Williams Believes Liam Smith Intentionally Used His Head

Liam Williams has spent the time since his first bout with Liam Smith preparing to avenge the controversial defeat.

He will get the chance in Newcastle on November 11th as the fighters aim to end any lingering doubts as to who is the best Super-Welterweight in Britain.

The Welshman feels he was robbed of a proper conclusion due to the laceration over his eyelid and says he was prepared for Smith to make a late charge.

“I felt like I started very well and I was out-boxing him and getting a lot of rounds in the bag. He was coming on strong which we were always prepared for, that is the kind of fighter Liam is.”

Williams, however disappointed he was at the early ending, is aware that these things happen wants prepared to put things right this time: “It ended the way it did, it wasn't fair, we didn't give the fans a chance to see what the proper outcome should have been.

“I took a nasty cut to the eye, these things happen and it isn't a tickling contest. I'm glad we get a chance to do it again.”

Despite the former WBO World Champion coming on strong in the later rounds, the Rhondda Valley boxer is certain the clash of heads was a result of ‘Beefy’ losing his temper.

“I think he was down in the fight and he needed to do something. It was frustration and I do believe the head clash was intentional,” claimed Williams.

“Next time we are both going to be better. I am going to be more prepared and it’s going to be another cracking fight, I'm going to put this to bed."

Is Williams's British title on the line, or is it another one of FW's WBO trinkets?

Smith fight style is phone boot in nature so Williams have to box him.
