Chris Eubank Jr says he will silence rival Liam Williams when they meet on December 11 in Cardiff, live on Sky Sports.

Eubank was last in action in October – halting Germany’s Wanik Awdijan in five rounds, while Williams returns for the first time since his unanimous decision defat to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade.

“Liam Williams has been saying a lot to try to catch my attention and bait me into fighting him,” said Eubank Jr. “It’s now got to the point where everyone is asking me to shut him up, and on December 11, I’m going to give the people what they want. 

“As I’ve said, I’m only involved in big fights from now on and this is the fight people want to see. They want to see if Williams can back up what he’s been saying – which he won’t. I’m on a mission towards world titles and Liam Williams is someone I’ve got to go through to get there. I’m looking forward to shutting him up.”
