Liam Smith and Liam Williams collide this coming weekend in what promises to be one of the most captivating rematches of a tremendous 2017. There is lingering bad blood between the pair following their first fight where Smith recorded a controversial in their first clash in April when Williams surrendered on his stool at the end of the ninth with a cut eye.
Williams started by saying: “If I beat him this time around, which I totally believe I will, I think it is genuinely going to make him consider just where he goes next. “He is going to question just how far he can go now. It could be difficult for him to come back from if he loses.
Final presser done!
