Liam Williams says he does not believe Chris Eubank Jr’s partnership with trainer Roy Jones Jr has benefitted him whatsoever ahead of their bout on December 11 in Cardiff.

Williams, whose domestic battle with Eubank Jr will be shown on Sky Sports, believes he could even be victorious inside the distance.

“I’m very excited to get the fight made,” Williams said. “It’s been coming for a long time. I can’t wait to shut his mouth once and for all. There’s nothing like a big domestic showdown to get the juices flowing. A lot of people have been calling for this fight for a long time. I personally think it’s the biggest all-British fight outside of AJ and Fury.

“I’m really excited and just counting down the days. I’ve not been that impressed with Chris’ recent performances. People are talking about how he’s brought Roy Jones in to improve him but if I’m being totally honest I don’t think he’s improved one bit. A win in this fight and possibly even a stoppage over Eubank and my name is going to be well and truly out there and in the mix for world titles.”
