Welsh and British boxing star Liam Williams believes he is on the verge of something special and hopes to bag a world title mandatory fight against WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade in the New Year.
The welsh man is the current British middleweight champion but Williams is still seeking his first world title fight and has his focus on current WBO middleweight champion Andrade. The American Andrade is a two weight world champion (super-welterweight and middleweight) and is undefeated in 29 fights but critics claim he still hasn’t fought a big name or been tested as of yet at the highest level.
Williams shared his thoughts on Andrade as a boxer and his hopes for a fight with him in 2021, during the press conference for his up-coming bout against fellow brit Andrew Robinson – “He’s quite big, he’s taller than me, he looks solid but as I’ve shown in my last couple of fights that doesn’t really matter. When I hit them on the button they can be as solid as they want, they’re going to go. The Andrade fight is very close, I’m mandatory challenger so that fight has got to happen next. I did give him the go head to fight beforehand in a non-title fight because I’m fighting but our next big fight has to be against each other. At the moment, I don’t really want to know what’s going on [with negotiations] because I’ve got a job to do and I don’t want to get carried away thinking of someone else, I need to get my full focus on beating Robinson first.”
