Eubank Jr has vowed to make Williams pay for his comments on social media in the build-up to their grudge match that will take place on December 11 in Cardiff
Chris Eubank Jr has vowed to make Liam Williams pay for his “scumbag” rant in the build-up to their domestic showdown.
The pair will face-off in a huge grudge match next month in Cardiff as they each look to bolster their respective world title bids.
Eubank Jr will look to continue his winning return to action while Williams will be rallying for a response after his defeat by Demetrius Andrade.
The pair have been embroiled in a feud for several months, and Eubank Jr has vowed to make his opponent pay for his previous “scumbag” rant he delivered on social media.
“He has said a lot of reckless things online and it doesn’t sit well with me at all,” Eubank Jr said.
“Respect is definitely not a word I would use in my feeling towards Liam. He has said a lot of reckless feelings online and it doesn’t sit well with me.
“This is a grudge match and genuine domestic rivalry, the things he has said has made it personal.
“The things he has said, lowlife, scumbag and cretin, these are the words that I can use to describe a man that talks the way he talks and he will eat his words soon enough.
“It seems he has come here today and take about respect but it has gone too far past that and he is going to get embarrassed.”
Eubank Jr has begun his renaissance in the middleweight division under new promotional label BOXXER, with his debut for the platform resulting in a resounding stoppage victory over Wanik Awdijan.
And he is planning to beat Williams before challenging for a middleweight title next year.
This could potentially set up a challenge to the winner of the unification clash between Gennady Golovkin and Ryota Murata at the end of the year.
Who will win on December 11- Chris Eubank Jr or Liam Williams? Let us know your prediction in the comments section below
He must first progress beyond a stern test of his credentials in Williams who has competed at world level last time out losing to Andrade by decision.
The only other blotches on William’s record have come against Liam Smith to whom he lost on two back-to-back occasions in 2017.
But the Welshman has vowed to deliver the goods in front of his passionate home crowd later in the year, while revealing the personal nature of his latest rivalry.
“I have to go through him and deal with Chris, I have a lot of respect for him as a fighter,” Williams said.
“As a fighter he is tough and durable and respect to him in that sense, but he is just another opponent to me and I want to punch his head in and move forward.”
“Personally though I don’t have much respect for him and I don’t like the way he goes about his business, he isn’t someone I would want to be friends with.”
“I personally think this guys full of s***, he must of had some lessons on how to talk from his daddy.
“It is going to be a win for Liam Williams no doubt and it is going to be a great fight for the fans.”
