Williams takes on mandatory challenger Andrew Robinson, with a world title fight against WBO champion Demetrius Andrade if he wins

Liam Williams defends his British Middleweight Championship against mandatory challenger Andrew Robinson on Saturday at BT Sport studios in Stratford, with tough Clydach Vale aware that a world title opportunity against WBO champion Demetrius Andrade awaits him in early 2021 if he leaves the ring victorious

This week Williams also called out other names such as Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin, as he ends a 10-month absence from the ring: “There are so many good fights in and around my weight I would be willing to cut a few pounds or increase a few pounds I just want to do some big fights I want to be involved with the best « 

Williams (record 22 wins, two losses, one draw), who has 17 knockouts in his wins, downplayed the fact that the red haze often descends when he fights

« It’s not fair to say I’m the most angry man in boxing, but when I’m in the ring I have this nastiness about me and a short fuse Day to day , I’m a stable guy No matter what anyone says or does I always bring excitement and fire to all cylinders

« I’m ready to talk about fights with Andrade and people like Chris Eubank, for example, but I’m focusing on Andrew Robinson I’m really not looking past him But the ref will have to keep an eye on him cause I’m coming with bad intentions I’m going to be on the ball and the referee has to be on the ball cause someone might be injured I’m going to take Robinson’s heart and then come back, take his golden teeth and weigh them to get a nice little bonus « 

Regarding the potential world title challenge next year, he added: “Andrade is full of s — and keeps saying he’s ‘The Boogeyman’, but I’m continuing the fight with him I don’t care if he fights me or if he quits, as long as I get that world title I think he’s going to quit and I’m going to fight someone like Jaime Munguia, who has blood and guts everywhere « 

Robinson is not known as a huge puncher and has lost four of his 29 fights He explained: « I am living my dream and I am not getting involved in being overlooked I have always been a fan by Liam Williams It’s like a dream come true to fight one of the best middleweights in the world I will fight anyone and I am thrilled to be the ring with the number one fighter in the WBO rankings If I win , I’ll fight for a world title so I’m buzzing I went to Poland and beat Damian Jonak who hadn’t lost for 13 years God was with me that night and I hope it’s Saturday  »
