Eubank Jr vs Williams: What’s been said?

Eubank Jr: “Respect is definitely not a word I would use for my feelings towards Liam. He has said a lot of reckless things online. It doesn’t sit well with me.

“This is a grudge match, a genuine domestic rivalry. It is personal. He has made it personal. He has come here today and tried to talk about respect? It has gone too far past that now. He will pay for what he has said. He will get embarrassed.

“A real, true-life keyboard warrior. That’s what Liam Williams is.

“I’m No 1 in Britain, he’s No 2. So it’s going to be fireworks, it’s going to be an exciting fight and I can’t wait to get in there.”

Williams: “We all know what his strengths and weaknesses are.

“Anyone with a good jab and a bit of movement he’ll struggle with. If you stand in front of him with no head movement, he will punch holes in you.

“He’s very tough and durable.”
