Exclusive: Liam Williams looks forward to Wales return on April 14
Liam Williams is excited to box back in Wales imminently and is confident of getting back to winning ways.
Williams hasn’t boxed since November last year, where he lost a majority decision to Liam Smith in Newcastle. He steps back into the squared circle on April 14 at the Ice arena in Cardiff.
“Yes I can’t wait I’m excited, I mean it’s not a Frank Warren bill and he’s kindly enough paying my way so I can box back in Wales and get me back in the ring, it’s being promoted by Sanigar Events.
“It gives me the opportunity to get out there and have a little warm-up fight.” Williams exclusively told World Boxing News.
Obviously, Williams isn’t going to be jumping straight back in at the level he has been fighting at in his last two fights after he fought two extremely close fights with former WBO World title challenger Liam ‘Beefy’ Smith.
Discussing potential opponents, Williams said: ”I have no idea whatsoever, to be totally honest with you. I don’t really care either, I’m just excited, I think whoever they put me in front of me I’m just going to go through them.
“I don’t really like to say warm up fights as I don’t want to take it for granted. I want to get someone who’s actually going to give me a fight, I don’t want to bang someone out in a round.
“That will do me no favours. I’m experienced now I don’t need that kind of fight anymore. ” Smith added.
The popular Welshman hasn’t fought in Wales for almost 18 months and is looking forward to fight in front of his home fans again.
Williams concluded: “I can’t wait I’m just excited to box back home and I’m going to put on a good show. I’m happy the Welsh people to get a chance to come see me box again.”
