British middleweight champion Liam Williams (22-2-1, 17KOs) is in action for the first time in 2020 to defend his belt against mandatory challenger Andrew Robinson. Since losing back-to-back bouts against Liam Smith in 2017, Williams has racked up six consecutive wins via KO/TKO and he will be determined to carry on from where he left off prior to the enforced break due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Andrew Robinson (24-4-1, 7KOs) comes into this contest with six wins from his last seven bouts, this is a step up in class for the man from Redditch. Although he has only been stopped once in his career, the calibre of opponent that he has faced in recent times have not possessed the power or quality that his opponent in this fight has at his disposal.
Liam Williams has looked in excellent shape over the last couple of years and he certainly has his sights set on a World title shot – which does not look to be too far away. The Welshman will be raring to go in his first bout since December and expect him to come out strongly against Robinson. Four of Williams’ last six wins have come in the opening three rounds and expect another quickfire victory in this bout.
In the first fight, with the WBO interim World super-welterweight title on the line, Williams got the better of the Liverpudlian in Manchester, until a head clash, deemed purposeful by many spectators, caused a double laceration to the Welshman’s right eyelid and he was retired by his corner in round nine despite leading on all three scorecards at the time.In the rematch, Smith bucked up his ideas and deserved the mixed decision victory after 12 exciting rounds of action.
Williams bounced back with a brace of wins before challenging for the British title at a second weight division up at middleweight. Williams won the super-welterweight belt in December 2015 which he defended once, successfully, in an epic battle with then-unbeaten Gary Corcoron (18-3, 8KOs), which ended in the 11th round.
The Lonsdale belt was vacant and it was unbeaten powerhouse Mark Heffron (25-1-1, 19KOs) that stood in his way of becoming a two-weight British champion, and spectators were soon left stunned with the way that Williams despatched of Oldham’s ‘Kid Dynamite’ in the 10th round, then were further amazed with the way he handled his first defence by blasting away the durable ‘Smokin’ Joe Mullender (11-3, 5KOs) in just two rounds.
