Liam Smith vs Liam Williams Live
Liam Smith and Liam Williams will have the chance to settle their “unfinished business” when they battle it out over 12 rounds in this official eliminator for the WBO super-welterweight title.
The pair met in April but a thrilling fight ended in unsatisfactory circumstances when Williams was pulled out in the ninth round with a really bad cut following a clash of heads with Smith.
The Welshman had dominated the opening rounds and was ahead at the time of the stoppage, although the fact Smith was in the ascendancy means it is far from certain who would have gone on to win had the fight continued.
And their animosity towards each other has increased in the build-up to their eagerly-awaited rematch at Newcastle Arena tonight.
Both suffered cut eyes in their first meeting back in April with British champ Williams retiring at the end of the ninth in controversial circumstances when Smith appeared to open up the gash with his head.
Since then, both fighters have argued fiercely, with Williams insisting that Smith should have been disqualified for a headbutt.
Smith, though, claims the injury wasn’t that serious and Williams could and should have carried on.
Scouser Smith said: “He chose to quit.
“He says he was winning so why did he pull out with a cut with just nine minutes left? He is saying he wasn’t fading – if so, he would have the last nine minutes. So why would he let a cut pull him out?
“If you put us in one room, I guarantee I will be the one to come out of that door.
“I would be the last one standing. His quitting on his stool proved that to me.”
Williams is still bitter about the outcome of the interim WBO title bout.
He said: “The final butt was deliberate. Heads had been bumping all night and I believe one million per cent that Smith should have been disqualified.
“I felt very let down by referee Terry O’Connor who, I feel, robbed me of my unbeaten record and the chance to become world champion.”
