Liam Williams will attempt to win his maiden world title when he challenges Demetrius Andrade for the WBO middleweight belt on Saturday evening.

The Welsh fighter previously came up short twice against Liam Smith in 2017, suffering the only two defeats of his professional career, but has been a rejuvenated force under trainer Dominic Ingle, winning seven successive bouts by knockout to become the mandatory challenger at 160lbs.

Andrade, who was a decorated amateur before winning world titles at 154lbs and 160lbs is yet to taste defeat, winning all 29 of his professional contests, although his quality of opposition has often been questionable. He hopes victory against Williams will set up a career-defining bout against Gennadiy Golovkin.

Williams, though, insists he will lay waste to those plans. “Unfortunately boxing is a sport where fighters can hide behind their sanctioning bodies, managers, promoters, broadcasters,” he said. “There are so many ways to worm your way out of fights these days. I have had to sit on the sidelines and wait my turn, I have tried being nice and being nasty, I have beaten everyone put in front of me… I will not be denied any longer.”
