Boxing Fight: The big British middleweight fight between Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Williams has been rescheduled for Saturday, January 29 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.

After Williams experienced a recurrence of the shoulder injury he received in a world title fight against Demetrius Andrade in April, the bout – sponsored by BOXXER in collaboration with Wasserman Boxing – was rescheduled for the new year.

Williams has been told that the flare-up can be handled without surgery after a series of scans and meetings with medical professionals and that the Eubank Jr bout will go place at the end of January to kick off a tremendous year.

“We were devastated to learn of Liam’s injuries, but we are equally ecstatic to get this fight back on in a couple of weeks to assure Liam’s full recovery,” said Ben Shalom, BOXXER’s Founder and CEO.

“The animosity and mind games between them have only grown during this time, and by the time they step into the ring, it will have reached boiling point. I’m delighted that the fans will get to see the battle that they’ve been waiting for.

“The biggest domestic fight of 2021 was going to be this.” It’ll now be the biggest domestic fight of 2022, and it’ll kick off the Sky Sports Boxing new year in style. From top to bottom, it’s a fantastic card, and we can’t wait to experience the excitement at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on fight night. It’ll be electrifying.”

“We’ll have to wait a few more weeks for Chris Eubank Jr vs Liam Williams, an unexpected twist in a hot rivalry that has now grown even more intense,” stated Adam Smith.

“When Eubank and Williams recently filmed ‘The Gloves Are Off’ in Sky Studios, there was a lot of tension, so expect a typical British brawl when they finally share the ring.

“At the start of 2022, we’re planning a blockbuster calendar that will be better than ever, with Josh Taylor defending his unchallenged world titles in February – and there will be more exciting announcements coming very soon!”

Wasserman’s Head of Global Boxing, Kalle Sauerland, said: “We were certainly disappointed to learn of Liam Williams’ injury, but we will only have to wait a few weeks to see this exciting match. The biggest fight in British boxing right now is Chris Eubank Jr vs. Liam Williams.

“There is true animosity between them, and their rivalry will only grow as fight night approaches.” This is the matchup that everyone has been anticipating.

“When these two fighters eventually meet in the middle of the ring to resolve their disagreements, the atmosphere in Cardiff will be amazing.”
