Boxing Fight: Chris Eubank Jr’s long-awaited rematch with Liam Williams has been approved for a date in Cardiff on Saturday, February 5.
Eubank Jr may finally resolve his bitter rivalry with the Welshman at the Motorpoint Arena, after the Welsh Government’s announcement on Friday that indoor sports events can restart in Wales.
The middleweights were supposed to fight a week earlier, on Saturday, January 29, but the British Boxing Board of Control halted all boxing for the rest of the month to allow doctors and medical specialists to focus on their work with the NHS during the pandemic.
