Demetrius Andrade vs Liam Williams- Preview

The 12-round main event clash will bring a 6’10” southpaw in Andrade against a 5’10” orthodox boxer, Liam Williams. While both of them are hard-hitters, they have their significant chances of winning.

Akin to Andrade, Williams would have also been unbeaten if he didn’t suffer the back-to-back losses against Liam Smith. Despite those setbacks, he has regained his momentum with five wins on the trot and looks promising at this stage.
