Liam Williams vs Demetrius Andrade will be a fight feast for the fans

While Williams also claimed of being Andrade’s fan in the past, he surely doesn’t feel the same anymore. With an official date on his calendar, ‘The Machine’ is gearing up for a high-voltage title shot. Furthermore, he is doing everything to get under his opponent’s skin.

The Brit said, “I just think he’s a complete weirdo, a very strange man – I’ve watched him for some time, I used to be a bit of a fan of him back then, now I get the chance to share a ring with him and punch his face in and I can’t wait to do it.

“I’m going to punch lumps out of him, nonstop. The first couple of rounds could be tricky, but I believe that I will get on top of him and start beating him up.”

Despite Smith’s confidence, Andrade will be the favorite on paper as he’s been a 2-division champion with 29 wins (18 KO’s)

So, ‘Boo Boo’ will clearly have an upper hand and Smith doesn’t mind being the underdog. While he respects Andrade’s achievements, he will not let them shake his will to win.

‘The Machine’ continued, “I think he (Andrade) might overlook me, possibly. To be honest, maybe he has deserved to get a fight with Canelo, GGG, he’s been World champion for a long time, a 2-weight and 3-time champion, so he’s probably deserved those fights, but his time is up now and once I deal with him, I’ll get those fights.”
