Williams willing to box anyone for a shot at the British title

Clydach Vale’s Liam Williams (10-0, 5KO) has stated that he’s prepared to face anyone he has to in order to fight for the British light-middleweight title. The Welshman’s next fight might be against the winner of the Scottish civil war between John Thain and Kris Carslaw who meet on September 6th in an eliminator for the British title which is currently held by Liverpool’s Liam Smith. However, Williams has no preference who he faces in a ‘final eliminator’ and he’s prepared to box the both of them. He said, “I expect John Thain to win but I’ve not seen a lot of Kris Carslaw. Either way, I’m happy to fight either one of them. I’m not bothered who wins, I just train hard and get ready for anyone I have to. “I’m not sure what’s happening next, I could have a keep busy fight because I think they’re waiting for the next eliminator. I’m just waiting to hear from Frank Warren what the situation is. I’ll just keep training in that time and see who wins, Thain or Carslaw.” Last month, 22-year-old Williams looked exceptional in his own title eliminator fight as he forced Oldham’s Ronnie Heffron to retire on his stool after six rounds. Despite Williams’ dominance, he isn’t getting carried away with what was his breakthrough on to the wider British scene. He said, “I didn’t really step it up to what I could have but more or less, it was a good performance. I’m happy enough with the performance and the way it went, straight forward for me. “Me and Gary (Lockett – trainer and manager) took the fight straight away, we wanted it. We knew I had the style to cause Ronnie Heffron a lot of problems, I did and we were proved right in the fight.” Williams was in Heffron’s hometown and appeared in the away boxer’s corner but he didn’t let it phase or affect him. He said, “To be honest with you, I didn’t feel like I was up against it. I shouldn’t have been because we’re both Frank Warren fighters, I just went and fought my fight. It didn’t matter where it was, stuff like that doesn’t make a difference to me.”
