Over the past eight months, Clydach’s Liam Williams has experienced a series of setbacks that turned his dream opportunities into a never-ending nightmare. After a disappointing hometown stage with Chris Eubank Jnr in early 2022, Williams only managed to secure a confidence-boosting victory against Nizar Trimech at the end of the year. However, since then, he has been stuck on the sidelines, struggling to regain control of his career. Williams believes he only has a maximum of four years left to compete, and he is determined to make the most of it.
Recently, Williams confirmed that he is once again a promotionally free agent and is looking for another chance to fight for a world title. He understands that he needs to work his way up before he can think about winning a world title. Williams is gearing up to make another charge to the top and believes that the final phase of his career will likely be spent at middleweight.
Williams learned not to plan too far ahead based on his recent experiences. He signed a promotional deal with Probellum in February 2022, hoping for a bright future with the new outfit. However, problems arose when Probellum was linked to Daniel Kinahan, an alleged figurehead of a worldwide organized crime empire. This connection led to Probellum’s downfall, and Williams was left without the big paydays he had hoped for.
Despite the difficulties he faced, Williams remains optimistic about his future in boxing. He has worked hard in the gym and has reconnected with coach Gary Lockett, who has been a source of support throughout his career. Williams is now focused on his next challenge, a potential fight against Aaron McKenna in October. He is excited about the opportunity and believes that there are even bigger fights on the horizon for him.
