LIAM WILLIAMS, 20-2-1, 15 early, knows that a win over Karim Achour on Saturday (July 13) will put him on the verge of a world title shot at middleweight and it is an opportunity he is not willing to let slip away from him again.

The 27-year-old “Machine” has been in a similar position before, losing twice in two close fights with Liam Smith in 2017, but he has worked himself back to where he believes he should be and is confident he will dispatch the Frenchman in impressive fashion.
