Eubank Jr vs Williams: What time is the fight, undercard, prediction, odds and more

That fight was originally scheduled to take place in December, only to be moved once due to Williams’ recurring shoulder injury, and then again after Covid-19 brought British boxing shows to a halt in January.

However, the British middleweight duo will finally settle their differences this weekend as Eubank Jr travel to their rival’s hometown in a bid to take a key and high-profile milestone on their journey back to the top run. world title.

The 32-year-old – now trained by the legendary Roy Jones Jr – has enjoyed a five-game winning streak since his second professional loss to George Groves in early 2019 and was last seen forcing Wanik Awdijan into retirement after five rounds in Newcastle in October.

Eubank Jr will be the favorite to beat Williams but cannot underestimate the battle-hardened Welshman, who challenged for the WBO title in his last outing in April 2021 but was comfortably dispatched by the talented Demetrius Andrade in Florida.

‘The Machine’ is a tough and enduring client, otherwise known for his two encounters with Liam Smith in 2017.

Saturday’s undercard is headlined by the British debut of the great Claressa Shields, who defends her WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles against Ema Kozin as she prepares for an undisputed blockbuster showdown with arch-nemesis and British WBO champion Savannah Marshall.

Former Tyson Fury opponent Otto Wallin is also in action with Chris Jr’s cousin Harlem Eubank and debuting pro Caroline Dubois.
