Liam ‘The Machine’ Williams number 3 in the British Middleweight division. Turning pro in 2011 at light-middleweight at the age of 18.
He has held the British Title at Light Middleweight and Middleweight and challenged Liam Smith in Manchester for the WBO World Title. What a fight this was, it announced Liam on the world stage, he sustained a huge cut on his eye during the fight and his trainer at the time Gary Lockett, pulled him out. He subsequently got the rematch with Liam and it was another cracker.
