After the fight was hit with an unexpected setback, the fight between Eubank and Williams has been rescheduled for Saturday 29th January and will take place at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff, Wales.

Many thought that the fight would be cancelled altogether due to fears that Williams may need surgery on his shoulder - which proved not to be the case.

Quoted by Sky Sports, the Founder and CEO of BOXXER Ben Shalom spoke about the fight itself and Williams' injury.

He said: 

"We were absolutely gutted to hear of Liam's injury and so we are equally delighted to get this fight back on, in a matter of weeks, to ensure Liam's 100 per cent fitness. The bitterness and mind-games towards each other has only intensified during this period, and by the time they get into the ring it will be at boiling point. I'm glad the fans will get the chance to see the fight that they desperately wanted.

Shalom continued:

"This was going to be the biggest domestic fight of 2021. Now it's going to be the biggest domestic fight of 2022 and it's starting the Sky Sports Boxing new year with a bang. It's a great card from top to bottom and we can't wait to feel the atmosphere in the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on fight night. It's going to be electric."
