Chris Eubankr Jr. hopes to knock Liam Williams out in the ring and then push him ‘out of boxing’ when they meet on Saturday night.
The pair fight on February 5th in Cardiff in a fight that was twice rescheduled, once due to Williams’ shoulder injury and then because of the British Boxing Board of Control’s decision to suspend boxing throughout January as a response to the coronavirus pandemic.
Eubank Jr. disputed whether he was the unpopular figure given he fights in William’s hometown.
"Am I the bad guy? I don't know if I like that title,” he told Sky Sports.
"We are in his back garden. But we are feeling strong and fit. I am very motivated.
"I am a stand-up guy and a standard-bearer for the sport, someone that kids can look up to and say: 'I want to be like him'.
"Their parents want them to be like me.
"Williams is a bad representative of the sport. The way he talks, the way he holds himself. He needs to be pushed out of boxing.”
Eubank also said Williams is going to face a tough test.
"He's in for a serious and rude awakening,” he continued.
"Anywhere the fight goes, he'll be out of his depth. A fight, a boxing match, chess, a punch-up. I'll be on him all night until he quits.
"I don't see this fight going 12 rounds.
"My objective is to punish him until he gets knocked out or he quits."
