Chris Eubank Jr. is “more interested in being a celebrity” than a fighter, Liam Williams has criticized as the enmity builds up against their fight.
Eubank Jr. takes to Williams’ hometown of Cardiff on Saturday, live on Sky Sports, to finally settle a bitter feud that began on social media and continues to come face to face.
“I do not like this man. He is a total clown,” Williams said on The Gloves Are Off, which is available on Demand now.
“He runs from the Eubank name. He is an embarrassment to the Eubank name.
“He’s not the half fighter that his father was.
“He’s more interested in being a celebrity than a fighter.”
Eubank Jr. shot back: “Celebrity? Celebrity has not kept me in the game for 10 years and won me 31 matches.
“If you’re not the real thing, you do not win, you do not get the following or the fandom that I have.
“If I’m a fake, why did he call me out?”
Williams said: “It will be hard to bulge his confidence because he is a confident guy. So was his father.
“Self-confidence does not win battles. You have to back it up. You have to stand and have a blow. That’s what I’m about.
