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

However, the British middleweight duo will finally settle their differences this weekend as Eubank Jr travels to his rival’s hometown in a bid to take a key, high-profile step on his journey back to world title contention.

The 32-year-old – now trained by the legendary Roy Jones Jr – has put together a run of five straight wins since his second professional defeat by George Groves in early 2019 and was last seen forcing Wanik Awdijan to retire after five rounds in Newcastle in October.

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

‘The Machine’ is a tough and durable customer otherwise best known for his pair of meetings with Liam Smith back in 2017.

Saturday’s undercard is headlined by the UK debut of the great Claressa Shields, who defends her WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight titles against Ema Kozin as she builds up to a blockbuster undisputed showdown with nemesis and British WBO champion Savannah Marshall.

Former Tyson Fury opponent Otto Wallin is also in action along with Harlem Eubank, Chris Jr’s cousin, and the professional debut of Caroline Dubois.
