Liam Williams has inked a new long-term promotional deal with Frank Warren and Queensberry Promotions as he stands on the cusp of a World title shot.

‘The Machine’ (22-2-1, 17 KOs) has manoeuvred himself into a mandatory position for Demetrius Andrade’s WBO Middleweight crown following four straight wins, after moving up to 160lbs.

And the two-weight British champion, who stopped Alantez Fox with a brutal fifth round stoppage in December, having previously gone the distance with Andrade, insists his only focus is on securing a World title fight.

“I am happy to have mapped out my future and my entire focus is on getting my world title shot and winning it,” Williams said.

“I am so looking forward to the fight being made and becoming world champion. That is all that matters to me right now.

“We have been good for each other. Frank has delivered the fights to take me to mandatory position and I have done my side by winning them in the way I have.

 

“Nobody could ever say there has been any sort of failing on either side.

“It has all been good, I am happy and looking forward to moving forward.”

Hall-of-Fame Promoter Frank Warren is tasked with negotiating a deal to land Williams, 28, a maiden opportunity, with the fight set to head to purse bids.

And the 68-year-old has praised the Welshman for capitalising on his chances and believes he is destined for a big future.

“I am delighted Liam has committed to us for the long-term and I am convinced we will soon have a world middleweight champion on our books.

“We have provided the opportunities for him since he moved up to 160lbs and he has taken them and furthered his career in a way few would have imagined. He has taken the division by storm.

“He is fast becoming a bone-fide star at the weight with his style of fighting and the way he goes about his business.

“Hopefully we will have his world title shot nailed down as soon as possible and I am sure it will be the first of many big world title nights for Liam moving forward.”
