Press Conference Highlights

Both men met a final press conference to deliver their thoughts on their upcoming clash. Below is just some of what was said by the middleweights.

Liam Williams

“Camp’s gone really, really well,” said Williams. “Train my nuts off. I’m ready. If I’m not ready now, then I never will be. I feel like I’ve turned back the clock a little bit…”

“I give him his credit. Quality fighter. I’ve been quite impressed with him myself. Fair play to him, but I just think that the time is wrong [for him].

Hamzah Sheeraz

“Don’t really have much to say to be fair,” said Sheeraz. “Put in the work and yeah, Saturday night, let’s go.”

“He’s always looked dangerous to me, to be fair. I mean he’s got a lot of knockouts. The respect is there to be fair. I’d be a fool not to. But like I said, in terms of how preparation went for this camp, we prepared for the best version of him come Saturday night.”

“In my head, for sure,” said the Sheeraz whether he believes the best version of Williams still exists. “Like I said, if I didn’t think otherwise, I wouldn’t have prepared how I prepared and whatnot. Listen, it’s my time to shine. It’s my time to shine. I know you hear that all the time, you got a lot of fighters saying that. But, listen, I’ll win Saturday night, I’ll win in good fashion. There’s big things, big things in 2024.”

Big Fight Weekend Prediction

Sheeraz is a fighter on the rise and the younger of the two. While Williams has had more experience at a higher level, this fight feels like a passing of the torch. The last time “The Machine” fought an opponent of significance, he was dropped to the canvas four times en route to a unanimous decision loss to Chris Eubank Jr. Sheeraz is the taller man and also hits hard. Big Fight Weekend predicts a stoppage victory for Sheeraz as he takes another step towards world title honours.
