What have they said?
“When I win this fight, the options and opportunities are endless,” Williams told SunSport. “And I am going to get the massive fights and massive paydays I deserve.
“I want to go on and make a massive name for myself, alongside some of Wales’ other great fighters like Joe Calzaghe, Nathan Cleverly, Gavin Rees and Lee Selby.
“For me to put my name alongside those former world champions will be massive.
“He is a tall and rangy southpaw so he is going to come out poking and picking at the start and make the beginning a challenge.
“But then I am going to get on him, break him down and stop him. I think anytime after rounds six or seven I will be able to stop him.”
