Liam Williams is a Welsh professional boxer who has been making waves in the boxing world for over a decade. With a professional career spanning over 28 fights, Williams has proven himself to be a force to be reckoned with. Here's an in-depth look at his career and achievements thus far:

Early Career:

Williams made his professional boxing debut in 2011 at 19 years old against Ryan Clark, defeating Clark by a four-round unanimous decision. He went on to win his next seven fights in a row, three of which were won by stoppage.

Regional Titles:

Williams really began to make a name for himself in 2014 when he won the Commonwealth light-middleweight title, which he held for two years until 2016. In the same year, he won the British national title by stopping Kris Carslaw in the second round. Williams retained both titles by defeating Gary Corcoran at the Ice Arena in Wales in 2016, with an 11th-round stoppage.

First Loss:

During his professional boxing career, Williams has only suffered four losses, the first of which was on April 8, 2017, against Liam Smith. The loss ended Williams' 16-fight win streak. Although Williams lost, the fight was controversial as there was incorrect weight for the bout, making Smith ineligible to inherit the interim WBO light-middleweight world title held by Canelo Alvarez.

Notable Fights and Victories:

Williams has had some notable fights and victories throughout his career, including wins over Alantez Fox, Michael Lomax, Andrew Robinson, Mark Heffron, Gary Corcoran, and Karim Achour. One of his most impressive performances came in December 2019, when he fought Alantez Fox, ranked #2 by the WBO and #12 by the IBF at middleweight. Williams won the fight with a fifth-round TKO.

World Title Fight:

Williams had his first world title fight in April 2021 at the age of 28, after 26 professional fights. He challenged Demetrius Andrade for the WBO middleweight title but lost by unanimous decision with scores of 118–109, 118–109, 116–111. Despite the loss, the fight against Andrade is the sole highlight of his career so far.

Recent Fights:

Williams' most recent fight was on February 5, 2022, against British boxer Chris Eubank Jr., in a non-title bout. Williams lost the fight via a 12-round unanimous decision. This loss marks his second consecutive loss following the defeat against Andrade in April 2021.

Professional Record:

Williams' professional boxing record consists of 28 fights, 23 wins, four losses, and one draw. He has 18 knockout wins and one loss via knockout. The Welsh boxer's weight class has varied between light-middleweight and middleweight.

Nickname and Personal Information:

Williams is also known by the nickname "The Machine." He was born on May 26, 1992, and stands at 5ft 10in (178 cm) tall with a reach of 70in (178 cm). His stance is orthodox, and he comes from Church Village, Wales.
