Liam Williams to defend British middleweight title to Andrew Robinson

British middleweight champion Liam 'The Machine' Williams (21-2-1) will make the second defence of his Lonsdale belt against English middleweight contender Andrew 'D'Animal' Robinson (23-4-1), 34 from Redditch, West Midlands.

Welshman Williams has reeled off five straight KOs since his back to back brace of defeats to Liam Smith in 2017 and collected the British and WBC Silver middleweight titles. Since his 2013 technical draw with Tyan Booth, every Williams win has ended inside the distance.

The challenger also comes into the contest on form, as Robinson's last win was an unbelievable points victory over Polish sensation Damian Jonak – unbeaten in 42 contests and 13 years before facing the Birmingham beast – in Katowice in April.
