Chris Eubank Jr and Liam Williams will clash in their highly anticipated fight this weekend with the latter heading into the bout as the clear favourite following five wins on the bounce since his damning defeat to George Groves back in 2018.
Eubank has had it very easy in his previous few fights. The likes of JJ McDonagh back in 2018 immediately after the Groves fight barely put up a test for the Englishman as he was dispatched within three rounds of the scheduled 10-round bout. Eubank would then clash with James DeGale for the vacant IBO super-middleweight title in what was one of his best performances to date and the retention of his IBO title that he lost to Groves back in Manchester in 2018 would come from this too.
Eubank turned back the clock in that fight and the two-time world champion DeGale looked out of place in the fight throughout as his opponent convincingly got the job done. Now, in this clash with Williams, we expect the same situation to come to the ring once more with Eubank a 1/3 favourite to win the fight and 13/8 to win by decision.
The 32-year-old can get the TKO/KO too. His victories over Wanik Awdijan and Matt Korobov in recent bouts highlight this as Eubank was able to move to 23 wins via TKO/KO after the recent win over the German in October. He is now 11/8 to win in this manner.
Williams isn't a standing punching bag like Awdijan was, however, and the Welshman has a similar knockout ratio to that of Eubank, while in reality, neither of them are ferociously powerful and are more on the technical and speed side of the game.
Eubank is the world's best active middleweight according to BoxRec, and we can't look that far past "Next Gen" getting the win here via a decision victory. The knockout will always be there given his previous fights and his technical ability. However, with Williams losing last time out, Eubank and 0 knockouts in the fight is our call here.
