That left Eubank to qualify his opponent as a ‘bottle job’. However, the 32-year-old insists he will make Williams pay for his words on the road to securing big fights in 2022.
“He’s a traitor, a keyboard warrior,” Eubank said. ‘I said he has a big mouth but he only has big thumbs. Today he had nothing to say for himself, he came here speaking of respect. How can you go from the things you said on Twitter to talking about respect? It is shameful. Shameful.
‘I was not surprised, I said when I came here that I was going to bottle it and that it is a bottle job. He knows what is coming and he knows that he has convinced himself to take a position that he cannot get out of. Now you will pay for what you said.
The couple have been exchanging insults on social media and Eubank Jr has promised to punish Williams.
The victory over Williams, who failed a world title tilt last time, would keep Eubank’s hopes of a mega fight alive in 2022.
The 32-year-old has long pursued players like Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez. ‘GGG’ faces Ryota Murata fifteen days after Eubank-Williams and Junior insisted: ‘I would love the winner of that fight. I am qualified with the WBA, I was interim world champion, his belt is on the line in that fight, he should be next, why not? ‘
He would love to lure Golovkin to these shores.
‘Wouldn’t it be great to have that fight at the Amex in Brighton? That’s what dreams are made of.
However, first, Eubank must pass through Williams in the Welsh capital. The 32-year-old was happy to give up his home advantage and insisted:
“ If you need the crowd to help you muster up the courage to take it to the ring with me, give it to them. ”

Eubank sat at the top table in a gaudy fur coat and sunglasses. He looked like a total jerk, an absolute clown, ” Williams insisted.

“He’s put me in the mindset that this is a personal situation, it’s just going to be bad for him,” Junior said.
‘There will be more spite in my punches at night … when you attack someone the way you have attacked me, you talk about me the way he has, then it can’t be anything but personal. He has dug his grave and is now going to lie in it.
