Following the announcement by the Welsh Government that indoor sports events can resume in Wales, Boxxer announced that the showdown between Chris Eubank Jr. (31-2, 23 KOs) and Liam Williams (23-3-1, 18 KOs) will take place at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on Saturday, February 5th, live and exclusively on Sky Sports. On the undercard, proud Welshman and former British and Commonwealth Champion Chris ‘Rock ‘n’ Rolla’ Jenkins (22-4-3, 8 KO’s) heads to his nation’s capital from his hometown of Garnant as he faces former two-belt 140-pound champion Julius Indongo (23-4, 12 KOs) in a welterweight showdown. Indongo’s last visit on these shores in April 2017 saw him relieve Ricky Burns of his world title at his Glasgow fortress and will hold no fear of Jenkins' fierce fan base. Also on the undercard, will be Darren Tetley, who expects an all-action war when he faces Wolverhampton’s Conah Walker (10-0-1, 3 KO’s)
Tetley won the English title by way of a sixth-round body-shot stoppage of Samuel ‘True Sensation’ Antwi (13-1, 6 KOs) last summer, while Wlaker demolished Jack Ewbank in the first round of their contest in October.
Already announced as the chief supporting bout, two-time Olympic gold medallist Claressa Shields (11-0, 2 KOs) makes her UK debut, defending her WBA, WBC and IBF middleweight championships against Ema Kozin (21-0-1, 11 KOs).
Also set for the undercard, with no opponent named yet, 21 year-old Caroline Dubois looks to follow her older brother Daniel into the professional ranks. Carolone had a stellar amateur career in which she became World Youth Olympic Champion and won the European Youth Championships four times,
Welsh super bantamweight Rhys Edwards (11-0, 4 KO’s) looks to maintain his undefeated run in an eight-round contest against experienced Russian Ruslan Berchuk (13-13, 4 KO’s). The 21 year-old, from Penygraig, is trained by former world champion Gary Lockett and has been heralded as one of the best up-and-coming prospects in Wales.
Giant Geordie Steve Robinson, last seen dismantling Reece Barlow in just 82 seconds back in November, heads down from Newcastle on a mission to add another knockout to his highlight reel. With finishes in his four-fight career, the power-punching heavyweight has no intention of going the distance with Shane Gill.
Harlem Eubank (12-0, 4 KO’s), cousin of headline draw Chris Eubank Jr and also part of the Wasserman Boxing stable, adds to the family business on fight night. The Sussex 140 pounder returns to action following a stoppage win over Nika Nakashidze in Riga, Latvia on October 16th and will be looking to extend his unbeaten record in Cardiff.
