Williams: Andrade is a clown

Mandatory challenger Liam Williams (23-2-1, 18 KOs) says he has the power and the heart to knock out WBO middleweight king Demetrius Andrade (29-0, 18 KOs) at Hard Rock Live at Hard Rock Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Hollywood, Fl. on Saturday April 17, live worldwide on DAZN.

“I don’t think he has the same intensity as me,’ said Williams. “I wear my heart on my sleeve. I can punch harder than him. I have a better engine than him. I’m going to bring it all on the night and I don’t think he has the answers.

“He’s a clown. I don’t think he’s wired up right, he’s got a screw loose. His mannerisms, the way he acts and talks on his interviews, he’s just a little bit strange and I can’t put my finger on it. He’s an oddball.

“It’s a risky fight for both of us. He’s the champion and I’m the number one contender. If he loses, the belt goes and that’s his status gone, but the same for me, I’m back to the bottom of the pile, there’s a lot at stake and neither of us will take a backwards step and that’s what will make it a great fight.

“The outcome is me winning, whether that’s over the distance or inside the distance, it doesn’t matter to me. As long as I take that belt back to Britain, I have no doubt about it, I’m super confident and I don’t think there’s any way that he beats me. I think I can knock him out.

“I’ve had setbacks, I’ve had injuries, I’ve been told to retire, so getting my opportunity is a real achievement, but in saying that, this is the beginning of things for me with more massive step-ups and I’m not willing to stop here.”

  • He may be a clown Liam, but make sure you have studied all his tricks, so you don’t swing at air. Otherwise that clown could have the last laugh and you may end up on the canvas hearing a final voice like Jason Todd did saying “Wow, that looks like it REALLY hurt, What hurts more? “A”, or “B”, forehand or backhand?”

  • To the end of time, boxers will/may talk trash before a fight. However, after a fight, boxers usually show each other common courtesy, love and respect.

  • Lol Williams is absolutely correct! I’ve always seen Andrade as a straight up clown, a very unfunny clown! This guy tries soooo hard to appear cool and articulate and it’s so phony whenever he does an interview I change the channel and watching him fight is dreadful and boring and even the way he looks he thinks he’s cool with his hideous disheveled hairdo he actually looks like a transient. Would love to see Williams knock this clown out.

  • Lol I think Andrade sleeps under a bridge and doesn’t shower for 4 months at a time. He sure looks it with the horrendous hairdo and beard looks like it has spider webs in it.

    With that said I pick Andrade to win yet another very unspectacular boring decision which have become the norm with this very mediocre fighter.
