Back in April, we witnessed a thrilling light-middleweight fight between Liam Smith and Liam Williams.

The fight as won in controversial circumstances by Liam Smith after Liam Williams was withdrawn by his corner after obtaining a bad cut in suspicious circumstances.

Some time ago a re-match was announced and it was thought that the fight would take place in Manchester.

However, that is not the case with Frank Warren confirming that the fight, which will be an eliminator for the WBO world lightweight title, will take place in Newcastle on 28th October.

The fighters go into the fight keen to prove who is the best, Liam Smith will be hoping to extend his record that currently reads 25-1-1 whilst Liam Williams will be looking to get revenge with his ring record standing at 17-1.

Talking about taking the fight to Newcastle, Frank Warren remarked to the media,

‘I’m delighted to bring this huge rematch to Newcastle which is a city with a rich tradition of big fight nights. In the past I have bought shows with Ricky Hatton, Joe Calzaghe, Nigel Benn and Prince Naseem Hamed to Newcastle and I’m sure this is set to rival the very best that we’ve done there.?

It?s a fight we?ll look forward to.
