Liam Williams believes that the situation regarding COVID19 is not good and that it will affect him and other fighters. “I would say I am pretty lucky the way things are at the moment,” he said. “Let’s be honest, the situation with Covid doesn’t seem to be getting a lot better.
It looked like they were getting on top of things and then it seems to be picking up again. “A full year out of the ring is no good for anybody and I like to have a lot of momentum going into a fight. You don’t want to be starting and stopping, I’m just really happy and excited”.
He says that at the beginning of the pandemic he was happy because he could finally rest but after 2 days the situation changed "At the start of the lockdown I was loving life, I was thinking ‘f---king hell, this is class’,” he said.
“I didn’t have to leave the house, I could just sit in my pyjamas all day and eat food. After about two days I was bored sh-tless. “I did my fair share of work, but not as much as I probably should have, but probably more than a lot of others.
I was trying to make the most of what I had, whether I was In the garden, or running a mountain. I got a bag in the garage, did a lot of ground exercises and shadow boxing with weights. I had three to four months off the gym.
Living in the Rhondda Valley, there are mountains all around me, so I’m pretty lucky." There is a lot of talk about him and Andrade “I don’t really know what has been going on,” he said. “There have obviously been talks behind the scenes, but I told them I couldn’t care less about any details until I get through this fight.
When I wake up on Sunday morning we can talk about Andrade. “Robinson is coming off a good win, so he is on a mental high from that. He feels he is in a good place. But I can’t afford to overlook him and I haven’t overlooked him.
I’m going to good job on him. He’s tall, rangy and quite unorthodox in the way he goes about things. I’m pretty sure I will be able to figure him out and break him down. “Everyone brings their own threats so you have to take every individual differently, so we have been working on different things in the gym. I believe I will break him down and stop him”.
