    What a fight, forgot that this was this coming weekend. They’re really coming thick and fast at the moment, something every week!

    In terms of the fight I’m going to pick Andrade. Williams has made huge improvements since moving over to Ingle but he just doesn’t have a big win yet for me, there’s no marker down. In fact the only marker we’ve got on him is when he was comprehensively outboxed by Liam Smith. Yes he’s probably bigger and better now but come fight night you’d expect Andrade to be the bigger man - something Williams isn’t used to, you’d also expect him to have superior boxing skills. If Liam is to win this he’d be relying on his engine and maybe Andrade struggling at the weight, otherwise I’m backing Andrade on a fairly comprehensive points victory. 8-4 or something like that on rounds.

    Think you've summarised it perfectly, it would be great to see him do this but that's a heart over head statement. Andrade may be frustrating, but it will take a very good performance to beat him and likely a world class one to do it on points in his back yard. He's levels above anyone Smith has faced. Liam will have to try and push Andrade hard as he does have a tendency to do just enough each round then take a bit of time off. Plucky but clear defeat incoming...

    Andrade with a wide points win for me. Williams is a good domestic to European level fighter, he isnt world level and will be giving away all his advantage plus he is far inferior in terms of skill.

    Williams still has a lot of question marks around his mentality, he threw away the first Smith fight and froze in the second.

    Sadly can't see past Andrade winning this.

    Too big, too skillful and elusive, an underrated fighter plus he is the defending champion and has home advantage which means Liam will have to put in a truly incredible performance to get this on points.

    There are question marks about the opposition Andrade has faced but still to me it would be a big upset if Liam Williams won this.

    Andrade wins this comfortably on points.

    I'd love Williams to win but he's already failed twice when he's stepped up to a lesser opponent.

    Andrade is the heavy favourite here and you can see why. It’s a hard fight for Williams to win especially away from home.

    Williams should have some success though, wouldn’t surprise me if he wobbles or drops Andrade a few times but will still lose on the cards in the end

    hope he proves me wrong though, Andrade is a bit of a boring champion

    Lol, have a feeling Andrade and Ingle will be going at it at the presser.

    DAZN have scheduled this for 6PM ET, which means the main event will start at 11pm for UK fight fans.

    Going to subscribe for DAZN, £1.99 for this and Canelo-BJS is a bargain.
