    Surprise surprise!! Williams latest IFL interview (yesterday) says that they’re waiting for an opponent on 21st December and it will be a WBO eliminator. (Which also gives credit to the fox rumours). He’s also heard rumours that Andrade will vacate (shock!!!) the title and move up to fight Saunders!

    He’s number 1 with the WBO not that their rankings ever mean much. But yeah it’s not a bad fight. It’s more the fact that I predicted exactly what would happen and it’s happening.

    When was the last time a Warren fighter fought for the IBF/WBA/WBC belts? Or how often has it opened over the past 4/5 years?

    Thought he was WBO to be honest. Just seen IBF. Other than that the other ones I can think of are Tete, Smith, Flanagan, Yarde (challenged), Saunders (two weights).

    The DAZN money seems to have dried up for the fighters outside of Canelo & AJ, so I reckon Frank might have a fair chance of winning a purse bid.

    Canelo has also apparently dismissed the idea of a Andrade fight, calling him boring so that should also strengthen Warrens chances.

    if he does get him over here, I would fancy Williams on points.

    I don’t thinks it has at all. Not that it matters, I’ve told you Andrade will vacate and move up, Williams fights for a vacant title, probably against Luke Keeler...

    I get that he might move up, but It looks clear to me, that DAZN don’t seem keen to pay for boring Andrade defences like against Sulecki anymore so that’s probably forced the decision to go up for Saunders which they would get behind.

    It looks like Farmer might be considering going to PBC/Arum which if true is likely to be for a similar reason.

    Whoever he fights for the belt, I hope it’s a big purse as Williams is a cracking fighter.
