CHRIS EUBANK JR buried his bitter grudge against Liam Williams by knocking him FOUR times in a punitive win over the Welshman
The 29-year-old Clydach man talks his way into the middleweight big-money showdown by insulting Eubank and his family members for more than a year.
Williams hit himself and partisan fans in a frenzy, marching around the ring and peering into the dark, looking menacing, and spitting on the floor in Jr.’s direction.
The roar of ‘Liam, Liam’ echoed around the arena and helped the local land in the first few bumps.
But then a perfectly timed jab by Eubank connected and made Williams sit down in his shorts, he beat the score but lost the round.
Eubank happily boxed with his back foot and let Williams push the pressure and he sent him into a sharp right-hander that beat the Welshman again in the second.

Williams watched his new corner team, headed by Adam Booth, in desperation with shock but beat the score.
Eubank was talking to Williams in the third minute, leaving him in the heat of the battle and he was warned about punching at halftime.
As Williams franticly threw and slid to the point of turning 360 degrees, Eubank even waved the matador’s pretend red rag to the raging bull.
The final few seconds were a shootout and then Eubank ended after the bell, referee Mark Lyson pulled him away and Williams’ team complained of a headbutt.
Williams then landed one of four sending the 32-year-old wobbly but he managed to laugh it off.
And his smile widened a few seconds later when he beat Williams for a hat-trick.
Eubank also continued to talk and brag in a trashy manner, silenced by the audience and criticizing Williams’ dwindling confidence.
Williams was shaken early in the fifth round again with his right hand and his swollen cheekbone began to discolor.
But he continued to attack Eubank and managed to turn the tide of the skirmish and enjoy some clean hits just before the alarm went off.
When Williams received a standing ovation from the fans in season six, Eubank was bold enough to look out of the chair and tell them they had backed up on the wrong horse.
Season seven is rough and violent but there are better moments in season eight when Eubank lands on the right but is also tagged back by one or two.
The well-trimmed beard that Williams mocked repeatedly during construction was hit hard by a peach of a peach right at the ripe end but those beards were stiff and Eubank didn’t wobble at all.
Williams improved in the second half of the skirmish but the damage on the side of the scorecard was done and Eubank could confidently raise his arm as long as he completed the round.
By the eleventh, Williams’ right eye was almost completely crushed and he was knocked out for the fourth time.
Eubank jumped for the final three minutes, taunting Williams whenever he could but he received a late warning when he was snapped off with a heavy blow to the ropes.
But Eubank added insult to injury by dancing and laughing in the final seconds as the crowd filled the arena with boos while he climbed the ropes to celebrate.
And after the game, he said Sports sky that he had set out to teach Williams ‘a lesson’ after all the chatter during preparations for the fight.
Jr. said: “I wanted to teach this man a lesson. He said some very threatening things to me.
“I thought, ‘I don’t even want to knock this guy out in the first round, I want to punish him.” I want to get people like that out of boxing. “
