The Smith vs. Williams 2 card, presented by Frank Warren’s Queensbury Promotions, is headlined by the “Battle of the Liams,” Smith and Williams, squaring off in a 12-round World Boxing Organization (WBO) super welterweight title eliminator.

Williams insists Smith flagrantly headbutted him, while Smith feels he was denied a knockout victory.
