The Super-Welterweight division is thriving both of an international and domestic scene.
British and Commonwealth Champion Liam Williams returned from injury with a bang on our big December show to send out a statement to the rest of the division.
One man who was watching with interest was Gary Corcoran, who recently picked up the WBO Intercontinental Title with a shutout, convincing points victory over Danny Butler.
Unfortunately for Williams, his recent scheduled title defence against Nav Mansouri was postponed with the challenger suffering an injury but that hasn’t stopped the 23 year old from wanting to get back into the ring as quickly as possible.
Both Corcoran and Williams exchanged messages on Twitter in an attempt to get a potential fight finalised:
I need to get a fight with someone who ain't going to bottle it last minute...what you saying @GaryCorcoran21 you want some of the champ??👊🏻— Liam Williams (@LiamdullW) April 7, 2016
To which, the game Corcoran replied:
@LiamdullW sounds good to me , will enjoy taking your belt from you . Better double up on the training mate , it'll hurt 👌😏— Gary Corcoran (@GaryCorcoran21) April 7, 2016
Both fighters are unbeaten and with the potential of three belts on the line, would be a mouth-watering dust up with the winner going on to bigger and better things.
Ranked #12 in the WBO’s order of merit, Williams is potentially a handful of victories away from a shot at World honours.
Our very own Liam Smith holds the WBO World Title and would be the eventual aim for both fighters, alongside Ahmet Patterson who is currently position #11 with the WBO.
After picking up the WBO Intercontinental Title back at the end of March, Corcoran is sure to find himself on the cusp of joining Williams and Patterson in the rankings which could make out for an intriguing round robin trio of fights for the remainder of 2016 and beyond.
