LIAM WILLIAMS believes he’s an inspiratio­n to those at rock bottom... while middleweig­ht rival Chris Eubank Jnr has been gifted everything.

The Welshman takes on his bitter rival in a Cardiff clash on Saturday. Williams, 29, has risen from the smallhall shows in the Valleys to challenge for a world title in America.

And he believes Eubank Jnr has been handed bigger opportunit­ies because of his reputation and father’s achievemen­ts. “We come from very different worlds,” said Williams (below). “I didn’t have any help along the way. I started out in leisure centres with 1,500 people there – earning a grand for a fight.” TYSON FURY has called Dillian Whyte a “coward” as he waits on the Brixton bruiser to sign the contract for their WBC heavyweigh­t title clash. Fury’s promoter Frank Warren won the purse bids for the fight last week, guaranteei­ng Whyte a career-high pay day of more than £5million but he has been silent since.
