Middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr. is promising to do a lot of damage when he steps in the ring with British rival Liam Williams.

On Thursday, their showdown was officially announced for December 11, taking place at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff, and live on Sky Sports.

Eubank is apparently very upset over some of the statements that have come from Williams on social media.

Because of Williams' trash talk, Eubank has developed a genuine dislike for his upcoming opponent.

"This is a personal fight for me," Eubank told Sky Sports. "Most of the time, boxing is just business. You get in there, you fight another man and you just want to win.

"With this guy here, I genuinely don't like the man, he's said a lot of disrespectful things about me over the last few months, and it's time to make him eat those words. I definitely can't repeat the things he's said on social media, but trust me it's very hard to stay calm with the things he's been saying. Now I have a good opportunity to go into that ring and make him pay."

Williams is coming back from a twelve round decision loss to current WBO world champion Demetrius Andrade.

Next month, the arena will be packed with plenty of his fans in support - but Eubank is not worried about a hostile environment.

"I'm no stranger to going into the lion's den," Eubank said. "I've been booed into arenas many times before.

"It doesn't affect me. If anything, it makes me fight harder, if the crowd is against me. Not to say that I'm hoping they are. I hope that I receive a warm welcome. But either way, I'm going to go in there and get the job done."
