Middleweight contender Chris Eubank Jr. is not concerned with the hostile environment that awaits him on December 11, when he faces domestic rival Liam Williams.

Eubank will face Williams at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.

Promoter Ben Shalom of BOXXER is expecting a sellout crowd with a significant amount of tickets already sold for the grudge match.

"Full credit must go to both fighters for taking on such a big fight. Eubank is going into the dragon's den here to face Williams on his home soil in Wales and the atmosphere in the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff is going to be unbelievable," Shalom told Sky Sports.

"The bitterness between the fighters, the rivalry between England and Wales, the location, the fighters' styles - this has got all the ingredients to be an all-time classic. We said this was the domestic fight of the year, and as soon as tickets went on sale at midday, it was clear the British public agreed with us. Thousands of tickets were sold in the first hour - the first thousand were sold in just five minutes - this will be a sold-out arena on December 11 in Cardiff."

Eubank previously explained that a hostile arena will only make him fight harder to turn back Williams.

"I'm no stranger to going into the lion's den," Eubank told Sky Sports. "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."
