Middleweight contender Liam Williams has apparently parted ways with his trainer of the last three years, Dominic Ingle.
Williams, 29-years-old, was scheduled to face domestic rival Chris Eubank Jr. this coming Saturday night, but he withdrew with an injury and the contest was rescheduled to January 29 at the Motorpoint Arena in Cardiff.
The shoulder injury, according to Williams, was initially suffered in April twelve round decision loss to WBO middleweight champion Demetrius Andrade.
Williams left the Ingle Gym last month and is currently training in London for the upcoming Eubank clash.
Ingle explains that there are no hard feelings over the split.
“We haven’t had a falling out. He said he thought he was getting a bit stale and wanted to move on. He just wants a change of scenery with what he’s doing. We have had a good relationship and three good years. We took him from being dead in the water to a world title fight," Ingle told The Star.
Promoter Ben Shalom of BOXXER is expecting Williams to arrive to the fight at 100%.
"Chris definitely felt that Liam Williams, there was something strange going on," Shalom told Sky Sports.
"We've now seen the medical reports. I think, to be honest, Liam knows this is the biggest fight of his career. It's a legacy fight for him, in Cardiff, in front of his own fans, and so he just wanted to make sure he was 100 percent ready for what will be a huge, huge fight.
"Chris maybe thinks there's something going on, but I assure you there's not. Liam Williams will 100 percent be fit for January 29. We're delighted. We didn't want to see this go on and on and on."
