Promoter Eddie Hearn Has Revealed That Felix Cash vs Ammo Williams Will Take Place In The UK
Eddie Hearn indicated to the Matchroom Boxing YouTube channel during the Warrington Lopez press conference that the bout between unbeaten fighters, Britain’s Felix Cash (15-0, 10 KOs) and the United States’ Ammo Williams (12-0, 9 KOs) will take place in the UK.
Hearn has confirmed that the bout is now signed and it would be an eliminator for the WBA world middleweight title. A fight like this would make the most sense on the undercard of another Britain vs American clash such as Canelo Ryder where it could also strengthen a DAZN PPV.
The American is ranked #5 in the world with the WBA and holds their international scalp. Cash is a former British and Commonwealth champion, mandatory for the European belt and ranked in three separate governing bodies (WBO #4, IBF #9, WBA #14).
On his Instagram live last week, Hearn stated that “Both guys have agreed to that fight (Felix Cash vs Ammo Williams) in principle” and later in the week confirmed it was a done deal, now it appears both men have put pen to paper.
Cash vs Williams will see two unbeaten top 15 middleweight contenders battle in a mouth-watering, transatlantic 50-50 clash that would put the winner within touching distance of a world title shot.
Williams has been the more active of the two recently and returned for the fourth time this year last Saturday on the Estrada Chocolatito 3 undercard in Phoenix comfortably outpointing unbeaten Simon Madsen (13-0, 10 KOs).
Cash fights for the fourth time in 3 years in Leeds this Saturday against Portugal’s Celso Neves (9-2-2) on the undercard of Josh Warrington vs Luis Alberto Lopez.
