GARY CORCORAN TARGETS LIAM WILLIAMS SHOWDOWN‏

Wembley’s super-welterweight star Gary Corcoran wants to take on British and Commonwealth Champion Liam Williams once he has dealt with Bristol’s Danny Butler.

Corcoran headlines Friday’s action-packed show at Bethnal Green’s York Hall where he takes on English Champion Butler for the Vacant WBO Intercontinental Junior-Middleweight Championship.

“I always take things one fight at a time and I’m fully focused on beating Danny Butler. I have a lot of respect for Danny and I’m expecting a tough fight from him,” said Corcoran.

“Saying that, I know I can beat him comfortably. Peter Stanley has come up with an air-tight game plan and I’m fully expecting to come away with another win. Once Danny is out the way I can start looking forward,” Corcoran added.

Known as the ‘Hell Raiser’ for his ferocious fighting style, Corcoran has ripped through his first 14 opponents; claiming 6 knockouts along the way. The unbeaten 25 year-old wants to take out as many rivals as possible on his journey to a world title; starting with Liam Williams.

He said: “The super-welterweight division is bursting with talent and there’s a lot of exciting fights to be made. After I’ve dealt with Danny I want to go for Liam Williams. That would be a massive fight and I’m confident I could beat him. I’ve got the ability to box him or fight him, when I fight him I’ll know what to do.”

Red-hot Corcoran says he’s taken a lot of confidence from inflicting defeats on the previously unbeaten Rick Skelton and Rick Godding last year and is aiming to kick-off 2016 by claiming another scalp. The natural-born scrapper is chomping at the bit to get back in the ring.

He said: “I’ve been waiting a long time for this fight now and I’m buzzing to get back out there. It’s been frustrating having to wait this long but I’ve kept myself in top condition in the gym. I’ll be looking to make a big statement on Friday. I’ll have a lot of family and friends there supporting me and I’ll make sure I send them home happy.”
