While Williams (R) has been out of action since April

Following wins for Eubank Jr this year against Marcus Morrison and Wanik Awdijan a super-fight with Gennady Golovkin was rumoured.

But SunSport exclusively revealed that plans to fight Triple G are parked until the summer.

Instead he will take on 29-year-old Williams in a tasty all-British bout.

Next Gen has won 30 out his 32 career fights – losing only to George Groves and Billy Joe Saunders.

Williams meanwhile has won 23 out of his 27 fights – losing three and drawing one.

His most recent fight ended in defeat against WBO middleweight champ Demetrius Andrade in April.

Eubank Jr has 22 knockouts on his record compared to Williams’ 18, with the pair having a similar KO ratio.

And the son of Eubank Sr has the slender advantage when it comes to height and reach.

He stands at 5ft11in, just an inch taller than opponent Williams.

And he boasts a longer reach by three inches.

Both men are orthodox fighters when it comes to their stance, with seemingly little splitting them when it comes to the stats.

And there’s plenty at stake with the winner of the bout expected to be in line for a shot at a title when they next fight.

The packed out Motorpoint Arena should be in for a treat when the two men come to blows in less than a month’s time.
