Two undefeated middleweight fighters will square off in Riyadh as part of the Queensberry vs. Matchroom event.

Hamzah Sheeraz and Austin "Ammo" Williams each started off 2024 with a victory and now they're on a collision course.

Sheeraz was last in action in February when he earned a first-round stoppage victory over Liam Williams. That same month, Williams won by seventh-round knockout against Armel Mbumba-Yassa.

Here's everything you need to know ahead of Sheeraz vs. Williams.

What has been said?

"Brutal knockout, it will be a brutal knockout," Williams told DAZN when asked to make a prediction. 

"A good thing that my coach gave to me in this fight was Aaron Pryor, his upper body movement, Marvin Hagler, his upper body movement, the way that he comes at the guy relentlessly.

"I’m going to take the risks in this fight, I’m going to show my strengths. I know Hamzah hasn’t seen anyone like me, he hasn’t seen anyone who is going to stand up to him and push the fight, push him back, he hasn’t seen that.

"I’m excited to show that, I’m excited to show my gas tank, I’m excited to show everything that I’ve worked on my whole career, and it will be a brutal, devastating knockout."

This prediction from Williams has added to the war of words with Sheeraz with the latter claiming that he will make the American look like a 'regular fighter' on June 1.
