  • George Liddard Underlines World Championship Ambition As He Prepares For Second Professional Bout

George Liddard underlines world championship ambition as he prepares for second professional bout

Middleweight prospect George Liddard revealed his goal is ‘to be a world champion’ as he sets sights on a second professional win this weekend.

The four-time National Champion recently made the transition to professional boxing and will be looking to stay unbeaten when he takes on Daniel Przewieslik. 

Liddard will be one of the first fighters to feature on the undercard of Jack Cullen's WBO international super-middleweight title bout with the unbeaten Diego Pacheco.

The Essex native may be opening the show at the Echo Arena in Liverpool this Saturday, though the young prospect certainly has big aspirations.

When asked about his ambition of becoming a future world champion, he told Planet Sport: "There's a lot of boxers I have to tick off along the way.

"Stepping up the rounds and winning the English titles, British titles, Commonwealth titles along the way. But definitely, my goal in this game is to be a world champion and I definitely believe I will do it."
He added: "I've come from good beginnings. I've come from a good background. I'm a really hard working, dedicated fighter.
"I've got the talent to go all the way. Hopefully land some nice devastating knockouts along the way to keep people interested. But I think people will want to watch me because I bring a very exciting style to the table."

With celebrity and influencer boxing on the rise, in-ring skill is not often enough to sell out arenas and make big money in the sport.

Liddard admitted that growing a following throughout his professional journey is also an important aspect of the job.
He said: "I think it's very important to have a good following. Obviously, they're the ones who pay tickets to come and watch you. They're your fan base.
"There's ways to go about it. Building a following in the right way and putting on impressive performances and giving the people what they want to see is important."
Fans can watch Liddard's second pro fight against Przewieslik live on DAZN this Saturday from 4pm GMT.
