Liam Williams' Net worth, Purse Money, Earnings
Sources haven't paid that much attention to Williams' net worth. For one thing, being a relatively unknown fighter, Liam's fights hinge on building a reputation before they start making big like in the case of A-listers such as Mayweather, McGregor, Nurmagomedov, and so forth.
But having fought in several high-end venues, it's plausible Williams has taken home some big compensations for all the bruises and cuts. Over the years, the Church Village-born boxer's fights have managed to gain a following of its own. And those shiny matches are more than likely to make some lucrative incentives for the boxers from sponsorships, endorsements, ticket sales, and licensing fees.
Williams has had twelve title fights to date and purses are generally higher for such bouts in part to broadcasting deals and revenues from the attendees.
