Ahead of City’s 2-1 victory against Luton Town on Saturday, British Boxing Champions Joe Cordina and Liam Williams were given a tour of CCS.

Ronnie Jepson and Lee Peltier talk to Liam Williams and Joe Cordina

The pair met the club's Executive Director & CEO Ken Choo, and were shown the First Team dressing room, where they met the players as well as the management staff. Afterwards, Joe and Liam met supporters in the concourse around the ground, having pictures taken with and signing autographs for the City fans in attendance.

Just before kick-off, Joe and Liam were introduced to the supporters in the stands from pitchside and walked a lap of the pitch whilst being applauded by the crowds.

British middleweight champion Liam Williams’ most recent display earned him the WBC Silver title following his victory in the second round against Karim Achour in July, having previously defeated Joe Mullender in March. The Welshman’s record now stands at 21 wins, two defeats and a draw.
