British and commonwealth super welterweight champion Liam Williams visited us today at Tonypandy community college. He surprised students with his belts and posed for many photos with our keen students.
Liam from Clydach vale attended Tonypandy comprehensive and was taught by Luisa Martin Thomas and Jayne Capel who were delighted to welcome him back.
Liam defended his titles last Saturday against Gary Corcoran to a packed out audience at Cardiff ice arena and live on box nation. The fight lasted 11 rounds and was stopped through a technical knock out. Liam simply outclassed his rival. Assistant headteacher Luisa Martin Thomas who watched the match said ‘it was a privilege to watch an ex pupil achieve so much, what a role model for others, a true champion’.
