Additional information

VOW TO FATHER
"I promised my dad on his deathbed that I would one day become a world champion - this isn’t quite there yet, but it’s a step in the right direction," said WILSON after he qualified in the 64kg category for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games. (Caboolture News, 15 Nov 2017)


VERSATILE
His coach, Ben HARRINGTON, has high hopes for WILSON. "Most boxers have a weakness, but Liam is the complete package... he can box orthodox, he can box southpaw, there is nothing he can't do. Boxers like him are like unicorns, they don't exist." (gc2018.com, 12 Jan 2018)
