Booth was Eubank Jr’s coach in 2015 and currently coaches the Next Generation superstar’s cousin, Harlem Eubank.
“Harlem is still training with Adam Booth so that says a lot about Booth’s personality,” Eubank told. Sun.
“Harlem is my cousin and Adam Booth knows we are close, but he still agreed to train Liam Williams against me.
“It says a lot about Adam Booth and I told Harlem that it shows Adam doesn’t care about him.
“I’m sure Harlem and Williams ran into each other at the gym.”

“He watched me criticize George Groves a lot when he was coaching Groves, so maybe he thought he got some insight from that.
“But I’m a completely different boxer than I was at the time, so Liam Williams’ move to Adam Booth was irrelevant.”
