Back in October, Williams told GQ that he wanted a fight with Gallagher similar to the KSI-Logan Paul fight that was also arranged and promoted by Hearn:
"I'd love it. But I'd want it to be a professional fight. I've seen how much KSI and Logan Paul made from theirs and I think we could trounce that."
"But, yeah, I think last time in the Noughties Liam wanted to go down to an abandoned railway track or something. I don't want to do that. It's got to be f****** whistles and bells if it happens."
The 'Angels'-singer wasn't just talking though with him supposedly reaching out to Eddie Hearn about the potential fight. According to the Mirror, Williams has said that Hearn is interested in promoting the fight but Gallagher hasn't responded yet.
"In their world - this is really, really important." :earth_africa:

The two Singers were good friends in the Nineties until they had a bitter falling-out. Williams has called the former Oasis Singer out a couple times before, including a recent interview with the Sun in which he said that Gallagher is a 'school bully'.
"I admire [Gallagher]. He is the voice of a generation, the last of a dying breed, as pop stars are so boring these days," he said.
"But I still want to fight him. He represents a school bully to me and I would like to take the bully down."
Eddie Hearn was the lead Promoter for the professional fight between YouTube stars, KSI and Logan Paul. Hearn is also known for being the co-owner of sports promotion company, Matchroom Sport, as well as him becoming viral with 'No-Context Hearn'.
