Default Botha has shed 20lbs in training for sbw fight

Supposedly he's intent on taking him out in one sided fashion and is training like it's a title fight

Prediction ?

If Botha turns up ready to fight even at his age he'l wipe the floor with Sonny in 1 rd.

depending on what he weighed before he started training for it, he may still be well over 20lbs from any reasonable condition.

he last fought at 275lbs. he could have put on 50lbs after that without training. so he could have been well over 300lbs before starting.

the 275lbs was 40lbs too much anyway.

this is Botha's last crack at the top heavies & maybe a shot at the World title so he'll leave everything in the ring to get that opportunity.

Botha to win by TKO cause you know if it goes the distance SBW will have the strap around his waist.

SBW to win by KO/TKO - no way would Nasser have set Money Bill up with an opponent who presents any sort of a threat.

thats half his beer gut gone

Botha is miles better than most guys SBW has faced and to be honest I respect Sonny for stepping up to fight someone who is known

SBW will taste the canvas but Botha runs out of steam and loses on points... maybe KO because his chin is pretty crap these days and always kinda was. Lewis and Tyson etc ruined it in his heyday

SBW ALWAYS looks great. Only behind David Haye in the HW looks department.

Physique doesnt count for squat... Corrie Sanders always looked fairly soft and was lethal

Frank Bruno was the most shredded HW i can remember and wasnt particularly amazing

They will not put him in there with a live body

Botha is a ruined fighter and is getting a nice few quid to "do the right thing"
