Is boxing really that close to WWE where the old contender agrees to do a job so that the younger guy can get a bigger push?

**** I hope not. Really, the standard of a Botha has got to be 50x more than the glorified nightclub bouncers SBW has faced.

If SBW wins it is bad for boxing no matter how the victory comes about.

SBW is more of an athlete than Botha, and thats why Khoder has set up this fight. Botha 10 fights ago would have destroyed SBW, but he's not looking too good these days.

SBW is without doubt a superior athlete, even prime for prime, but surely a five fight novice with no amateur experience is gonna be out of his depth against a 44 year old ex contender?

This is my point. If we were looking at a 5 fight pro with an amateur background I would consider it a big step up for them to fight Botha, perhaps too big. Even at his age. That's why I think this one's scripted.

you dont believe anyone has guts or is willing to take risk?

leapai took a chance and fought johnson. and also took risks against other fighters. fighters do take risks. you been following demori too much.

alex and SBW have sparred and are mates. do you think SBW would be able to look alex or the rest of the boxing community he has been involved with in the eye if this is bullshit?

Clarence Tillman I think went the distance with Lucas Browne. This is how he went against SBW.

Khoder happy,SBW happy,fat shot to shit Botha happy. People who payed for PPV went out of their way to pub/club to watch unhappy. I may be wrong,hopefully I am.

Doubt its a fix, I think Botha is too proud to get beat by a novice and he's looking lighter than vs Pianeta when he was his heaviest ever, he always talks it up but I doubt he wants to retire on a loss to some novice rugby player. Will be a great fight I reckon
Botha still has a bit of handspeed for 2 or 3 rounds, he just older and fatter I don't think he's shot
I reckon they just misjudged Botha and thought he was going to turn up like vs Pianeta

when is/was the weigh in? are there any snaps of botha currently, how does he look? if he's well out of shape i think the $1.60 about Sonny will get me a few extra cartons satdy. Also what is the rest of the card like?
