Funnily enough I know a lot of guys in those 1996/1997 Auckland West teams, same place and era as well....

Funny how they only keep a record of the Roller Mills, it's under-53kg right (or was)? You'd think most of the kids these days would be coming through the open weight stuff...
I see it's now 55kg...and I think back in the old days it was 8 stone which is more like 51kg.

Still, most 11-12 year old gun rugby players these days would struggle to make that!

Sonny has no idea what he's in for. They might think they do. But Sonny is a weekend warrior, Frans Botha is a seasoned professional, even at 44.
Botha had two fights last year (2012). He lost a UD over 10 rounds in September, and a tko in the 11th, in March. He went 12 rounds with Michael Grant in November 2011. He went eight rounds with Holyfield, April 2010. Botha is going to punch Sonny so hard in the liver we'll be able to see it coming up in his mouth.

From the brief snippet I saw on the news of the weigh-in, Botha looks pretty fit, not carrying as much of a gut as I expected he would be...but it looked like a massive height difference although this pic doesn't look too bad:

You need to ask yourself those questions. Only you have those answers.
