Yeah. I'd say he's done great with what he has. Don't think the Klits are losing sleep, though.

Round 5

Williams is jabbing from a distance and clinching whenever Botha falls in with a right hand. Williams is lightly peppering Botha's gloves with his jab, just measuring. Lots of hugging as Botha increases his pressure and output (slightly) but not his connect rate. Botha loses his gum shield. Time out to replace it. Time in. Williams dances around Botha, showing his comparative agility. Botha jabs up high and tries to sling in a right. Williams circumvents him to avoid a corner, jabbing, and drops a right cross between Botha's eyes. Several lead rights by Williams while circling.

10-9 Williams

50-45 Williams

Really? I got it SBW 4-1. Botha was better in round 5 but looks out of gas and has no power.

There isn't even an argument for Botha taking one so far. He's done nothing.

I had very low expectations, but to me he looks very good.

Round 6

Williams is dancing around and jabbing comfortably as Botha slowly tanks along toward him. Finally a clubbing right over the top from Botha catches Williams on the crest of the skull. Williams blinks it off and keeps moving. Jabs by Williams. Botha moves in. Clinch. Williams stretches out his right arm to push off but retracts before actually touching down on him. Very tight and nervous stance by Williams. He attempts a clinch but gets cracked by a short right hand to the jaw as Botha anticipates the grab.

10-9 Botha

59-55 Williams

The Buffalo still didn't really do much in the 6th, but he got SBW's attention with his power a couple of times and Williams largely coasted and didn't score as many of his jabs as in 1-5.

A little from column A; a little from column B.

Don't forget Botha just fought Francesco Pianeta, two fights ago for Pianeta and Botha went the distance.

Pianeta is gonna fight W. Klitschko for the undisputed Heavyweight Championship of the World

Round 7

Williams is jabbing and moving, clinching when Botha rushes in. Botha is getting closer with jabs and stone-skipping rights. Williams is taking a lot across the shoulders and neck but keeping his chin out of harm's way using head turns and putting his gloves up to deflect. Williams now slices in a right hand and gains confidence, opening up on Botha after spinning him to the ropes. Botha isn't impressed, beckoning Williams in for more. Williams moves out of range and Botha follows with a diving right hand. Clinch. They trade jabs in the pocket. Williams ducks back from a Botha right hand feint.

10-9 Williams

69-64 Williams

Concern on Anthony Mundine's face. (below the ring apron)

Not so much on SBW's.
