Great matchup.
In 45 pro k/boxing fights and 25 pro boxing fights Briggs has never been knocked out cold, he has been dropped a few times in boxing but all late in the fights because of conditioning.
He came out of the same womb at the same time as Paul Briggs why would he have a weaker chin, he turned up fit against Wilson in his last fight and was never hurt in 12 rds.

Sol in the gym is the best Heavyweight in Australia but he has yet to show that in the ring yet, his next fight with Wilson will show if he can take it from the gym to the ring.

Botha isn't the same fighter he used to be, I think Leapai, Haumona, Briggs and Demori would give him a run, he doesn't take a punch the same as he used to either all of our guys are young and hungry, Botha is setting up his retirement fund.

Why would any decent fighter fight for the WBF shit belt. Its a disgrace of an organisation and a real blemish on the sport.

ur on the money, botha reading on reports he isn't the same,overweight,doesn't pack the punching power he once had & his last fight was slow sloppy with the ref boiling over both of them holding constantly in each round also he has lost 4 times via KO in K1 from right overhangs,could be advantage to our boys to use the right or left overhangs if connected well to the temple i think haumono does the overhangs i'm sure of it

JOE COOL thats 110% right,if they've trained hard for it & win it doesn't matter the organization then they deserve it

Those big overhangs to the head sure can be devastating.

True, but sneaky upperpunts can be quite effective as well.
