I didn't know Botha was a Brisbane boy lol

In NZ SBW IS AT 1.33 AND Botha is 3 bucks

Big ups to SBW for taking a huge risk

The weigh in will tell you what you need to know.

If botha takes this seriously and comes in decent shape then he will get a popular win.

If he turns up 280 with santa clause gut then he's just there to fall over and collect his cheque.

He has plenty of time to train, so no reason he can't be in shape if he really wants the win

South Africa & NZ were initially in the works. Khoder eventually decided dizzy Brissy was the goer.

I've got SBW easily for this one. Botha was very slow and hittable against Pianeta, who didnt impress me either. SBW on points becuase of fitness of late TKO. I'm getting on that $3 for sure.

I say all of this without thinking much of SBW as a boxer, Botha is just faded.

SBW is gonna retire Botha, he was being molded into a heavyweight Mundine.

you lot are all clearly re****ed.

this has nothing to do with who is the better boxer. it has to do with the fact that sbw is the goose laying the golden egg and botha is the desperate man needing a cheque...throw khoder nasser in the middle and it results in a W next to sonnys name on boxrec.

if this was just about boxing, frans botha would make sbw look silly, i dont care how shot he is.

I think you'd probably get better odds on Botha in South Africa also, unless he's in poorer condition than we'd expect and the oddsmakers know it.

Khoder is not stupid...he's lost his main meal ticket and his relevance is slipping (hopefully!), so he wont be risking SBW unless he's confident Botha's a soft touch. And Botha's best days where eons ago...he's an opponent now- he knows which side his bread is buttered on.

SBW by some sloppy stoppage.

lol.

er, no. betting doesnt work that way...slight variances may differ from country to country but the web kinda changed that and brought everything into line.

sonny bill certainly isnt 1.33 in nz, saying that with kiwi's. anything is ****ing possible

for those of you on here who know boxing, can Sonny really fight? is he a genuine boxer? i know Botha's gettin on in age, and im not sure what type of shape he's in, but his resume is pretty impressive.
