Yeah I called that it sounded to me like SBW was in a bit of trouble when Tony deserted him. I reckon Alex will make short work of Botha, Alex is 1000x greater than SBW.

SBW is a bit of a mug, Botha should have just waited for the opportunity and land on him. Pianeta is vastly underrated here I believe he was way to slick and had too much length for Botha. The man isn't a can, he's pretty accurate and has good defensive capabilities. He actually made Botha look worse than he is, Botha would have had Tillman out quicker than SBW did that's for sure.
LoL away. It makes perfect sense and I'm not interested in debating a fight that's not even happening now with an argumentative little **** like you. The only pathetic plan was when your parents decided to root without a rubber for the first and only time 16 years ago

Why would a seasoned professional like Botha fight like a mug and risk getting down troued by the likes of SBW. SBW is completely hittable without needing to bull rush him.

*NZ papers are saying its minor and he still is traveling to OZ and will fight. He reckon's he wont miss a rugby game either. I reckon he'll be good enough to play rugby but wont fight. When he fought the 44 yo sickness beneficiary he was good enough to box but couldn't play rugby!

whats the ****en difference between this and a lol?

How high do you rank SBW anyway, I put him just below prime Hoppa level at this stage of his career.

An MRI shows SBW has a slight tear in his shoulder from the match last night >>>

He does have nearly a month til the Botha fight. But this has to be a set-back.

Leapai is absolutely rubbish as well mate. No boxing skills whatsoever and no gas tank after round 3. If neither Botha or him land flush early I envisage two obese men hugging each other for 7 of the 10 rds with the sound of boos deafening around the half filled arena.

Alex Leapai was so short of gas he was running on the fumes. But remained as dangerous as hell as Travis Walker will attest.

Yep Leapai fat and out of shape, zero boxing skills, completely gassed early in the fight and needs a ridiculous home town ref to get him the win.

when r u going to realise that alex only has stamina issues when he is in a war of a fight?

its not lack of fitness, its from copping too much punishment.

I hadn't seen that before. Referee should be ashamed of himself.

Rubbish,in that video which is from 2 years ago, he's not even in decent shape, it was only in round 4, he needs to sort his defense fast.

Fights been rescheduled for February, what a joke bet it still doesn't happen.

Does that change anybody's opinion on the fight?

I think theres more to it then just the shoulder injury without the winning combination with Mundine srn in his corner will effect SBW mind set going into this fight against way past it but still dangerous Botha..Could be a other reason the fights off..just a thought..
