Francois "the White Buffalo" Botha is still seething about his last fight against Sonny Bill Williams in February that was cut short by two rounds.
The 44-year-old South African heavyweight boxer was in Tauranga today to promote his Hydr8 ZERO Explosion bout against 21-year-old New Zealander Joseph Parker in Auckland on June 13.
The bout will be held at the Trusts Stadium, Waitakere, where Botha lost a K1 kickboxing bout to former world champion Ray Sefo back in 2006.
Botha really wants to have another crack at Sonny Bill Williams after their 12-round encounter was controversially shortened to 10 rounds - just as Botha was beginning to dominate the fight.
"Joseph Parker is 10 times the boxer than ... Williams, and the good thing is that Ducco Events have given me plenty of time to train, so the Buffalo will be in good shape," Botha said.
"Experience does count for a lot and I think my experience will be a factor against baby Joseph. But I am not taking him lightly because he can box.
Sonny Bill Williams was like a walk in the park. But this time I am not going to wait because it is only eight rounds and who knows they may cut another round off me so I am going to jump on him from the beginning."
Botha also doubted Williams would turn up for the rematch set down for December.
Parker had a stellar amateur career but has only had four professional fights, which he has won easily within three rounds.
He is trained by personal trainer Lee Parore (of David Tua fame) and former middleweight world champ Maselino Masoe but is facing his biggest challenge against Botha, who has fought Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis, Evander Holyfield and Wladimir Klitschko.
