Should there be a SBW/Botha rematch?


Cries of match-fixing have cast a shadow over Sonny Bill Williams' title fight against the White Buffalo.

Doubt has been cast over the validity of Williams' victory, and on the international World Boxing Association title he won, because the sanctioning body, the WBA, may not have been contacted to approve the bout.

A clearly groggy Williams hung on to win though an angry Botha claimed he would have knocked Williams out had there been two more rounds - an estimation most fight fans would agree with, given Williams' unsteady hold on the vertical at the end of the fight.

"Its a sideshow. What purpose would a rematch serve except to line the bulging pockets of the few who profit from such farce?"

"Yes. Away from SBW hater conspiracy theorists, it was clear that SBW was winning on points from rounds 1 to 9, until the Botha's dirty tactics saw him get a sneaky haymaker in."
