SONNY Bill Williams may be a revered All Blacks rugby hero and icon, but South Africa’s “Great White Buffalo” Francois Botha is confident of reducing him to a whimpering wreck when they meet in the boxing ring over 10 rounds in Brisbane, on November 24. There is validation in that last comment. Botha has been around the ring in the boxing world, making his professional debut in 1990. He claimed the IBF World Heavyweight crown in 1995 and has traded blows with the likes of Mike Tyson, Shannon Briggs, Axel Schultz, Evander Holyfield, Michael Moorer, Lennox Lewis and Wladimar Klitschko. To date, he has logged up 363 rounds of boxing in the paid ranks and expects to give Williams a boxing lesson.
