Sonny Bill Williams Puts Career at Stake With Botha

By Liam Napier

Sonny Bill Williams has revealed that he will quit boxing if he gets knocked out by Francois Botha.

After just five professional fights, Williams' quest for boxing credibility reaches a crossroads when he takes on the South African in Brisbane on February 8.

A veteran of 60 pro fights and having been in the ring with Mike Tyson, Lennox Lewis and Evander Holyfield, Botha is a risky opponent for Williams at this stage of his fledgling career.

Victory against Botha would boost his boxing profile internationally but the dual-code superstar revealed that defeat will see him throw in the towel and concentrate on his return to the NRL with the Sydney Roosters next month and his long-term footballing career.

"If I get knocked out then that will probably be the end," Williams said yesterday.

"Right now I can see myself doing boxing fulltime in the future, but for that to come to fruition I need to fight guys like this and beat them, otherwise it's a waste of time.

"If this doesn't go too well I could just stay in one sport.

"If I lose this fight I will definitely be upset because I know it will probably be the end of it.

"And if I win, then it opens doors."

Here's hoping old man Frans has a big right hand left in him. Knock this clown out Botha!
