Money Bill Williams beats Old man Botha
February 8, 2013 in Uncategorized
So the fight we have all been waiting for is over. And as exciting as that sound, the fight was not. The fight represented an old man with a big mouth fighting a young talentless big mount…and to make matters worst, the fight was cut from twelve rounds to ten…and just as the fight was getting better.
Quick summary: Sonny Bill was much quicker than the old Buffalo and it was always going to be his match if he could hold out for twelve rounds, i mean, shortened ten round fight. The White Buffalo showed he might be slower than his younger challenger but had some tricks up his sleeve, especially towards the end. The fight did not live up to its hype, bar the 8th, 9th and 10th round.
I was shocked when the ref called the tenth round the final round as it had been advertised as twelve rounds. As SBW had been struggling in the last round i immediately thought match fixing (dam you Lance, i cant trust sport anymore).
The final round SBW was out on his feet, just hanging on to Botha. It was sad to see, one, because i wanted WB to knock SBW out and two, i thought it could happen if SBW would just stop hugging Botha. If the round went two more the fight would have belonged to the White Buffalo but would, should and could does not really count. So Sonny Bill is now thinking he can take on the world…
His next opponents will be a lot younger than the 44 year old South African. Probably from the State or the UK. I can not see the Klitschko Brothers from Ukrain even getting out of bed to fight this guy.
