The “King of the offload”, Sonny Bill Williams will get back in the ring to face the former Australian soccer player Barry Hall, according to media from the country of the Wallabies. Although the date was not disclosed, it was anticipated that it will be before the end of the year and there will be a succulent sum of money for both if they manage to reach the end of the fight.
Williams’ manager Khoder Nasser and Hall’s manager Danny Green reached an agreement for the fight to take place this year. It was learned that both Williams and Hall would receive $ 1,400,000 each if the fight were to end. Hall has now taken the first step forward by declaring that “he has what it takes” to end Williams’ seven-game winning streak in the ring.
“I have nothing but respect for him. But in saying that, I think I have the tools to take him down, “Hall told The Age, adding,” It’s a great fight, a lot of people will be interested. We saw his last fight and it’s good for someone who hasn’t boxed that much. He obviously has great talent and is a great athlete. He’s got hitting power and he’s in shape, that’s half the fight for a heavyweight. It has many tools. I saw the fight and thought ‘yes, it’s fine, I have what it takes to beat him’. We’ll see soon, “Hall challenged.
Australian boxing legend Green revealed earlier this week that the fight could take place at Bankwest Stadium in western Sydney, assuming that the number of active coronavirus cases allows people to attend the event.
Hall has not fought since his draw with Gallen in November, while Williams’ last was in the 2015 unanimous decision victory over Chancey Welliver in Sydney. Williams wrestled Stu Laundy at a charity event in November 2018, but the match was not recognized as professional.
