Sonny to be Buffalo's bunny

Coming from a stoked Chiefs supporter, Sonny Bills done awesome for the Waikato region, and NZ rugby as a whole.  But seriously, boxing is a totally different buzz.  His last fight was against a fat dude who talked smack but couldn't punch, (and admittedly, Sonny did look pretty good and threw a few fast solid shots to win it by KO), and his fight before that was against a midget wannabe musician who was being done for welfare fraud.  And Sonny didn't even knock him out.  Or hurt him even slightly.  The 'NZ Heavyweight belt' that he won is thirty years old and has only been fought for on 4 occasions (twice in the early '80s), it's not the real NZ heavyweight champion belt at all (Cameron and Tua both completely ignored it because it was pointless to own).  And now he steps into the ring with someone who has had 20 years of ring experience, fought world champions regularly, and has only lost 7 times in over 50 bouts!  Botha's only weakness is his age, and that won't count for much if he's still fit enough.  Seriously, Sonny Bill has bitten off far too much this time, and will get utterly pulverised.  Don't forget, NO-ONE HAS EVEN PUNCHED SONNY IN THE RING YET!!!  None of his 'opponents' did anything but avoid him.  He's never taken a punch, no-one knows what his chins like, and he could collapse like a house of cards if Botha gets a good hit in.  Which he will.  Probably around 30 seconds into round 1. 

Sonny, you're 3 years away from even being ring savvy enough to compete with dudes like this!  Botha is a true boxing soldier, never the best in the world, but still very dangerous and totally experienced.  The White Buffalo will massacre him without raising a sweat.
