Sonny Bill Williams to fight Mike Tyson

Recommended Posts

It has been reported in the media that $onny Bill Williams will fight Iron Mike Tyson for 1-3 million.

Apparently he has a clause in his contract to allow him to Box in the off season and Toronto have given the fight its blessing.

Good luck Sonny, there is a recent clip of Tyson hitting the training pads and he looked like he can still move.

It’ll be good publicity for rugby league and Toronto Wolfpack in North America if nothing else 

Unless , as Jeff Fenech says , he gets ‘put in the morgue ! ‘

An overage Botha gave Williams a lesson too. Cw9 publicity stunts even if it was true

Get as much publicity out of this as you possibly can, Rugby League because it simply isn't happening.

Nobody in their right mind let's Tyson get back in there. He was gone 15 years ago. It is OK looking good on the bags and pads but there are OAPs who look good on the bags and pads too.

People who say Tyson will destroy SBW are wrong and are only saying it because it is Mike Tyson. 

Sport doesn't have or need to see this.

Yeah I’d put this with the talk about Eubank and Benn fighting again that was talked about earlier this year. I loved watching them in their prime but apart from the car crash value this really is something I don’t need to see.

I think Miriam Margolyes v  Brenda from Bristol would've been more interesting.

It definitely won't happen. If it did I'm of the opinion that Sonny Bill wouldn't be playing rugby for quite some time. And that goes for any other rugby player. They'd get pummelled. The speed and power demonstrated by Tyson for a 53 year old was amazing. But he hasn't been hit back yet, for me that's the big question. In any case he only wants to do exhibitions. I don't think Fury or Joshua will be overly concerned. But yes I'd love to see him in action again, but that's just me being a massive Mike Tyson fan,seeing him in his pomp and where he ended up was really sad. For me he would've been the greatest boxer ever if he could've kept his head straight.

A very below average fighter at his best Kevin McBride KO Tyson in his last fight

Apart from them wanting to make some money .... what's the point ?

Who really would be interested ?

It's like when Muhammad Ali fought that Japanese wrestler .... a waste of time.

However, it might be interesting to have a rematch ... and get Tyson playing a game for TWP !

You must be joking.. ?

The old man would not make it through her first round...all Sonny Bill has to do is get out of the first minute or two and the match would be his over the dinosaur....simple.

Very good boxer, Fenech.  Underestimated, probably as most fights were in Oz.

This would probably be the most anticipated match up since Rocky Balboa took on Thunderlips.
