Sonny Bill Williams Vs Frans Botha – 8th February

When you look at these 2 in the flesh it looks very much like a bit of a mis-match with Williams looking like a ripped up tank whilst Botha looks like an old aged hill billy whos a bit ropey around the edges.

Dont let that sway you too much as the gulf in experience between these 2 is fairly considerable. Botha although well past his best, has been in with the best and knows his way around the ring, i dont see any new tricks Williams can bring that Botha hasnt seen before and Botha can still box.

Williams has only had 5 professional fights and is an NZ rugby star turned boxer, he has faced inexperienced opposition to date but Botha is he first named fighter, i think Bothas experience will show in this fight providing he doesnt get caught with some huge shot from the “tank”.

The method market for this fight seems to differ immensely, ive noticed Betvictor offering 9/2 for a Botha KO/TKO, thats really generous considering the closest you will find at others is 5/2, Botha to get the decision is 5/1 at Bet365 also and with Botha at 6/5 for the straight play extra value can be found by straddling the method market.

ATR’s Bet – £20 on Botha by KO/TKO 9/2 Betvictor, £20 on Botha Decision 5/1 Bet365.

It probably wont hurt to cover your investment with £2 on the draw at 28/1 either.

Betvictor have an offer of bet £25 and get £25 free for new customers so well worth doing on this play as the play on the KO/TKO is effectively free.
