Sonny Bill Williams beats Liava’a on points

Rumour has it that there were more fans at the fight to see Sonny Bill with his shirt off than see him box.

All Black and Canterbury Crusaders rugby star Sonny Bill Williams has won a unanimous points decision over Tongan gospel singer Alipate Liava’a in their boxing match at Auckland’s Trusts Stadium Arena tonight.

The fight labelled ‘Fight for Canterbury’ went the scheduled six rounds with Sonny Bill Williams the dominant fighter having no trouble being ahead on the judges scorecard at the end.

Williams will be happy with the win but will be a little disappointed that he didn’t knock out the journeyman fighter who was outed during the week for claiming the sickness benefit will preparing to fight Williams.
