Just watched the 'fight' again. There's corruption at it's finest. Crime commission needs to take a long hard look at that dodgy agent Nasser.

Dude is an behind clown along with SBW

Chooks wooden spooners...

All what Mundine, Nasser and co do is trick the public. Thats all they have done, tricked the public. They get the public to hate them, knowing that it will create huge interest so they come to watch Mundine, SBW and co get knocked out. Thats all they do, and the public keep falling for it.

I said here before, i have dealt with one of the above on a business level before and the guy is a complete #$(&#($&(#$&.........

I was the wholesale broker and what he did to his advisor was #$(*#(*......That guy is going to get some severe karma coming his way.

Nasser and Mundine don't trick the public, they are natural a$$holes. It ain't a show, yo.

But they're getting paid well by fools and idiots, so what do they care.

And yes, the fight was dodgy.  Most think it was Mundine who changed it to 10 rounds after the 9th Round.  Williams most likely would have been knocked out in the 11th or 12th Rounds.  But, if Botha was so bloody good, or at least capable of doing the job, he should have done better the first nine rounds.  He was getting killed on the cards.

All-in-all, you get what you see with events like this, pure entertainment.  Having Quade on the undercard just stresses this.

Having said that, Williams and Cooper are fantastic athletes, boxing skills aside.  No dodgy fight or shady goings-on can disprove that.

Francois Botha says he was offered $A150,000 to throw his controversial heavyweight boxing fight against New Zealander Sonny Bill Williams.

South African veteran Botha said Williams' manager Khoder Nasser had offered him the sum in a Brisbane park on Tuesday last week, three days before the supposed World Boxing Association (WBA) title fight which Williams won on points.

Botha, 44, told New Zealand's Radio LiveSport from Durban that he received a phone call from Nasser asking him to be picked up but to be alone.

"I wasn't told where I was going. As we stopped at a park, my cellphone was confiscated and was given to a guy in the car," Botha said.

"Then I was being walked (by Nasser), and during this walk, I was offered $150,000 to throw the fight.

"I just said `no, I can't do it'."

Botha confided in a close friend when he returned to his hotel and they decided then to take the matter no further.

"He could clearly see I was very upset. He told me `Francois, if you are even thinking about doing this, I'm going to get on the plane and go back to South Africa'."

The fight has been mired in controversy, most notably over the length of the fight, which was completed after 10 rounds.

Both sides have disputed what they understood the length of the fight should be, with Botha still adamant he had prepared for a 12-round affair.

He finished strongly and says another two rounds would have been enough to secure victory over tiring former All Black Williams.

The South African is also dismayed by reports he had failed a pre-fight drug test, which reportedly revealed the presence of a banned stimulant.

Nasser said the testing process was credible, which Botha disputes.

He said he had been drug tested upon return to South Africa and the results were "all clear".

Doubts have also been raised about whether the WBA actually sanctioned the bout, and if Williams' claim on the title is legitimate.

There was no WBA official present in Brisbane for the fight.

Is Botha telling the truth or is he mudslinging to get after Nasser and Mundine for shortening the fight?
