Sonny Bill Williams Has Finally Agreed To Fight Paul Gallen

Sonny Bill Williams Has Finally Agreed To Fight Paul Gallen

Sonny Bill Williams isn't finished with boxing - or Paul Gallen for that matter.

The cross-code megastar has finally responded to Gallen's relentless call-outs, declaring that he will "100 percent" step into the ring to fight the rugby league legend.

Speaking on Nine's '100% Footy', SBW suggested the two could face off in the "next six months" in a blockbuster bout that would undoubtedly draw huge numbers of both avid fight fans and footy die-hards.

Williams was asked by Gallen - who was on the show as a panelist - if he was ready to go toe-to-toe in the ring, to which SBW responded: "100 per cent".

"To be fair I understand your frustrations and that you're coming out and saying what you need to say. I'm comfortable in my own skin and I've been around for a while now, bro," he said.

"I'm definitely not scared to get in the ring with you, I'm definitely not running. I'm actually excited to get in the ring with you and it's going to happen.

"I've already agreed with Barry (Hall) to get in the ring with him because my understanding was that you were fighting the legend (Mark Hunt). So for you, instead of worrying about me you should be worried about that brother because he can throw them my bro."

The Sydney Roosters Are Closing In On A Deal For Sonny Bill Williams

published at6 months ago

Williams - along with a host of other high-profile stars - had his $10million contract with the Toronto Wolfpack thrown into limbo after the Canadian club announced they were withdrawing from the Super League for the remainder of the season.

But while the Roosters were quick to snap up the services of their former employee, another NRL associate has been tapping up SBW in a bid to get his attention.

After calling out Williams a number of times, former Cronulla Sharks and New South Wales skipper Gallen appears to have had his prayers finally answered by the 35-year-old - although a third coming in the NRL is first up on the agenda for the Kiwi ace.

"What this opportunity has allowed me to realise is I still have that passion and drive to still be successful as a professional sportsman," Williams said.

"I feel like I've got a couple of things I want to achieve, whether that be on the field or in the ring, time will tell. But for myself firstly it's about putting my best foot forward with the Roosters lads, getting the body right, trying to crack that 17.

"Next year I'm still contracted to Toronto but it's a really volatile situation at the moment, things change from day to day, so I just have to say, god willing, it all works out and I'm sure it will.

"Time will tell but I know I still have that fire and determination within to try and do a few more things."
