Botha: $150k to throw SBW fight
Wed, 13 Feb 2013 8:11a.m.
The fallout from the Francois Botha and Sonny Bill Williams bout continues with a claim from the veteran South African boxer Botha that he was approached with a bribe to throw the fight.
Botha insists he's passed a second doping test in Cape Town but he's now claiming he was offered $150, 000 to throw the fight.
He says the offer was made by the fight’s promoter Khoder Nasser three days before last Friday’s fight.
“As I stopped at the park my cellphone was being confiscated and I was being walked, and during this walk was my offer to throw the fight,” Botha told LiveSPORT Radio.
He says he refused the offer.
Botha went the distance with the former All Black but lost by way of unanimous decision, Williams claiming the WBA International Heavyweight title.
