3 NOVEMBER, 2022 – In preparation for Saturday's highly anticipated heavyweight clash, dual rugby international superstar Sonny Bill Williams and MMA legend Mark Hunt will weigh-in at 12pm AEDT tomorrow (Friday) at the Aware Super Theatre, ICC Sydney.
Sonny Bill Williams and Mark Hunt will join renowned sports commentator Andy Raymond and four-time world champion Danny Green at the weigh-ins tomorrow, alongside undercard fighter Tevita Pangai Jnr.
At today's press conference, Sonny Bill Williams and Mark Hunt argued their case and were passionate in their belief of victory come Saturday night. In their respective corners, undercard fighter Tevita Pangai Jnr and boxing legend David Tua threw their support behind the two elite athletes.
Sonny Bill Williams said:
"There's a saying in boxing that your power is the last thing to go.
I grew up watching Mark Hunt and Ray Sefo and those were the guys you tried to emulate at school. Not getting into fights every day but the David Tua, Mark Hunt left hook, walk-off knockout.
God willing that doesn't happen on Saturday night. It's exciting, it's daunting, there's anxiety - all of it.."
Mark Hunt said:
"Sonny hasn't faced anyone as tough as I am. He's used to the big stage and the bright lights but fighting is different. We all know that. I've been fighting since I came out of the womb. It's a special occasion for me to be hopefully hanging up the gloves.
I'm thankful that it's Sonny Bill. He's a phenomenal athlete but he'll have to earn my respect in the ring. I've got a lot left I'd say and hopefully I've got one on the weekend."
