Botha alleges that the Williams camp offered him a $150,000 bribe to throw the match

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Amidst allegations of match-fixing and questions about sanctioning and a failed drug test surrounding the controversial bout between heavyweights Sonny Bill Williams and Frans Botha last Friday in Brisbane, Australia, there is a new development. Botha now claims he turned down a $150,000 bribe to take a dive in the fight. Botha told New Zealand’s “Radio LiveSport,” that the offer was made to him by Williams’ manager Khoder Nasser when the two were alone in a local park three days before the fight.

Nasser told Fairfax Media that Botha’s claims are “absolute madness,” adding that “He has to come to terms with the reality that he got his ass whipped by a guy who had had only five fights.”
