Hall’s vicious taunt for ‘Sonny Boy’ Williams
Barry Hall intends to “finish” Sonny Bill Williams’ boxing career as the AFL legend threw the first trash talk haymaker ahead of their March 23 fight in Sydney.
While Williams has a perfect 8-0 record in the ring, Hall is drawing huge confidence from his one and only professional fight – a gutsy 2019 draw against Paul Gallen.
Gallen’s subsequent success as a boxer makes that achievement all the more impressive in hindsight.

“I showed against Paul Gallen that I can go the distance and go hard,” Hall said, as the ‘Turf War’ bout was confirmed for ICC Sydney and Stan Event.
“Sonny is a hugely talented individual but has not ever faced anyone of my size or skill. The lad has had everything laid on a silver platter in his boxing career to date.
“Sonny Boy has made a mistake in taking this fight, I intend to finish his boxing career and open up bigger fight opportunities for myself.”

The fight details come as Stan announced an expansion to its sports coverage with the addition of Stan Event, a new pay-per-view proposition.
The fighters will go toe-to-toe over 10 three minute rounds and will also feature a stacked undercard with at least five professional bouts in the lead up to the highly anticipated main event.
“Turf War presents an incredible match up of two ultra determined athletes who have proven themselves in the boxing ring,” promoter and former world champion Danny Green said.

“It will be a spectacle not to be missed when these two behemoths square up on Stan’s brand new pay-per-view offering.
“A win will open up huge opportunities for one of these guys.”
The Wednesday night fight is set for the Aware Super Theatre at Sydney’s International Convention Centre.
