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.
SBW vs Barry Hall TURF WAR Pay-Per-View fight on Stan Event will be available for any Stan customer to purchase for $50. Customers that are new to Stan can sign up for a 30 day free trial and then purchase the fight when available.

“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.”
