Barry Hall, a former Australian Football League star, was knocked out in the first round of their highly-anticipated bout, which turned out to be a complete mismatch.
Williams delivered his first powerful right hand within 30 seconds, and Hall was knocked out for what seemed to be the end of the fight, but he was able to survive the count and continue the battle.
Despite just being down for 90 seconds, Hall’s AFL premiership-winning skipper was knocked out for the third time by Williams only two minutes later, and it was game over.

Sonny Bill Williams
Williams knocked Barry out in the first round of their highly-anticipated bout, which turned out to be a complete mismatch.
The commentator said:
“He conquered rugby league, he conquered rugby union and he has conquered boxing tonight. Barry Hall is one bad dude and Sonny Bill has schooled him tonight,”
“I don’t think in Sonny Bill’s wildest dream did he see a first round stoppage.”
Triple boxing world champion Danny Green responded: “No way. I thought it would go the other way early and Barry was going to impose his will, but Sonny’s speed and size was too good.”
