Justis Huni hails Sonny Bill Williams fight, but warns he’s ‘on a different level’


Australian boxing star Justis Huni is ready to step into the ring with Sonny Bill Williams, but only after Williams takes on Paul Gallen.

The Williams-Gallen fight has been one that’s been talked about for the better part of a decade and could finally be on the horizon after Williams easily got rid of Barry Hall last week.

Huni, who beat Gallen in 10 rounds last June, welcomed a meeting with Williams but said he was on “a different level” from the former NRL and All Blacks star.

“If he gets past Gal, he and me would be the only two to beat Gal,” Huni told Fox Sports.

“This fight would make sense. I’m on a different level, though.

“He’s been doing it for a little while now. He had fights a while ago. But it’s a different level, I’ve been doing this all my life.

“Just my experience, my speed, my boxing IQ, those things alone, I’m much more experienced in the ring and fighting in front of those big crowds.”

Huni holds a professional record of 5-0, with his next fight scheduled for May 11 against Kiki Toa Leutele.
