Sonny Bill Williams makes shock call on retirement as he slams ex-player

Sonny Bill Williams has confirmed that he is not retiring from boxing any time soon as he said he would be open to fighting fellow former NRL legend Paul Gallen whilst slamming the former Cronulla Sharks skipper.

He said he is “the narcissistic type of man” and wouldn’t fit in his circle.

The news that Williams isn’t retiring also comes as a bit of a shock with plenty of speculation that he could.

‘With that guy, I can’t really stand him, the narcissistic type of man,’ Williams explained to the Herald.

‘For me, those types of guys aren’t in my circle. It’s not that I don’t respect what he has done in the sport, but as a man, I wouldn’t ever say we would be friends or let a guy like that in my circle.

‘Am I willing to give him a hiding and make some money off it? Of course. But he’s retired, so good on him. He’s done well, he has come out and said he has made all this money and whatever it is, so good on him.’

That said, Williams was adamant he didn’t need Gallen:

‘It’s not as simple as that. I don’t need him. I have my Creator, I don’t need anyone,’ he said.

‘What I’m saying is nothing is off the table when it comes to this space. Any good plan, you’ve got to be versatile in your thinking, you can’t be set in stone. What I would say is I don’t need any of these guys.

‘I am my own man, I wake up and the first thing I do is put my head on the ground and say thank you to my Creator for everything I’ve done and have. I’m my own man, I’m not chasing anyone or any fights. I’m just saying part of my journey and growth is getting back into the ring.’
