After taking-up boxing, Williams has often stated that it has made him a better, much more confident and mentally tougher sportsman.

On 27 May 2009, Williams made his debut as a professional boxer, on the undercard of close friend Anthony Mundine, and defeated Garry Gurr with a Technical knockout (TKO) in the second round in Brisbane. On 30 June 2010, he defeated Ryan Hogan in a bout that ended by TKO after only two minutes and 35 seconds. Williams described the preparation for the fight as "good off-season training" for his imminent debut for the Canterbury rugby team.

Famous quotes containing the word boxing:

    ... to paint with oil paints for the first time ... is like trying to make something exquisitely accurate and microscopically clear out of mud pies with boxing gloves on.
    Brenda Ueland (1891–1985)

    I can entertain the proposition that life is a metaphor for boxing—for one of those bouts that go on and on, round following round, jabs, missed punches, clinches, nothing determined, again the bell and again and you and your opponent so evenly matched it’s impossible not to see that your opponent is you.... Life is like boxing in many unsettling respects. But boxing is only like boxing.
    Joyce Carol Oates (b. 1938)
