Stan director of sport Ben Kimber said: “If there was ever any doubt that cross-code champion Sonny Bill Williams is box office, he blew that away when he launched Stan Event in style by defeating Barry Hall earlier this year.

“Now Sonny will step up again and face one of the country’s most dangerous knockout artists on Stan Event. Mark Hunt has taken on the best in the world and shown the power and determination to finish on top, and now he has a chance to stop a rising boxing superstar in his tracks.”
