Well over-the-hill, Botha, in his most recent outing, was stopped in two rounds last summer by an opponent with a modest 5-0 record.
One of South Africa's many gems once upon a time, Botha has dropped five in a row and 6 of his last 7.
Who is Andrzej Wawrzyk?
The 6'5"/ 195cm Krakow native is one of several Polish heavyweight prospects and should be a massive favorite against the more-than-faded Botha.
Earlier this month, he dispactched Danny Williams, another shot fighter, in one round.
The 26 year old Wawrzyk's only loss, a third round TKO, came at the hands of Russian Alexander Povetkin in May 2013.
Let's hope Mr. Botha hangs 'em up for good after this one.
