The much anticipated heavyweight boxing bout between South African Francois Botha and New Zealand rugby star Sonny Bill Williams might have to be put on ice, as the rugby international currently plying his trade in Japan, has been ruled out of rugby for up to three months.

Williams will undergo surgery to fix a pectoral muscle in his chest, which puts the bout, which was scheduled for late November, in serious doubt.

Williams made a tackle on Australian Gene Fairbanks and crunched his shoulder, which led to the injury and the subsequent surgery.

It is reported that the boxing bout will be postponed to a later date.

  • @Dunx (Comment 1) : Seems more like he’s doing his level best to avoid Botha.

    He first fired his coach and now all of a sudden has a serious injury.

    He knows the myth that is SBW will be beaten to a pulp by Botha, that won’t look to flash on his resumé.
