Cape Town - There’s never a dull moment when Francois "White Buffalo" Botha fights.
The veteran heavyweight will limber up again, this time in New Zealand on June 13, taking on rookie Joseph Parker.

It will be Botha’s first bout since his loss to Sonny Bill Williams in Australia in February.
The 60-fight veteran will be favoured to beat Parker, who has had just five pro fights - all wins - after a solid amateur career.
In an unusual twist, Botha’s son Marcel will also be stepping into the ring for his debut, fighting Jeremy Sebastian, the brother of Australian singer Guy Sebastian.
Also making his pro debut will be the son of former All Black Inga Tuigamala, Jordan Tuigamala. He will be fighting in the super-middleweight class.
In a first for SuperSport, a “dwarf boxing world championship” will also be contested between Matthew Wood and Colin Lane.
