SBW names new opponent

2012-01-16 07:52

Wellington - All Blacks star Sonny Bill Williams will fight American Clarence Tillman III for the vacant New Zealand heavyweight boxing title next month after the arrest of his original opponent on drugs charges.

Williams, who has won all four of his professional bouts to date, had been due to fight Richard Tutaki in Hamilton on February 8, but Tutaki was due in court on Tuesday to face 10 charges including possession of methamphetamine and receiving stolen property.

Williams will now face 34-year-old Auckland-based American Tillman on the same date and at the same venue.

Tillman is seen as the best of Williams' opponents to date, though the American only beat the modestly credentialled Tutaki in a split decision last year.
