Sonny Bill Williams is set to return to boxing.
The All Blacks centre hasn’t been in a ring since January 2015, but is now set to return against a fellow rugby league star.
Williams’ promoter Khoder Nasser has confirmed to the Syndey Morning Herald that he will face off against Paul Gallen, after the two camps agreed to a deal.
Gallen is the captain of NRL side Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks and has 32 caps for the Australian rugby league national team.
Gallen boasts a 7 from 7 record, with 3 knockouts to his name. There is no word yet as to when the fight will take place.
