Sonny Bill predicting fiery encounter in Hamilton

9:28 am on 8 February 2012

Sonny Bill Williams is vowing to put on a show when he squares up against Clarence Tillman III for the vacant New Zealand heavyweight title in Hamilton tonight, after the two traded blows at yesterday's weigh in.

As the pair exchanged trash talk, Tillman shoved Williams in the chest with the All Black landing a punch and Tillman connecting with a shot before the former league star's entourage swarmed in.

Williams says blood will be spilt in Hamilton.

The undercard starts at 7pm.
