In brief: Yes
Direct trauma or repeated trauma (boxers) can cause cataract formation.
It can also cause further injury to the lens suspension system that can increase risks in cataract surgery.

In brief: Certainly!
The blunt trauma can cause cataract, and also knock the lens loose inside the eye making the surgery a major challenge at times!
