Both of my sentences should be correct. Do they both sound equally natural?

a. He resigned in 1967 due to a dispute with his former boss.
b. Due to a dispute with his former boss he resigned in 1967.

They mean the same, but note the comma in #2.

Just as a side exercise for you, do you know the possible interpretations of the sentence highlighted in blue? :)
