considering how remote they once were, how restricted by only NZ to migrate to, its not hard to see why. now with the canges to our migration laws, they are here by the hundreds of thousands with excellent trainers all round the country, we will see that list triple in the next 20 years.

Migrate? haha you mean lure them to over with money to play Rugby. Don't think there will be much left of boxing in 20 years the way it goes on now

also, its a no brainer.
they are big.
they are here by the thousand.

a world heavy title will come within 10 years.
Brute strength and power will not win a title.

Masoe won a world title - YES,but other then that he didn't defeat any one of note besides a few contenders..
Tua on the other hand,fought,ko'd many of title holders that were past and future at the time,but did not win a title himself..So def those 2 are top 2

...If anything, American Football is on par with Rugby, not Boxing. There's been a huge investment made by the IRB in both countries recently and American Football is followed by almost everyone for obvious reasons.

Samoa was formerly know as Western Samoa and changed names in 97'. American Samoa some 25 minutes away on Polynesian airlines is where American Football is popular.
