Sisa Waqa, 6'3

Sione Lousi, 6'3

Moses Pangai, 6'3

Lote Tuqiri 6'3

feliti mateo 6'3

and theres even more at 6'2 so bloody many, i couldnt be bothered. out of that lot, plus the ones that dont quite make the NRL, you recon theres no potential world champs there?

all the above would run 100m in under 12 seconds. some close to 10.5

all hand picked, established athletes. big, strong, and playing NRL. imagine the rugby union list as well. imagine the ones on the cusp of playing NRL. also the NSW cup or the Q cup?

theres only 103,000 tongans in tonga. only 177,000 samoans in samoa. they do ok for such a small population....wouldnt you say?

now they have access to good trainers, and management, its only a matter of time. it may well be knoder nasser has accidentally started a habit that will lead to a code crossing champ. i dont mean SBW.....


smokin joe was 5'11

mike tyson was 5'10.


and if anyone would like to look......harold brazier started boxing at 26yo....look at what he achieved..he started in 1987

Sergio's smouldering ***iness crosses all boundaries. Doesn't matter what race,religion or ***ual orientation you are it is irrefutable fact Sergio Martinez is a disarmingly handsome and ***y man. swingin's 1 man crusade in promoting and prothesising Pacific Islander Heavyweight domination is different. He is the only one who sees this. I mean are any of them even in the top 70 Heavyweights presently?

I think Bowie would have to be the highest ranking HW from the islands (That if Tua is unranked atm).

None come to mind

Sallywinder should go to a Tongan prison. You'll have all the islander **** you've ever dreamt of, and they'll **** you to a state of new stupidity, that even you've never uncovered.

Boxing is too hard for most of them, that's why they play footy. It pays more, there's a better chance of cracking it as teams have more positions and it's not as physically and mentally demanding. I know if I had the natural size and athleticism and the choice between training hard for years in obscurity with the remote possibility of earning some money, or the chance to earn big bucks fast, with the lifestyle attached, what I would choose.
It's not just Polynesians, but the majority of the natural talent in Australia that once fed boxing is now pursuing other sports that give greater financial reward for less risk. It's something I can't see changing unless boxing in Australia can match the money and promotion of the football codes.

youre the only bloke who deserves an answer.

had it not been for clyde loydes men in the 70s-80s, all the racists here would say that black men cant bowl a cricket ball. the fact is, joel garner etc attracted so much attention from american sports that all the tall athletic west indians are now playing NBL, ETC for guaranteed money. the west indian cricket side is decimated from other sports. very few tall athletic men from such a small population focus on cricket now, because the yanks moved in and took their talent to play basketball, gridiron or baseball. their cricket team is ****ed

pacific island athletes can be viewed the same way, except in reverse. they STARTED off becomming noticed though the 2 rugbys and to a lesser extent, basketball through guaranteed money. they have has small success in boxing though jimmy thunder, david tua, and some earlier. of course, maselino masoe won the middle title.

but if the reverse happens, and these talented big athletes look at boxing as an option, they are going to produce some very serious fighters.

as small in population as the west indies, they will make as big an impact in world sport. they just have never had a pathway. all athletes need a pathway. now that they are living here, there are many trainers that can guide them to the top. its a matter of time....

a 6' alex leapai is the worlds heaviest puncher. a 6'6 leapai (and im sure one is out there in the next ten years) will create havoc, and turn a whole population of rugby fanatics into boxing fanatics as well. just you wait. it will happen.

kkkel. the klits are slavs. not aryans. so they are not of your 'master race'....
