Heavyweight Alexander Ustinov who is in New Zealand to face David Tua in Hamilton, New Zealand on August 31 was given a guided tour of the New Zealand Parliament today. While there Ustinov was asked if he would be interested in a career in Politics. “I am not a big fan of myself being in politics,” he told “It’s dirty. Boxing is a fair game. In politics, it’s not so fair. People are not really honest. They try to overcome each other; sometimes lie to each other.”

Reaction: Glad none of that happens in the boxing business.
