Wellington - The professional boxing career of All Blacks and Crusaders star Sonny Bill Williams faces a new credibility test after revelations his next opponent is on welfare for a disability which prevents him from working.
VIDEO: Sonny Bill Williams trains for his fight
Williams will face 43-year-old Tongan gospel singer Alipate Liava'a in a six-round heavyweight bout in Auckland on Sunday. Liava'a is now being investigated by New Zealand welfare authorities as he claims he can't find a job because he has tennis elbow.
Sunday's bout will be the fourth of Williams's professional career and follows fights with a New Zealand nightclub bouncer and an Australian forklift driver.
Liava'a stands to earn 6 000 New Zealand dollars ($4 900) from the fight and intends to use the money to finance an album of gospel songs.
