Sydney - All Black rugby star Sonny Bill Williams on Saturday recorded his seventh boxing career victory with a unanimous points win against American Chauncy Welliver.

Williams dominated an out of shape Welliver for most of the fight. He now boasts a 7-0 career win/loss record in the boxing ring.

In one of the undercards, All Blacks and Chiefs loose forward Liam Messam made a successful start to his professional boxing career by claiming a unanimous decision over winless but rugged Australian heavyweight Rhys Sullivan, the Stuff.co.nz website reports.

Messam, who had previously fought twice in the annual Fight for Life charity promotion against Wendell Sailor and Paul Gallen, completed the step-up to his first serious bout in style as he dominated the little-known Sullivan, who slumped to his fourth straight defeat.
