Finau Maka prepares to knockout ‘Brown Butterbean’

Former Tongan National Rugby Union Captain, Finau Maka will fight Brown Butterbean at the Vodafone Events Centre in Manukau on March 5, 2015.

The 37-year-old Tongan will walk away with $17,000 if he would knock out Butterbean but if the fight results in a draw or loss Maka would take home $2,000.

Right now Kaniva News provides a free, politically independent, bilingual news service for readers around the world that is absolutely unique. We are the largest New Zealand-based Tongan news service, and our stories reach Tongans  wherever they are round the world. But as we grow, there are increased demands on Kaniva News for translation into Tongan on our social media accounts and for the costs associated with expansion. We believe it is important for Tongans to have their own voice and for Tongans to preserve their language, customs and heritage. That is something to which we are strongly committed. That’s why we are asking you to consider sponsoring our work and helping to preserve a uniquely Tongan point of view for our readers and listeners.
