David Tua Could Soon Begin His Political Career

David Tua has met with the Maori Party to discuss whether he might stand at next year's election.

The New Zealand Herald reports the retired boxer met with party general manager Norm McKenzie and vice president Donna Gardiner for more than two hours at a North Shore cafe.

The discussion went as far as talking about whether he would stand in a general seat in South Auckland. It's believed David Tua will come back to the Maori Party in the new year with a decision. He voiced support for the party’s work during a televison interviewed during last month’s Maori Sports Awards.

Tua, 41-years-old, retired from the ring after last month’s unanimous points loss against Belarusian giant Alexander Ustinov.
