Native Affairs – The Brown Butterbean

South Aucklander David Letele, a.k.a. The Brown Butterbean, is making a name for himself as a boxer in what some dismiss as just "Corporate Fights".

These are seen as low level scraps put on to amuse the punters from the other end of town as they enjoy their flash dinners while awaiting the main event.

But don't tell David this; these fights are real and the blows are brutal.  However, David's recent career in the ring is far from his first bruising experience; his whole life has been one constant battle and finally he might just be a winner in a fight that's really been full of pain.
