David Tua has taken time out of his pre-fight routine to pay his respects to Peter Fatialofa.
The Samoan rugby legend has been farewelled at a funeral in Auckland this morning, the same time Tua was fronting media ahead of Saturday's bout against Alexander Ustinov.
Tua's called a momentary pause to the pre-fight press conference to remember his long time friend.
He'd dedicated a moment of silence to the man he's calling a great legend, hero and brother.
David Tua says while Fatialofa's passing is very sad, nothing can take away his focus for the fight.
