Alexander Ustinov is 2.02 metres tall, weighs in at 137 kilograms and would stare down anyone in the boxing ring.

But it seems he would run a mile rather than fight a politician half his size.

Ustinov, 36, who will fight David Tua in Hamilton at the end of the month, had a guided tour of Parliament today, hosted by NZ First leader Winston Peters – a man used to the rough and tumble of politics, if not a few low blows.

Peters (fighting weight 80kg “when I am fit”) posed beside the Russian giant on front-bench seats in Parliament, joking that “we have a succession plan”.
