Lofipo Alipapa Afakasi says one of the highlights in his over 30-year long career was to represent New Zealand at the Commonwealth Games in Edinburgh 1970.
Ali was awarded a Member of the NZ Order of Merit for services to sport, in particular boxing, at an investiture ceremony at Government House in Auckland on 20 September 2007. He was a welterweight and light-welterweight representative for New Zealand and Samoa.
