Fulilangi was born Sonatane Fulilangi in Tonga.Prior to his career Fulilangi attended Brigham Young University in Hawaii where he had been offered a track and field scholarship. He dropped out and didn't do much of anything for a couple of years until he decided to go to Phoenix to visit his brother. He went to a boxing gym there and punched the coach. After that he went to Al Fenn's gym and had a bit of similar trouble there when sparring with a former Golden Glove champion. His first asmateur fights were all won by knockout before the second round had finished. Fulilangi's change from an amateur boxer to pro came about when he went to Hawaii to visit his sister. He had a fight in a Honolulu gym with the best heavyweight in Hawaii. He beat him and was offered a pro fight. On his first fight he beat his opponent by knocking him out in the first round. The following six pro fight saw Fulilangi knocking his opponent out before the second round was up. Fenn would play a part in straightening out the young Fulilangi somewhat.
