David fat ass tua just lost. I am happy. I cant stand lazy fat heavyweights. He can now become a sumo and take on solisPosted November 16, 2013 7:30 am
sad to see a former great 90′s heavyweight a former shell of himself still fighting. Hope tua doesnt get hurtPosted November 16, 2013 2:06 am
The article claims this fight is only important for New Zealand. Not true. K2 is talking about a title shot for the winner. So it means more than some admit.Posted November 16, 2013 12:37 am
His fighting spirit was taken by IbeabuchiPosted November 15, 2013 11:32 pm
I’ll be baked, in Auckland, watching this fight live. Depending how much fighting spirit Tua has left in him, which is the real question, we’ll see how much Tua has left. I hope he KO’s the giant Russian. Good odds on the TAB here, $7.50 Tua Decision?Posted November 15, 2013 8:50 pm
Tuaman is back!!Posted November 15, 2013 8:08 pm
i dont think its rigged though cause ustinov would have to be in on it, but i think certain powers that be are trying to make it as easy as possible for a tua victory. why would k2 worry about putting ustinov against tua when they could off just pulled some strings and just put ustinov in with a klitschko? they are all promoted by k2. k2 seem to be bery interested in this fight as well!Posted November 15, 2013 7:54 pm
Redz that was me posting below as anon.Posted November 15, 2013 7:41 pm
Redz, I don’t think I’ve ever heard a ref so blatantly speak in favour of one fighter, to the extent that he uses the terms “we needed”, almost as if he’s part of team Tua!
It’s Vitali that’s interested in this fight. Not Wladimir.
Australian Brad Vocale, who’ll referee the fight, said the bout was mostly for Tua’s benefit.
redz, I stand corrected, although their man Ustinov is fighting, so it’s in K2′s interest to help promote the fight whether that be in official capacity or not.Posted November 15, 2013 5:13 pm
the plastic hw fans will love this one.Posted November 15, 2013 4:02 pm
Rod, Ustinov is indeed a beast of a man, but he is slow and lumbering and not that skilled so Tua has a shot at beating Ustinov despite the size disparity.Posted November 15, 2013 2:55 pm
Tua will lose and become a sumo. Losing all that weight shows how much he let hims3lf go. He is no professional athlete. Trying to run it off a few weeks before a fight will not prepare him for a 6″8 beastPosted November 15, 2013 2:49 pm
chitownfightfan I agree with you that neither fighter will get a shot at the title on the back of this fight whoever wins.
Sorry JS, but neither of these guys gets a title shot from this fight. Theyre both coming off losses, and neither have significant enough wins in past 3 yrs to get that kindof treatment. Wlad may be ruling over a thin division as some 70s/90s nuthuggers may believe, but he doesnt need to go to the bottom of the top 10 from the 90s either. He’s got plenty of top 20s who would be willing to take voluntary $$$ should they win their next fights. Adamek for one.Posted November 15, 2013 6:53 am
The fight everyone wants is similar to the movie SAW
