BoxingScene.com has been informed by boxing advisor Greg Leon that the heavyweight collision between his fighter Monte "Two Gunz" Barrett (35-9-2), and Shane Cameron (28-2), has been moved to July 5th. It was originally scheduled for May 30th in Auckland, New Zealand.
Barrett, who lives in New York, secured one of his biggest career wins in New Zealand. In July of 2010 in Atlantic City, Barrett battled David Tua to a controversial draw. Many observers felt that Barrett did more than enough to leave the ring with the win. Barrett avenged the draw when he won a unanimous decision in their rematch which took place this past August in Manukau City.
There were talks of a trilogy between the Tua and Barrett, but Tua opted to retire - and that eventually led to a deal being made for Barrett and Cameron. The fight will still take place in New Zealand.
