Barrett vs Tua Trilogy Heads To New Zealand, March 31

By Ryan Burton

Heavyweight Monte Barrett (35-9-2, 20KOs) advised BoxingScene.com that he has reached an agreement to face David Tua (52-4-2, 43KOs) for a third time. The fight will take place in New Zealand next March with the 31st being the most likely date. Barrett defeated Tua via unanimous decision this past August and battled the fighter of Samoan descent to a controversial draw in 2010. He went on to say that he thinks a second victory over Tua will earn him a title shot.
