By Edward Chaykovsky

At the TelstraClear Pacific in Manukau City, New Zealand, heavyweight contender David Tua (52-3, 43KOs) dominated tough journeyman Demetrice King (15-20, 13KOs) over ten rounds to win a unanimous decision. Tua was blazing with big punches early, attempting to get an impressive early knockout. King is durable and withstood Tua's blows to the head and body in the early rounds. The pace didn't change as the fight continued. King shook off the punches and often countered with taunts. Tua displayed improved stamina, yet King spoiled the party by surviving until the final bell.

Tua, who is one dimensional, throws hard early, then runs out of gas trying to hang on, is never going to be a real deal in this dreadful heavyweight division.

They say power is the last thing to go, but something is going on when David Tua and Vitali Klitschko fights, often against opponents that have been stopped before, keep going to decisions. This was true of Big George towards the end too, but at least he was old as hell.

I believe King fought on the undercard of Bradley/Alexander. That dude is a straight up BUM.

[QUOTE=Marchegiano]Wasn't that the original plan? I mean did he not take this fight because the Barrett rematch fell through?[/QUOTE] No, this was supposed to be a tune-up for the rematch. It's not 100% on though.

[QUOTE=LarryX2011]guy was 15-19??wow[/QUOTE] Records can be deceiving e.g. Glen Johnson, Emmual Augustus, etc... As to the thread topic, good to hear that Tua was in shape and got some good work in, over ten rounds...
