By Chris LaBate

Heavyweight David Tua is already looking ahead at rematch with Monte Barrett. They fought to a disputed twelve round draw last year. Barrett gave Tua a lot of problems and dropped him in the twelfth round of their fight. Tua's promoter, Cedric Kushner, says a deal to face Barrett for a second time is almost done. Their first fight happened in Atlantic City. Barrett told Kushner that he is willing to take the rematch in Tua's backyard of New Zealand. If Tua beat Barrett, Kushner would like to match him against former champion Evander Holyfield in the fall. Holyfield is scheduled to face Brian Nielsen on May 7 in Denmark.
