David Tua Eyes Return, Inks Deal With Duco Events

It is a case of one fight at a time for Kiwi boxing veteran David Tua (52-4-2, 43KOs), as he has been given a chance to prove himself on the international stage once again.

The 40-year old heavyweight has signed on with Duco Events in attempt to pursue a World title.

Boss David Higgins tells Stephen McIvor on RadioLIVE's Sunday Sport that he is confident he's backing a winner.

“We think he’s still got the goods. I’m sure he knows that this is like a last chance,” Higgins says. “If he takes it seriously and does it properly and wins then we’ll talk again but this particular contract is for one big fight due next year.”

Tua's last fight was a loss to Monte Barrett in August last year.

Tua:boxing: was one of my favorites too, but he´s way past his prime now.

Why????? I'm guessing he's broke and not another chance at "glory". On 2 ocassions he couldn't even beat a glass chin past his prime Monte Barrett.
