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 hes still got the goods. Im sure he knows that this is like a last chance, Higgins says. If he takes it seriously and does it properly and wins then well 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.

Good luck Tua. Hopefully he can get a good payday then **** off out of it before he takes some serious damage. A lot of people look up to him in this country.

George Foreman said as he got older the fury got stronger. But I agree with the sentiments, his manager fucked him around lost alot of money from his fights. He's living in his gym at the moment, his wife has left him, so I guess he needs this. Good luck Tuaman.

He needs money, I'm sure.

Tua:boxing: was one of my favorites too, but hes 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.
