David Tua Livid: Monte Barrett is Just a Drugs Cheat

By Edward Chaykovsky

According to a report by the Herald Online, David Tua's legal team is moving fast to have his recent loss overturned after Monte Barrett reportedly tested positive for the banned stimulant methylhex-anemine following a urine test after his August 13 in New Zealand. Barrett was nearly knocked out in the final round, but held on to win a decision over Tua after they fought to a controversial draw in the first meeting which took place in Atlantic City.

Tua's lawyer Blair Edwards told 3News that he's filed a petition with the WBO to have the decision overturned.

"We've asked the WBO to overturn the result of the match. We have also asked for the return of the belts that Barrett has in his possession and we have asked for David's rankings to be reinstated to be where they were before the fight," Mr Edwards said.

Tua spoke to the Truth Weekender and blasted Barrett, while also calling for a third fight.

"Monte came to New Zealand telling everyone how hard he had worked to get into the best possible shape for the fight. Now we know he is just a drugs cheat. He has fooled everyone and cheated me out of an honest result."
