David Tua vs. Monte Barrett Trilogy in Play For Next Year?
By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg
Sources in New Zealand have advised BoxingScene.com that heavyweight veteran David Tua (54-4-2, 43KOs) has been approached about the possibility of facing Monte Barrett (35-9-2, 20KOs) for a third time in early 2012. The fight could possibly take place in March. Tua fought Barrett to a majority draw in 2010 and lost a twelve round decision in their August 2011 rematch. Tua reportedly owes between $2 to $3 million dollars in back tax, so retirement is not an option. A third fight with Barrett could be Tua's biggest financial option at the moment.

The first two fights were highly competitive and entertaining, so a third one is good news. I'd love to see it. Some of you people don't even sound like you're boxing fans --all you do is whine.Comment by Money Shot on 11-20-2011
They should add Bowe and Tommy Morrison, make it a round robin. Maybe Holyfield could fight the winner? :popcorn:Comment by richardt on 11-20-2011
