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.

Cool cant wait for this fight. 3rd one will be the best one for sure, Tua will go all out :boxing:

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.

They should add Bowe and Tommy Morrison, make it a round robin. Maybe Holyfield could fight the winner? :popcorn:
