Tua Hopes Ustinov Win Will Lead To Klitschko Shot
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

New Zealand heavyweight David Tua could possibly earn a shot at one of the two Klitschko brothers - if he scores a knockout win over Belarus boxer Alexander Ustinov on Saturday.

Tua meets Ustinov at Claudelands Arena in Hamilton, a hugely challenging bout with Ustinov ranked inside the top 10 in both the IBF and WBA rankings and with just one career loss from 29 bouts.

The Klitschko brothers, Vitali and Wladimir, between them hold all the major versions of the world heavyweight titles.

The Klitschkos' K2 Promotions chief executive Alexander Krasyuk has confirmed that a knockout win over Ustinov could earn Tua a fight against one of the brothers.

"If he wins and he is impressive, then will David Tua get a title shot? Yes. Definitely," Krasyuk told promoters for the Tua-Ustinov bout.

Tua, 40, hasn't fought for two years, and hasn't knocked out an opponent since Shane Cameron in 2009.

Tua has lost 50kg (110.2-pounds) and is at his lightest fighting weight since tipping the scales at 107kg ahead of his win over Cameron.

I love Tuaman and i think he could KO Ustinov, But I think a klit fight would look a lot like the Tua vs. Lewis fight.

[QUOTE=Tobi.G]Barrett is not durable at all. Barrett was stopped by the heaviest Solis (271 lbs) ever stepping in the ring. But Tua fought him 2 times and was not able to knock him out! This version of Tua will go nowhere, i hope hes in better shape this time.[/QUOTE] I said mainly & was referri...
