Tua-Ustinov Gets Pushed Back To Novemer 16th Date

Promoter David Higgins of Duco Events has announced that David Tua vs. Alexander Ustinov has been postponed until November 16. The fight was originally slated for Claudelands Arena on August 31, but pushed back after Tua picked up a minor grade 1 calf muscle injury last week. Higgins was looking to push the fight back to a date in September, but conflicts with other sporting events forced the match to get rescheduled to a much later date.

“This is the fight game and every now and again fighters get injured and plans change,” said Higgins. "People forget that the Fight of the Century (the 2009 bout between Tua and Shane Cameron) was delayed for nine months. That delay only added to the intrigue and anticipation for the fight. With the event almost sold out, Duco Events want to assure GA ticket holders that their tickets will remain valid for the new date and a new ticket will not be issued. "

“Alexander and his crew from K2 Promotions have been exceptional. They understand that delays are commonplace in the world of boxing. They couldn’t have been more accommodating in terms of accepting the new date."

Tua seeing Chavez Jr's nutritionist?

I hear promoters have engaged rope manufacturers to develop a special fibre that will allow Tua into the ring without snapping or stretching under duress. That's what the delay is about...
