Tua vs Barrett July Rematch Will Likely Be Postponed

By Mark Vester

According to the New Zealand Herald, the heavyweight rematch between David Tua and Monte Barrett, scheduled to happen on July 9 or July 16, will likely get postponed as Tua's promoter Cedric Kushner lies sick in a New York hospital. They fought to a controversial draw in New York in July 2010. Kushner has had several serious operations on his troublesome back. He has contractual arrangements with both Barrett and Tua and it is not known where those matters stand.

Robina Tua, Tua's wife and manager, said there could be a delay but added: "This fight will still go ahead. But we obviously can't really confirm anything until we know what is happening."
