Weights: David Tua in Top Form, Drop 110-Pounds
David Tua's heavyweight bout against Alexander Ustinov is living up to its moniker. Billed as 'David versus Goliath', Tua is giving away a weight advantage of more than 25 kgs [55.1-pounds] to the seven foot Belarussian. Tua's weighed in at 107.5 kgs [236.9-pounds], compared to Ustinov's 132.9 [293-pounds] for tomorrow night's bout in Hamilton. Tua shocked a lot of press members and those in Ustinov's camp. The last time they held a press several months ago, Tua was very overweight, but at today's weigh the boxer was in top form. He is reported to have lost around 50 kgs [110-pounds] for the fight.
Tua appeared to be in his best shape since blowing out Shane Cameron in two rounds back in October of 2009.
[QUOTE=hougigo;13931274]Coming off a 2 year layoff where he retired after his loss[/QUOTE] He'd have to be retired for ten years, 8 feet tall and have a hormonal disorder for 110 pounds not to be flat out stupid. Let's be honest.…Comment by Tobi.G on 11-16-2013

It's all positive for Tua right now but looks don't win fights, so we'll see tomorrow but hopefully he can reproduce at least 75% of his old form. If he does he will be very exciting to watch.Comment by Hayehammer on 11-15-2013
