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.

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.
