David Tua Dominates Demetrice King To Win Decision

By Edward Chaykovsky

At the TelstraClear Pacific in Manukau City, New Zealand, heavyweight contender David Tua (52-3, 43KOs) dominated tough journeyman Demetrice King (15-20, 13KOs) over ten rounds to win a unanimous decision. Tua was blazing with big punches early, attempting to get an impressive early knockout. King is durable and withstood Tua's blows to the head and body in the early rounds. The pace didn't change as the fight continued. King shook off the punches and often countered with taunts. Tua displayed improved stamina, yet King spoiled the party by surviving until the final bell.

[QUOTE=Marchegiano;10255729]Wasn't that the original plan? I mean did he not take this fight because the Barrett rematch fell through?[/QUOTE] No, this was supposed to be a tune-up for the rematch. It's not 100% on though.

[QUOTE=LarryX2011;10255733]guy was 15-19??wow[/QUOTE] Records can be deceiving e.g. Glen Johnson, Emmual Augustus, etc... As to the thread topic, good to hear that Tua was in shape and got some good work in, over ten rounds...
