(let your hands go.. move the hands Friday) that was what eventually won the fight against Butler.. He just plain did more against a plodding dejected unbeaten kid........ If he lets his hands go, Friday can make this very uncomfortable for Tua... Its Interesting..... we do fear it going to points, but thats life...
Why would you fear it going to points? Tua has never had a fight go the distance at home, so he has no historical hometown decisions to worry about. The only fights that Tua has been involved with that have questionable decisions have been Ibeabuchi, Rahman II and Salif. A win a loss and a draw and can be argued he won all three.
