Default Re: Tua v Ahunanya... 2 weeks to go...

Daves last proper left hook was thrown clean against Ruiz... 14 years ago.. Ko's over Cameron and Moorer were honestly a drop in the ocean...... The first time he actually tackles anyone who can stand up against his one trick... may be his downfall.. Ahunanya has never as amateur or pro been dropped or stopped.. and has just Ko's both Cameron and Unbeaten Alonzo Butler.... I hope David is well prepaired... God Bless..

I think "one trick" thinking is a bit harsh mate...Tua also has quite a good straight right and hook..he often sets his big left off a scoring right hand power punch.

Tua also goes to the body hard with both hands....I'm looking forward to this fight and it's going to be huge for both guys.

Only problem I have is they dont show the fight at Airlie Beach

There is an article on scene saying he's fat again and getting tagged in sparring a lot

I hear the Tuaman will be around the same weight he was for the Cameron fight, so weight wont be a problem.
One trick Bigcat? That's a bit harsh, I know you're supporting your man in this one, and good one ya for that, but you have to admit that Tua poses a massive challenge for Ahunanya.
Yeah Ahunanya is a step up from recent competition for Tua, and he is a comparatively risky fight, but really if Tua brings anything like what he's capable of to the ring then Friday will be out of his depth and will get his first KO loss.

Yup - quotes from Tua's former thief manager Kevin Barry, who also says Friday has been sparring Rahman and Peter for this fight - which Bigcat has told us isn't accurate, so how much faith should we put in anything else Barry has to say?

Barry said Tua was sparring a 3rd rate fighter, Israel Garcia, and not that he's getting tagged. Barry also estimated Tua weighed around 260 when he saw Tua sparring Garcia. Listen, Barry hates Tua, and will say anything negative and untrue about him. Tua will come in at under 240.

Barry is full of shit and will do anything to slander Tua. I heard he was about 235 at the moment which is fantastic.

Tua did look pretty average on the news sparring Garcia TBH, but its sparring and I dont think he was going all out, he looked a bit ploddy. Weight was ok from what I could see.

He older and inactive and needs that explosive leg speed that let him hook dudes from far away, its no good against the top guys plodding, eating jabs and hoping to be allowed right into their chest area.
If he cant surprise from range sometimes hes going to get beaten up by Klits

I know he has the reach of like a welterweight but he used to have that explosiveness in his legs so he could leap at folks, hope he still has that.

If he is old Im picking Friday by close decision, Friday is probably better than Cisse Salif who Tua only got a MD against
