Default Welcome Back David Tua.

Man has the Heavyweight division struggled for a decent exciting fighter or what lately.

Yeah Wlad not to bad and yeah Peter is ok but Tua is well explosive and ive missed him.

YES YES YES. Now i might actually start watching the Heavyweights again because of one man.

David Tua you are a savour.

No one is going to put me out of a bad mood now i havnt watched one Heavyweight fight since Tyson and Lewis retired now im back baby.

Thats a bit harsh...he has some great wins over guys like Oleg, Moorer, Ruis and two wins over Rahem...I hope he will step up over the next few fights and show us some big KO's over good guys soon

Tua is a never has been what?

The dude has had some very good wins and has been in some great fights. Took out a ong reigning champ in 19 secs and had a foty with Ike. Active Tua is a dangerous man

Tua is a good fighter, but I can't see him beating any of the top guys. His power will always be a factor though. Apparently they meausred it one time and he hits harder then Tyson. Regardless, vs Wlad he has a punchers chance. VS Peter... FOTY in the heavys. I think he will be to big for Toney, and if he can keep his weight down he would be to good for Briggs. At the moment I think Peter could beat Tua, but it would be a great fight. Paper chin Wlad would be wise to stay away.

If Tua can lose a few more pounds get down to 230 at least then we could see him be a world champ no doubt.

I cant believe some Aussies (Shane mtr)are not excited about Tua comming back and your comments to call a man a has been never was well i watched the fight against Tua vs Lewis and if Tua was 2 inch's taller he might have won the fight.

His explosive and could knock out anyone
some of his qaulity fights and you think he is a has been.
Tua's wins
John Ruiz KO 1
Oleg Maskeav TKO 11
Hasim Rahman TKO 10
Fres Oquendo TKO 9
Michael Moorer KO 1
Now i know these fights were some time ago but if Tua has been training boxers wouldnt that make him smarter and better in the ring now with a bit of a layoff.
34 years of age in the Hevyweight division is nothing and with the Heavyweights around today Tua could make some serious noise.

all im saying is dont be suprised if this time next year he KO's someone like Brewster or Ibrigamov because its not like the top ten Heavyweights are really skillful.
