Maybe just to stay busy while Maskaev/Peter, Chagaev (hep B), Ibragimov/Holyfield, Byrd/Povetkin, and Brock/Chambers are all tied up. Tua is a big name in today's heavyweight division.

I, for one, don't like the idea of this fight. Speaking as a Tua fan, its a bad move on his part. He has a much better chance of beating Samuel Peter, Oleg Maskaev, Evander Holyfield, or Sultan Ibragimov.

One reason is cause Tua has serious knockout power, two he has a top 3 chin in the heavywieght division, the third reason is Wlad has trouble with fighters who have power and a good chin. Brewster,sanders,and Peter.

Sadly, your right about this and this is the source of my frustration.

Brooklyn I also think your right, its a stay busy fight. If I could only believe that it would be immediately followed by some kind of unification I could swing it, but I just think these guys are never going to unify.

Tua is still decent and not old for a heavyweight, although he is past his prime as we know. But he still is a tremendous puncher and his chin is still iron.

I prefer Wlad-Tua instead of Wlad-Chambers/Briggs/Ruiz/Virchis/etc

As do I.

Its as good a fight as Wlad can get until all the other title fights are settled. I hope Tua wins, then Wlad beats him in the rematch. Just because I think Wlad will be better for the long run. And Tua MUST become a HW champ. If John ****in' Ruiz got to, Tua should have at least a few chances .

Right now there isn't but, after beating Tua (if the rumours of their fight are true), Wlad must focus on one of these:

a) Ibragimov-Holyfield winner
b) Peter-Maskaev winner (but I think Vitali will take this one)
c) Povetkin/Chambers/Byrd/Brock winner

Chagaev is out of the picture until he announces what he is going to do with his boxing career.

i didnt understand a word of that

Tua has nothing more than a punchers chance IMO - he doesnt have the stamina or speed to keep up with Wlad. He would spend the entire night on the end of the jab/cross combination and lose in a wide UD

This isnt the late 90's man.

And who are the fake heavies your talking about, and what does Tua do that makes him a real heavy?
