David Tua vs Alexander Ustinov
Power puncher David Tua took on Goliath sized Russian boxer, Alexander Ustinov, Saturday 16 November at Claudelands Arena, Hamilton.
For this much anticipated comeback, the Tuaman underwent a brutal 6 month training camp with Lee Parore and took on the IBF world number seven ranked Alexander Ustinov, who stands at 6 ft 8 inches tall.
The Tuaman just came up short, the height advantage proving too much for the South Aucklander, outclassed by the huge frame of Ustinov.
