Former world heavyweight challenger David Tua (50-3-1, 43 KOs) said today his training camp had been one of the best ever and he was ready for Friday “The 13th” Ahunanya (24-5-3, 13 KOs) for the showdown at the Trusts Stadium in Auckland next Wednesday. Ahunanya was unhappy he was kept waiting for 45 minutes. Ahunanya said, “I was a little bit pissed off about it.” Tua was confident of victory next week when he said, “When you’re happy, you’re focused and determined, you have your mind right. When you have your mind right, you tend to be more devastating.”

“I’ve done the hard work, but there is nothing else to do than wait for the fight. But you can get into a situation you can’t get out of, especially when you get too relaxed,” he said. “This is, I believe, the most important time.”
The David Tua vs Friday Ahunanya will be televised throughout New Zealand on Maori Television network and throughout Australia on Main Event pay-per-view television.
