Tua shaping up for Ustinov fight

By Karl Freitag

After 9 months of brutal training, heavyweight David Tua (52-4-2, 43 KOs) is said to be down to 242 pounds for his November 16 clash with 6’8 Alexander Ustinov (28-1, 21 KOs) on November 16 at the Claudelands Arena in Hamilton, New Zealand. The bout is being billed as “David vs. Goliath.” The 40-year-old Tua is returning more than two years since his last bout, a decision loss against Monte Barrett in August 2011. Ustinov, 36, last appeared in April in a tuneup bout in the Ukraine. The fight was originally planned for August 31, but was postponed to November after Tua suffered a calf muscle injury.
