David vs Goliath

David Tua's upcoming fight will determine whether or not he gets to fulfil his destiny and get a world heavyweight title bout.

So Tua's team brought in a couple of body doubles from the U.S to help him prep for the bout, due to the dramatic height difference between his upcoming opponent, standing at 6'7", and himself at 5'10".

A calf injury earlier in the year saw David being forced to rest up for some time. The upside, according to David, was to swap his original coach, Australian David Hitchcock, for a friend and kinsman, Henry Schuster.

The fight takes place on the November 16 at the Claudelands Showgrounds in Hamilton.
