Back in the Ring

Heavyweight champion David Tua, 36, returned to the ring in “smashing fashion” knocking out fellow countryman Shane Cameron, 31, in the second round after seven seconds obliterating his opponent with combinations, crushing him with a right hand and a fight-ending left hook knocking the bloody Cameron down near the ropes. ESPN’s Dan Rafael continues with the roundup of the Hamilton fight: “Tua, who amazingly only fought for a world title once when he was dominated by then-champion Lennox Lewis in a lopsided decision loss in 2001 – has had multiple long layoffs in recent years for various reasons, including a severe falling out with his previous management and an ensuing court case. Maybe the time off will put him back into a fighting frame of mind, which would be great for the division. With Tua you know what you’re going to get. He’s a one-dimensional pressure fighter, but when he lands his left hand, he can knock any man on Earth out cold. That’s what we like to see in heavyweights. Hopefully, it won’t be another two years until Tua is back in the ring.”
