Review: 2011-08-13, we do not understand why David Tua woke up and started to fight just in the last rounds. In fact Tua knocked down Monte Barrett in the twelfth round but Barrett survived and won deservedly the fight by unanimous decision. As the first match (ended in a draw) this second fight between David Tua and Monte Barrett was valid for the WBO Asia Pacific and WBO Oriental heavyweight titles. Watch the video!
