David Tua is in the ring tonight hoping for a much needed win against American journeyman Demetrice King.
Tua is fighting in his home patch of South Auckland for the first time, and is banking not only on plenty of support ringside but a decent pay cheque as well.
In typical Tua fashion, Pacific flavoured entertainment is promised to play a big part in the bout's lead up.
10:40pm - We have a knockout! Under card fight number five saw Maselino Masoe against Kashif Mumtaz and Masoe landed the knockout blow!
10:34pm – We have a split decision in the fourth under card fight, the back slammer himself, Vaitele Soi has won it and Siale looks less than impressed.
9:30pm – Under card fight 3 is all over and went the distance. It was a battle between Warren Fuiava and Niusila Seiuli, a clash Fuiava took out. Haven’t seen Tuaman arrive yet, looking out for the big fella, the fans have certainly come out tonight.
David Tua’s American opponent has weighed in nearly 12kg heavier than Tua, ahead of their bout in Auckland.
Demetrice King tipped the scales at 124.6kg, while Tua has put on just over 5kg since his controversial draw with American Monte Barrett.
He weighed in at 112.8kg.
But Tua’s not putting his WBO belts on the line for this fight – just his reputation.
King enters the fight with a 15-19 record.

@Rolan just shows how ignorant u r of peoples cultures. Tua has every right to play those anthems as he represents them all. As for being scared why dont you get in the ring?? these guys work and train hard and his opponent was strong. Kings punch would land you outside the ring! so stop being a rat and analyze the matches as they are!!
