Kiwi boxer David Tua's transformation has been clear to see, revealing his new look frame for the first time.
With less than a month out from his much anticipated heavyweight bout with Alexander Ustinov, Tua still has time to trim down even more.
The 40-year-old's new look and recovery from a calf injury has left in him in a good frame of mind.
"I'm very upbeat, I'm positive about this fight, feeling good and the calf is good, it's not too bad for an old fella," Tua says.
Tua has parted ways with trainer Dave Hitchcock and replaced him with local Henry Schuster.
Tua and Ustinov clash in Hamilton on November 16.
