Fighting for the first time in two years (and only the eighth time in the last 6-1/2 years), heavyweight David Tua
(50-3-1) stopped Shane Cameron
(23-2) in two rounds in Hamilton, New Zealand. Tua showed he hasn't lost his power, knocking Cameron down twice in the first round. After the second knock down, Tua landed a left and a right after Cameron was already down and was fortunate not to be penalized (or possibly even disqualified). In round two, Tua immediately landed 13 unanswered shots, knocking Cameron down a third and final time and forcing referee Bruce McTavish to stop the fight only seven seconds into the round.
Tua, who early in the 1990s KO'd John Ruiz, Oleg Maskaev and Hasim Rahman, has squandered what once looked like a promising career with inactivity and poor conditioning. He reportedly shed nearly 60 pounds to get down to 238 for this bout. Nevertheless, Tua is still only 36 and, if he's finally serious about his career again, his one-punch knockout power could make him an interesting opponent for anyone (not named Klitschko) in the heavyweight division.
