Sport: David Tua postpones bout with Ustinov

10:57 am on 15 August 2013

The Samoa-born boxer David Tua's bout against Belarusian heavyweight Alexander Ustinov has been postponed until November.

The fight was originally scheduled for Hamilton at the end of this month before Tua suffered a calf strain in training.

It was expected the contest would be put back to late September however challenges in securing a venue and not clashing with other major sports events saw the match-up delayed by close to three months.

The 40 year old Tua is unfazed by the delay, saying it is what it is and that it will allow him even more time to get into peak condition.
