12:14 pm on 23 June 2013

The boxer David Tua is getting back in the ring to fight the Russian Alexander Ustinov at the end of August in Hamilton.

At six foot eight the 36 year old Russian is 10 inches taller than Tua who lost to the American Monte Barret in his last fight in 2011.

Ustinov has won 28 of his 29 professional fights and is in the same camp as the heavyweight world champion brothers Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko.

The 40 year old Tua is hoping that victory over Ustinov will earn him another world title challenge.
