6:16 am on 21 October 2010

The New Zealand heavyweight boxer David Tua looks set to return to the ring in December.

Reports in the United States say Tua and Monte Barrett will headline in seperate bouts in early December in Aruba in the Caribbean.

No opponents have been named for either fighter.

The idea should each win would be a rematch of their draw in Atlantic City in July.

Tua was knocked down for the first time in his career by Barrett in the 12th and final round of that fight.
