    ^^^^

    damn right they do.

    But still, its apparent that Tua is gonna keep fighting to repay the debt that he has. His main motivation is money at this point, not of holding the strap.

    It really sucks that he couldn't even afford to pay for a trainer for his last fight with Monte.

    These fighter should have taxes held out of their purses before they see any money. Then this wouldn't happen, the temptation is just to much when the money is there to be spent.

    EFF taxes!!

    If a majority would agree stop paying income taxes it would force politicians to implement national consumption taxes which are fair and equitable and include everyone.
    People whose lives have been destroyed by back taxes (whether its from poor management, bad investments or bad advice) would not be impacted to the point of desperation.

    The money he earned was HIS money!...NOT a government's!...He should not OWE anything.

    Boxers are grown-ass men; they can make sure that their financial obligations are met like big boys.

    i really hate reading about stuff like this especially to a true good guy in boxing like tua....when a boxer HAS to fight solely for money and only money its the first step towards complete deterioration of ability which was in full display for the barrett fight...tua has beaten so many heavies who've at times been a heavyweight champion of the world but never him.....for crying out loud he fought weak chinned monte barrett to a controversial draw in which he should have lost plus was nearly knocked out..wel i hope he gets one more big payday before somebody plays the spoiler role

    Well he better make sure he stays healthy because he'll need a few fights to pay it off and then save some up!

    Doesn't matter if it's David Tua or the Brown Bomber, this "tax the rich because they're evil" only hurts the poor when they become rich and don't know how to hide their money.

    Flat 15% tax across the board or GTFO
