Barrett will go out from any hard clean punch from Tua, but both of these guys look pretty washed up, to me.
I'd always wanted to know what it would feel like to hold the mitts for a real hard hitting heavyweight. Cool story, bro! =)
orb looc yrots
Oh and, washed up Tua destroys washed up Barrett.
Barrett gets ko'd in that fight, i'd be surprised at any other outcome
I'm sure he hits hard enough, and it must be impressive to feel his power from the mitts/bag but Tua is one of the hardest hitters of his era and hits a lot harder
I'm 6'2 and weigh in at around 265lbs with less than 12% bodyfat.... Even standing behind a heavybag his punch felt like someone hit me with a baseball bat! It was definitely crazy!
If Monte ISN'T one of the hardest hitters out there than I absolutely CANNOT FATHOM what the others punches feel like. All I'm saying is "thank God I'm not a boxer." lol
Yeah, you ought to have seen elite Heavyweight David Haye smashing up Monte Barrett.
That was a darn good scrap.
I love a thrill-fighter like Haye.
They go for the KO even while you just know they may get knocked down themself.
Tua was finished as a top Heavyweight a long time ago.
If Barrett can't beat him, he ought to hang them up.
Well try telling that to the ultimate fightin' fans in the heavys and you are said to be delusional...
I was told that A. Silva would hit just as hard as a top pro Boxer in his weight class.
Did you get a chance to hold the bag for any top MMA HW's just so you could compare?
Count yourself lucky that you weren't behind this bag:
YouTube - George Foreman Hitting Heavy Bag
YouTube - Foreman vs Moorer 10th rd ko
But ya, Tua should easily KO Monte.
Highlights of Tua:
YouTube - Kimbo, meet David Tua
Highlights of his most recent fight:
YouTube - David Tua vs Shane Cameron (Gorilla Productions)
Hopefully it'll be a great fight.
Hoping for a Tua knockout. I'm half-Samoan so I gotta support my boy.
Try being the guy that holds the bag for Tua...:icon_neut
im hope tua delivers another highlight reel k.o.
I think Barrett will get stopped badly for the third time in his last 4 fights and get his 4th loss in a row. I don't know how well off he is financially, but it may be time to hang it up after this fight.
I've sparred with and held mitts for Travis Walker, who is at a similar level to Barrett, and yes, they can hit.
I'm picking the Tua man in this one
Tua by knock out early.
Barrett's got no chance whatsoever judging by his last few fights. I Hope he doesn't take too much damage.
I'm not going to watch it.
I figure this is a fight, with a known boxer in Barrett, set up to make Tua look good in his comeback. Too bad this isnt on HBO or something. Not paying $25 for it.
Even Tua with his diminished skills should put him away
Samoans are scary powerful/durable..
Tua via TKO
Interesting take on things.
Barrett has been looking far gone in his last few fights now, but of course, they do always say the last thing to leave a fighter is his punch. Under the serious pressure of an onslaught in a fight against an opponent who really wants to win, he just doesn't have it anymore, sadly. Gym work is one thing.
Tua by early-mid stoppage. Fight doesn't really prove anything though. Think anybody in the top 25 should handle Barrett with relative ease, and it's questionable how much Tua actually has left to offer, besides his punch.
