David Tua wants Tony Thompson

The return of one of boxing's heavyweight contender's from years ago seems to be more legit now than it has been in the past few years. David Tuaman Tua (52-4-1 43 KO's) is ready to make his return after a nearly two year layoff. He's not holding back for a tune up fight either. Tua's manager is looking to face Tony Thompson next. Thompson is most recently known for his surprising KO victory over one of England's superstar prospects David Price. Since that victory everyone seems to be calling out Thompson. Tua, known for his powerful left hook, hasn't fought since losing a unanimous decision to Monte Barret in August of 2011. Tua's biggest achilles heel in his losses have been his height. At 5'8, he tends to struggle in the heavyweight division with having to face very tall fighters.
