Congratulations David Tua

3 Oct

You can get knocked down twelve times but if you keep on getting back up then you still have a chance to win. Everyone gets knocked down but not everyone gets back up. I feel inspired having just watched David Tua win a major boxing fight in New Zealand.

David Tua fought Lennox Lewis for the world title and never really got close to hitting him. Then he hit financial problems with a never ending dispute with his manager and promoters. At 37 years of age and  26kgs overweight he hadn’t fought for two years, everyone thought his career was over… but he got back up.

He lost the weight by getting up at 4am every morning and going to the gym, tonight in the best shape of his life he fought the best that New Zealand had to offer and he won.
