David Tua's preparation before his showdown against giant Russian Alexander Ustinov at Hamilton's Claudelands Arena on August 31, has been like no other. Tua said 'There's darkness and emptiness that I've never experienced in my whole career and I'm quite humbled that I've experienced it this time'. The Russian Goliath 'Alexander Ustinov' was accompanied by his trainer and translator as the New Zealand media surrounded the pair.
