David Tua’s American opponent has weighed in nearly 12kg heavier than Tua, ahead of their bout in Auckland tomorrow night.

Demetrice King tipped the scales at 124.6kg, while Tua has put on just over 5kg since his controversial draw with American Monte Barrett.

He weighed in at 112.8kg.

But Tua’s not putting his WBO belts on the line for this fight – just his reputation.

King enters the fight with a 15-19 record.
