Tua off Feb. 6 card in Atlantic City

NEW YORK (Dec. 16, 2009) – Promoter Cedric Kushner, president of Gotham Boxing, Inc., announced today with deep regret that WBO #3 rated heavyweight contender David Tua had advised him that, due to family matters, he had to withdraw from his proposed February 6th fight in Atlantic City.

“I was really looking forward to coming to America after the holidays but, due to this significant family matter,” Tua explained, “I simply have to remain in New Zealand and continue my preparation for my March 27th event here.”

Tua (50-3-1, 43 KOs) has defeated four world champions – Michael Moorer, Hasim Rahman, John Ruiz and Oleg Maskaev — during his illustrious and often entertaining 17-year pro career.

“I really feel sorry for Dave,” Kushner said. “I know how much he was looking forward to the first defense of his WBO Asia Pacific and Oriental titles, but Dave has always considered his family above and beyond everything else.”
