At 191cm tall and weighing 100kg, Monte Barrett, an American Boxer from Carolina shocked viewers as he defeated the unstoppable force, David “Tuaminator” Tua by way of Decision.
After the first 8 rounds, Barrett was clearly the winner, but David Tua exploded with a series of solid punches almost knocking the Two Guns out.
In round 12, Barrett was almost knocked out, but his faith kept him alive. Before this bout, Barrett became bankrupt after the stockmarket crashed and had been denied a victory for so long. His faith in Jesus Christ and his toughness to take THREE solid punches from Tua kept him going and eventually, win both of Tua’s championships.
Now wondering, whether he should take the belts and retire or keep fighting.
His good friend John Cena has been hoping that Barrett would come to the WWE and take up a career as a Professional Wrestler. A huge change for the 40 year old boxer.
He’s always had an interest in wrestling and he’s been re-energised by the enthusiasm of one of his sons. But Barrett is also getting pressured by his good friend John Cena who recently lost the WWE championship.
Barrett admits he’s tempted: “I’ve always been a wrestling fan since `Superfly’ Jimmy Snuka back in the 1970s and 80s.
Barrett remains open-minded for the moment, with all of his concentration on Tua who he believes he will have to knock out if he is to get a win in New Zealand.
“After I beat Tua and come back, then I’ll start weighing up my options.”
Barrett has also spoken of his favorite moves he will use in wrestling such as the Superfly splash and the Cobra clutch that he enjoyed watching Jimmy Snuka and Sgt Slaughter use in the 70’s and 80’s.
Could this 40 year old Oceanic boxing champion really put down the gloves and put on some tights? Well, lets just hope he doesn’t get paired with the likes of Jake Hager.
His victory over the fierce Samoan warrior is well deserved and I, as a New Zealander congratulate him.
