More:



In one of the most brutal fights in heavyweight history, undefeated Ike Ibeabuchi hands David Tua his first loss by a unanimous decision after twelve bone-crunching rounds of action. Tua and Ibeabuchi trade heavy thunder, setting a CompuBox record for punches thrown in a heavyweight bout, but the judges all see a close fight in favor of the Nigerian. Post fight, Tua requires surgery to remove pieces of bone from his elbow while Ibeabuchi needs an MRI and later complains of being haunted by demons.

Smashing fight!

Ike Ibeabuchi is a case of what could have been but I think if his Boxing career continued he would have lost on the next level against bigger better more focused men.
