Sad to see the Tuaman leave but it was high time for him to do it.

I will always remember his devastating left hook and the fight against John Ruiz in which he just annihilated the 'Boring man'. I thought he killed him with that left that spun Ruiz's head around when he was falling. Talk about devastation...

I think he was one of the most overlooked and feared dudes in the HW division. Sure, he was ridiculed by Lennox, but I admire his heart and determination. He boasts a great record of 52-5-2 and faced solid opposition.

May he enjoy his retirement and here is hoping he won't come back to tarnish what hes accomplished.

Tua was one of the better Heavyweights Not to win a World Title. Very fun fighter to watch though.

this retirement 10 years ago?? Shoulda been... Tua was fun to watch. Good contender. Always a threat to knock someone's head off. His fight with Ike Ibeabuchi was one of the best fights I've ever seen.

I think it's sad. I personally think Haye took way too much flack for the whole "toe" incident. Till this day, Dan Rafael and others have made that synonymous with Haye's name. He's not the only person to blame a loss on an injury. Shane Mosley still talks about his toe and foot injuries as the reason he lost to Floyd AND Manny. I actually saw David Haye's toe looking broke after his fight. I can't say the same for other excuse makers. I was as disappointed as anyone that day, but I think it was way overblown. I thought he looked very impressive in his win vs Chisora. He's a good fighter and I think he would have beat Fury.

Never liked Haye...he never truly delivered when it came down to it. He was always content with blowing smoke up the asses of boxing fans, and those phantom injuries of his before meaningful fights, did him no justice.

I wont take much more away from him, but on this end, he wont be missed.
