DAVID 'THE TERMINATOR' TUA, or more affectionately known as 'THE TUA MAN' is a kiwi icon,family man and son, devout christian and a killer Samoan warrior who,just for the record had the hardest punch ever recorded, a lion heart and the only thing he's ever feared(besides god} is mums jandal-period. With a jawline made of steel that hid behind a neck that was hard to tell apart from his shoulders he earned a rep on the world stage as someone"you stay away from or David would show you "Disneyland.' The original king hitter'and New Zealands toughest ever, straight out of southside he smashed his way to the top and had all of NZ watching,as he fought for the world title against Lennox Lewis 20 years ago,only to be denied by the 6ft 8 Lewis arm reach. NZ watched in frustration as the always going forward Tua was constantly tied up or kept back by Lewis reach. Surely if it was to be a street brawl David would have sent him into retirement. Davids never hit the deck {controversially 10yr ago},he tripped and got straight back up. Also,known for making a certain Mountain Warriors face explode, Davids NEVER walked backward in the ring, he IS the aggressor, period.

Interestingly, another thing Davids a little less famous for, but he desired to do most with his life, was to become a stand up comedian. David loved playing cheesy jokes and fooling around and a classic example of this can be witnessed in his ground breaking comedy appearance in 1990s SALE OF THE CENTURY. So good was David that he had all NZ,once again eating out of the palm of his hand when he quite jokingly ((and once again catching everyone by surprise,with that cheeky grin ,said the now famous 'O FOR OWESOME' leaving presenter Steve Parr in need of a trouser change. GOOGLE IT! its hilarious.
This solid brass piece created by me from nothing captures David at his comic best..
This is "simple"street art from South Auckland using whatever is clever and employing the'SIMPLICITY IS THE ESSENCE OF GOOD DESIGN' approach. Cheers TUAMAN by SLATEM-METALS Please click here to ask a question
