If you watch that fight they even comment that they come from the same school of boxing, meaning they use similiar styles based on their heights and obvious power.
Now why this guy above me used the word "******" when the guy is Samoan is beyond me.I'll make one when I can find one I like.

I would say Tua fights more like Frazier than Tyson. Tyson had a lot of head movement and speed. Tua and Frazier kind of stalk you down and unload the left hook.
I agree with what was said about Ike. He had a great fight with Tua and he nearly decapitated Chris Byrd. After being knocked out with an unbelieveable uppercut, Byrd woke up and had no memory of being knocked out. They had stopped the fight but he thought he will still in it. Ike was 6'2" 245lbs and threw a ton of punches for a heavyweight. Awesome fighter whose career was cut short due to stupidity and most likely mental illness.

I plan to, my wife is from NZ and has half brothers that are half Maori. She says they're the same like the US and Canada are the same...

there's supposed to be a quote buried somewhere in Mormanism's grand
library that state's Samoans would rule the world, if not for gunpowder.
Not just David Tua. . .sole's in general, hit hard.
