02.11.06 - By Scott Frake: David Tua's (45-3-1, 39 KO's) bad luck continued recently, when it was revealed that his latest opponent, Abraham Okine, failed his medical eye exam, making it necessary for Tua to find yet another fighter for tonight's bout at the Roseland Ballroom, in New York. At this point, it appears that 36-year-old Maurice Wheeler (10-8-1) will get the shot at Tua.
