The American boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard says it's hard to pick a winner in next month's heavyweight bout between New Zealanders David Tua and Shane Cameron.

Leonard won multiple world titles from lightweight to welterweight though the 1980s and has been in Hamilton helping promote a bout being billed the Fight of the Century.

He says the biggest issue for Cameron his inexperience and susceptibility to cuts while Tua's is his age and lack of recent fights.

The fight's at Mystery Creek on October 3.
