Sam Peter: "I'll Chop Down That Ukranian Tree, Klitschko"

New York — Immediately following the September 4th press conference in Berlin to announce his October 11th heavyweight title showdown with Vitali Klitschko, WBC Champion Samuel Peter (30-1, 23 KOs) set up training camp in Freiburg, Germany. The "Nigerian Nightmare" has enjoyed a wonderful month-long camp and is in tremendous shape as he winds down and readies to depart for Berlin.

Peter is thrilled to have had the opportunity to train in the southern German town found in the middle of the Black Forest. "I love it here in Germany. The people and the scenery have been beautiful," said Peter. "I intend on beating Vitali in his own backyard and to show that I am the true champion I decided to train in his backyard. No matter where this fight is I will not be defeated. I hope his brother Wladimir is in attendance to watch him get knocked out."

"I've been chopping down trees in the Black Forest in preparation for Vitali Klitschko," added Peter. "On October 11th, I am going to chop down a Ukrainian tree named Vitali."

"Sam knows this is the toughest fight of his career and I have never seen him more focused on a fight. He wanted to train in Klitschko's backyard to make a real statement," said Peter's promoter Dino Duva, president of Duva Boxing.

Peter is joined in Germany by his training team and excellent sparring partners.

[QUOTE=King Jaffe Joffer;4137278]I disagree, Lewis was coming on late[/QUOTE] In that case it is YOU who needs to study up a bit before scattering your opinions as facts, instead of aimless conjectures. Klitschko won the last 2 rounds on the…

[QUOTE=Kilrain;4137569]Klitschko is getting killed. Peter is a monster. Klitschko ain't fought in 4 years, and even when he was active was too upright, too immobile, had too poor a defence for this new physically fitter, more focused Samuel Peter. The…
