Former WBC heavyweight champion, Samuel Peter (34-5, 27 KOs) is hoping to re-enact his deadly form as he takes on Ron Aubrey (12-3, 12 KOs) in an eight-round non-title bout in Oklahoma City today.
The Nigerian last fought in 2010 when he was knocked out by Robert Helenius. The loss was his second straight and fourth in eight fights. The vicious knockout loss to Helenius led many to call for Peter’s retirement from boxing.
After representing Nigeria as a Super Heavyweight at the 2000 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece, Peter took the pro heavyweight division by storm and engineered a record of 24-0 with 21 knockouts before dropping a unanimous decision to WladimirKlitschko in 2005.
“I am happy to be back in boxing,” the 34-year-old Peter told FightSaga. “I will dedicate myself to winning the heavyweight championship once again. I’m ready to knock out anyone who stands in my way.”
“He’s got more experience,” admitted Aubrey, “but I’ve been in hundreds of brawls in my lifetime. I’m not intimidated by him. He’s the better boxer, but I’m the better brawler and that’s what kind of fight it’s going to be. I’ve already got 12 knockouts in the ring and Samuel Peter is going to be my lucky number 13.”
