Peter got crushed

by motorone (U13348432) 12 October 2008
comment on the article

The return of Vitali Klichko was a legalised mugging!
Samual Peters had no replay and was so overmatched from a phyiscal point of view it was like a middleweight against a heavyweight.

The jab, jab, jab, booming right was a combination that Peter ate all night; it was clear from the opening bell the Nigerian would be beaten and beaten well.

This morning his manager is claiming his corner pulled him out but there was a mic in the corner and as the trainer was telling him to come forward and throw caution to the wind, it was SP that said he wasn't coming out again. I don't blame him, it was a fruitless task.

So now we have two brothers ruling the heavyweight division and based on the last couple of outings for Wladimir there can be no doubt who the superior fighter is. WBC is the top belt and the right member of the Klichko clan is wearing it.

Hayemaker... London does have a point re modern heavies... its an argument that's raged since the 80's. Bigger guys are slower but stronger and can tire you out with their wrestling. Hmmn its not much of a scoop is it.

--------------

Might not be much of a scoop, but its still a fact that most people seem to forget. I.e that the top of the tree of modern boxers are in the slower stronger mould because it is more effective, not because there are no flashy boxers around anymore. There are actually a few here and there, thy just don't do very well these days.

True its often over-looked by people, but it is possible to be big and demonstrate some skills, not many of today's lot seem to manage that imo.

Anyway, here's hoping your boy Haye can buck the trend of the super-sized heavy.

Unfortunately, I can't see him beating vitali. I was quite confident as long as vitali was retired, but against him a lazy defence and suspect chin is always likely to be exposed, no matter how much power you have behind it.

Theres only 1 fight that Klitschko can have to prove themselves and thats against Hayes..... Hayes is calling them out and they seem to be running away from it.

There is no running now for the brothers because the amount of money that this could generate for this fight could be huge. and Klitschkos get to prove it how good they really are.

Klitschko wants to fight Lewis but thats not gonna happen. Hayes is the new man in heavy weight boxing and I can't see anyone coming close to him.

** Where the haye is haye at?

Oh, that's right, he's a parttime video maker and underwear model. Yeah, little chap used to box, and made splash back when, but you gots to step into the ring to be champ, otherwise I could become a video maker too.

Haye has never responded to my challenges to him, so he must be ducking me. Well, next summer I'll be doing a tour of Bristol's gyms, searching for the biggest and greatest legendary prospects of Bristol and will be calling out Haye at every stop, so keep yer peepers open for the utube release, coming soon......cracker

Well, apparently the fight has been signed: I dont think Haye CHOSE Vitali as such, I think he was forced into it.

Then he acts as if he wanted this fight.

I do not think it will happen in England, if it does, it is because Klitscho wants to win and defend titles in major cities in 3 countries- London, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Berlin etc.

Haye has a brief, fleeting, early, punchers chance.

After that he gets the proverbials beat out of him.
