Sam Peter's Optional Defense July 12th

On the same day that Wladimir Klitschko faces WBO mandatory challenger Tony "The Tiger" Thompson, Sam Peter will face an optional defense against either Matt Skelton Or Audley Harrison.

A fight between Sam Peter and Vitali Klitschko has already been approved for October, so the optional defense is supposed to keep Sam Peter in shape and should be against someone who shouldn't pose any problems. But, Peter shouldn't take either one of these guys lightly. They can punch, and due to Peters sub par defense, anyone who can punch could pose some problems as long as they don't get KO'd 1st. Matt Skelton is the kind of fighter with a good beard and who can bang. So, if this ends up being the fight, I wouldn't be surprised to see an upset.

This is what promoter Frank Warren had to say:

"I've agreed terms with Don King for WBC heavyweight champion Sam Peter to fight at London's O2 Arena on July 12th. In the opposite corner will be either Matt Skelton or Audley Harrison. I'm holding talks with all parties over the weekend and will make an announcement on Monday.."
