Peter Klitschko On For October 11th

It's official. It's been signed. Former WBC champion and current WBC emeritus champion Vitali Klitschko will challenge Sam Peter for the WBC strap on October 11th, 2008. There are 2 locations competing to host the event. One from Abuja, Nigeria, and one in Berlin, Germany.

Also unofficially, there may be a Klitschko brother doubleheader assuming how well Povetkin does this coming Saturday the 19th against Taurus Sykes. Wladimir seemed like he made it through last Saturday's fight with Thompson fairly easily so it wouldn't be hard for him to make a fight by that date if he wanted to.

Sam Peter had a few things to say regarding his official shot at Vitali Klitschko. Here's what he had to say:

"I've been waiting a long time for revenge on the first giant (Vitali's brother, IBF and WBO Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko) but now I get to knock them both out!."

"He has already run from me many times, but now he has signed the contract. This time he must finally take his punishment like a man or get out of boxing forever.."

"Come and get the punishment you deserve so I can get your little brother next."

Peter's manager, Ivaylo Gotzev also had a few things to share...

"This is the first half of Operation Giant Killer because we're going to take out Wladimir's brother before we settle the score with him. Vitali has been standing in Samuel's way for a long time, but now we've got the opportunity to send both of boxing's giants home with a beating."

"This is one of the only meaningful fights in boxing at the moment. And Vitali has been standing in the way of even bigger business with his brother. Hopefully he will show up this time, so that the heavyweight division can settle things the right way and crown one true champion."

Vitali has been running from Peter? Ok don't know where Sam is coming from there. Vitali came out of retirement to face Maskaev and had to step aside to let Peter fight Maskaev. Peter just defeated Maskaev for the WBC strap not too long ago, and Vitali has been in negotiations with Peter's side ever since.
