Klitschko Peter Predictions

Samuel Peter vs Vitali Klitschko: Pre-fight predictions and preview with some of boxing's top journalist and personalities including Steve Farhood (Showtime) and Tim Smith (NY Daily News). Notice the stare down at the beginning of the video at the Peter vs Klitschko Press Confernece in NYC. Looks like Peter might already be regretting having to face Vitali in the ring.

My Prediction

I believe this fight will resemble Vitali's fight with Kirk Johnson or Danny Williams. It all comes down to how well Peter can handle Vitali's punching power. I believe his ability to take a punch has diminished quite a bit since Peter fought with Vitali's brother Wladimir. So because of this I believe it will resemble more of the Johnson fight with Klitschko just landing at will what he wants until Peter folds. But, if Peter can take his power, the fight will go longer but not any lnoger than the Williams fight. Danny has a much better chin than Peter. But like Danny and Kirk, Sam Peter has similar speed and stature, thus why I believe the fight will resemble one of those fights.

My prediction assumes Vitali is healthy enough to make the fight and doesn't get any injuries. According to Vitali he is in good shape. Hopefully this is true so this fight can take place. Good luck to Vitali on his comeback fight and on the Klitschko's dream of holding heavyweight belts at the same time.

What do you think?
