Klitschko Peter 2 Is Official!

Its official.  Wladimir Klitschko (54-3, 48 KOs)  will defend his belts and will count as a IBF mandatory when he rematches Samuel Peter (34-3, 27 KOs) this coming September 11th in Frankfurt, Germany.  Peter signed the contract at the Top Rank headquarters today in Las Vegas and will leave this weekend to attend a press conference in Germany next week.

Wladimir Klitschko Quotes

"Peter was one of the toughest fights of my career, he is an extremely hard puncher and has improved a lot in his last fights. I know what to expect on September 11 and I will be well prepared..”

Sam Peter Quotes

"I had to wait a long time for the rematch. Now I will finish what I missed five years ago. This time I am going straight in and take him out. It’s not going to last real long.”

Bob Arum Quotes

"Peter came close last time. This time he has the experience that if he gets Klitschko in trouble again, he can finish him," Arum said. "If Peter happened to upset Klitschko that would really start a lot of talk in the heavyweight division."

Ivaylo Gotzev Quotes

*Peter's manager

"We're going [Thursday] morning to sign. We're good to go. My prediction has always been the same if we got a rematch. This time we're going to finish the job and not leave it to the judges' scorecard. We are going into the lion's den to take him out."

Bernd Boente Quotes

*Klitschko's manager

"This is a very interesting fight especially with the history of the first one in 2005. By the way, we have already sold 15,000 tickets in the Commerzbank Arena in Frankfurt without an opponent."

Let's hope this opponent actually shows up for the press conference!
