Klitschko Peter Final Press Conference

Monday was the final press conference for IBF, WBO, IBO, and Ring heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (57-3, 48 KOs) and former WBC champion Sam Peter (34-3, 27 KOs) ahead of their championship fight and rematch from their 2005 fight this Saturday, September 11th at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt, Germany.
Peter celebrated his 30th birthday on the day of the press conference and was presented with a cake made out in the design of of boxing ring, and a belt by Klitschko. I'm not sure what the belt part was about but I think it might have been a jab at Peter regarding to not getting his belts, and/or possibly in reference to the situation in his brothers press conference with Peter in which Peter tore away the belt from Vitali's hands.

Klitschko Quotes

“Peter is very fast, powerful and a great puncher. I love to be challenged and I am very much motivated for this fight. Each round I will try to knock Peter out”

"Anything can happen in the ring. A knockout can happen every second. Wladimir tried to provoke Peter by saying, "This is your special day. That's why I'll let you touch the belt and let you hold them, but only today and that's about it. Wladimir held the IBF and WBO belts right before Peter's face. Peter said nothing.

Peter Quotes

“I am happy to be in Germany in again. It will be an excellent, classy fight.”

"I'll give the answers in the ring. I'm going to let my fist speak in the ring and I'll take the belts. This fight is going to be classic."

"I can't wait, and I don't want to say alot because you will see it all in the ring. Watch out and don't miss it. Thank you everyone and especially God. In 2005 I was doing well but people thought my career was over - I knew that this was not the end, it is not going to be over! I have trust in God and I am back, I'm really happy about it. September is my month and it's my moment especially for my career".
