Arum: Peter ready for Wlad

Bob Arum said today that IBF #2-ranked Samuel ‘The Nigerian Nightmare’ Peter is available and ready to take on IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko. Klitschko has not defended his IBF world title against a mandatory challenger since April, 2007. Alexander Povetkin is ranked IBF #1 and is next in line. “If Povetkin doesn’t take the fight, Klitschko is obligated to defend against Samuel Peter,” Arum said. “We plan to pursue that on behalf of Samuel.” Peter has a ring record of 34-3 with 27 knockouts. There has been speculation of WBA champ David Haye paying step-aside money to Povetkin to clear the way for a unification fight against Klitschko.
