IBF, WBO and IBO World Heavyweight Champion Wladimir Klitschko and challenger Samuel Peter of Nigeria attended a press conference today at the Commerzbank-Arena in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Klitschko will defend his titles against Peter on September 11.

Wladimir Klitschko: “Peter is very experienced and a very good puncher. He has improved a lot in his last fights. I will be well prepared and definetely not underestimate him. I am happy to have a true opponent now and not somebody who just fights in his own dreams. Povetkin does not count anymore.”

Samuel Peter: “I do not want to say a lot today. I will let my fists speak on September 11. You will see a new Sam Peter!”

In Germany, the fight will be broadcast live and exclusively on RTL. ESPN will show the fight in the US. Tickets via www.eventim.de and the hotline +49- (0)1805-57 00 00. Prices start at 24 Euro.
