World Boxing Council Announces Samuel Peter vs Oleg Maskaev

09.04.07 - The World Boxing Council officially announces today that the proposed fight between the WBC World heavy weight champion Oleg Maskaev and the former WBC world champion and current WBC Champion Emeritus Vitali Klitschko will not take place at this time, as the representatives of Maskaev , Klitschko and Samuel Peter did not reach an agreement to that effect..

Therefore, the WBC IS ORDERING AN IMMEDIATE MANDATORY DEFENSE OF Oleg Maskaev, USA-Russia , against official challenger Samuel Peter, from Nigeria, with a purse offer to be held on April 20th , if the free negotiations starting today, between the parties are not successful. Additionally, the WBC is also ordering that Vitali Klitschko shall be the next mandatory challenger in the heavyweight division.

The WBC offered every possible opportunity and all types of support for all the parties reaching an alternate agreement that would satisfy them all, but to no avail.

As previously noted , the WBC has found itself placed between competing claims for the position of next mandatory challenger in the division. With this action , the WBC has overseen the resolution of this controversy , and look forward to these great upcoming bouts for the WBC Heavyweight Championship of the World. Signed, José Sulaimán , president.
