Sam PeterNew York, September 5— Photo by Wray Edwards / ESB - On the heels of his stunning victory over James Toney on Saturday night in Los Angeles, Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter has his eyes set on WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev. “We want Maskaev, now,” said Dino Duva, Peter’s promoter. “I will be contacting Dennis Rappaport (Maskaev’s promoter) to begin negotiations immediately. Maskaev was obligated by the WBC to fight Toney in his next bout after defeating Rahman. Now that Samuel beat Toney, we expect Oleg to honor that obligation to Sam.

“Sam is ready to fight Maskaev immediately, and fighting him for the WBC heavyweight title is the only thing on Sam’s mind right now,” added Duva. “We want to make this fight sometime before the end of the year.

“With his masterful performance against Toney, Peter once again proved that he is the most exciting heavyweight in the world, and the future of the division,” wrapped up Duva.
