29.06.05 – SHOWTIME will set off fireworks July Fourth weekend with a spectacular heavyweight showdown. Featuring the hottest fighter in the division, explosive Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter will attempt to continue his ascension toward the top of the heavyweight ranks when he returns to the network on Saturday, July 2, at 9 p.m. ET/PT
(tape delayed on the west coast).
Touted by many as the future of the division, he possesses perhaps the most devastating knockout power in the heavyweight ranks today. Now, the United States
Boxing Association/North American Boxing Federation (USBA/NABF) champion Peter
will try to tame “The Bull” when he battles North American Boxing Association (NABA) Heavyweight Champion Taurus Sykes on SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING.
All three titles will be on the line in the 12-round bout presented by Duva Boxing from the Reno Events Center in Reno, Nevada.
“I am motivated for all my fights, but this guy talks so much, I am even more motivated. I will take great pleasure in closing his mouth once and for all Ôáõ and doing it in a good, convincing manner.
“I do not think Sykes knows what he has got himself into. But he will find out July 2 on SHOWTIME.
“My mindset is the same. In a few days, it will be time to go to my office and go to work. I never allow myself to feel pressure. I do not underestimate any opponent. I do not look past anybody. I take my fights one at a time.
“You cannot get to two, if you do not start with one. And, right now, Taurus Sykes is the one.”
“I am calm and relaxed and really ready to go. This is not just another fight for me. I always train hard, but I have never trained for a fight as hard as I have for this one. I am in the best shape of my life.
“I am going to box and dominate with the jab, but I am not here to run. At the same time, I am not going to just stand there and fight Peter’s fight either. He is strong, but he does not know how to box at all.
“I am a wonderful boxer with good instincts. I know I have to fight smart, especially in the first four rounds, which I know are going to be tough. But I have trained for everything and nothing he does will surprise me. He has made a huge mistake by fighting me.”
