photo by David Martin Warr/DKP - Samuel Peter: "I hit him [Maskaev] with one and I him with another. Then I crack him up. My jab was good and then I him in the head and break off his head. I knew he was strong so I was careful. I feel great. I could fight again tomorrow. I'm ready for anyone."
Oleg Maskaev: "He [Peter] didn't knock me out. He shook me and knocked me back and the referee did the right thing. He was hitting me with two many punches. I hurt him a few times, yes, but I wasn't able to finish him.
"I can't blame anybody. It was my fault. My trainers did a good job and I failed tonight.
"I will be back. My team and I will talk and if they want to make a few more fights we can do it.."
Nate Campbell: "I knew he couldn't take it. I knew I was the bigger puncher. I could out-box him or out-punch him. My team and I said all along we saw a lot of hype with Juan Diaz but we didn't see the substance. I said I was going to take him out into the deep water and drown him and that's what I did.
I better have won. I won the last five or six rounds. I won this for Don King. I will never disrespect him the way Juan Diaz did. There's a tattoo on my back that simply says, 'fighter' and that's what I am and what I proved tonight.
