IBF Orders Samuel Peter vs Wladimir Klitschko

18.07.05 - Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter’s manager, Ivalyo Gotzev, is declaring that the “moment of truth has arrived,” for a top contender to step up and face his man, now that the IBF has ordered a box-off between Peter, 24-0 (21), and Wladimir Klitschko, 44-3 (40), to determine its new number-one contender (on the heels of last week’s announcement that the WBC has also ordered a box-off between Peter and its top contender Sinan Samil Sam)..

“We want to thank both organizations for recognizing Samuel Peter and giving him the opportunity to become their top contender. We’re looking at all options to see who will step up to the plate first. Samuel is ready to fight either guy, so it’s time to put up or shut up.”)

Gotzev says that Team Peter is overjoyed with the developments of the past couple weeks. “This is a great moment in Samuel’s career and the outcome of this is going to determine the future of the heavyweight division. All the hard work is finally paying off. He’s ready for anybody. Now is the moment of truth.”
