The Skinny On Sam Peter: Workout Photos, Plus One ("Before") Victory Pic

peter vs toney02.01.07 - Workout Photos: Ed Keenan; "Before" Victory Photo: TOM CASINO/SHOWTIME: Do not expect to see as much of Samuel Peter this Saturday, Jan. 6, when he fights James Toney on SHOWTIME at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the west coast). Peter, you will notice (please see attached pictures), has lost a considerable amount of weight. He tipped the scales at a career-high 257 pounds before he won a controversial decision over Toney in their exciting September 2006 slugfest on SHOWTIME..

But in recent weeks Peter has quietly and diligently been peeling off excess poundage as he prepares for Saturday's 12-round rematch at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. "This is the best and hardest training camp of my career and I am solid as a rock,'' Peter said. "Much has been made of Toney's new, super training regimen and supposed low calorie diet, but I don't care and it won't matter what he weighs. "I have been running four miles every day in addition to my usual hard, gym workouts. I am in the shape of my life. Toney will pay the price on Jan. 6.''

Note: In non-weighty matters, Peter, at 26, is the youngest heavyweight in the consensus Top 10; Toney, conversely, is the oldest at 38. A quick rundown: Wladimir Klitschko 30 years old; Oleg Maskaev 37 (born 3-2-69); Samuel Peter 26; James Toney 38 (8-24-68); Shannon Briggs 35; Sergei Liakhovich 30; Lamon Brewster 33; Nicolay Valuev - 33; Ruslan Chagaev 28; John Ruiz 35..
