On this week’s edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman continues our preview of the October 11 title fight between WBC heavyweight champion Samuel Peter (30-1, 23 KOs) and WBC heavyweight champion "emeritus" Vitali Klitschko (35-2, 34 KOs).
On a media conference call, we hear comments from Stacy McKinley, who trains Samuel Peter, about how his fighter has improved over the years, as well as comments from Vitali Klitschko, Sam Peter, and Bernd Boente, the KMG Managing Director who represents both Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko. This fight will take place in Berlin, Germany, and be televised on Showtime in the U.S. and on RTL in Germany.
Also on October 11, the long-awaited light heavyweight showdown between IBF champion Antonio Tarver (27-4, 19 KOs) and undefeated Chad Dawson (26-0, 17 KOs) will take place in Las Vegas. This will be shown live in the U.S. on Showtime.
On what became a very heated media conference call this past week, we hear comments from both Antonio Tarver and Chad Dawson.
We also begin our preview of the October 18 fight between Kelly Pavlik and Bernard Hopkins. We spoke with Jack Loew, who trains Pavlik, and Naazim Richardson, who trains Hopkins, at a recent New York new conference about this fight.
