Peter defeats Toney again!
Heavyweight Samuel Peter (28-1, 22 KOs) proved his previous win over James Toney (69-6-3, 43 KOs) last September wasn't a fluke as he won a wide unanimous decision over Toney on Saturday night at the Seminole Hard Rock LIVE Arena in Hollywood, FL. Peter staggered Toney in round one and floored him with a jab in round two. Toney connected with some flush right hands in the third. Good two-way action at the end of round four. Peter landed the most meaninful punches in the fifth as Toney's left eye began to close. Peter continued to punish Toney as the bout progressed, but the tough Toney continued to battle to the end. Peter ultimately prevailed by scores of 119-108, 118-110, 118-110. With the win, Peter earned a shot at WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev.
