Klitschko makes his boxing comeback by attempting to wrest the WBC Heavyweight title from Samuel Peter.

What are your predictions?

I hope that Samual Peter wins and i think he will. But if Vitali does then surely the brothers are gonna have to battle it out.

Why would they have to fight each other? If neither fighter challenges the other, then who is to say they have to fight each other?

They dont have to but i think most people will get on there backs about it. Plus if they want to unify the weight the they will have to.

I'm going against the odds for a Vitali UD. I know he's been out for 4 years but it's just a gut feeling I have.

Hopefully Klitschko gets sparked - he's old and been out of the ring for years. If Peter is any good he'll stop him.

I doubt the fight will happen - Vitali's back will go before it does.

David Haye knocks them both out.

Peter has never done much to impress me. What does it say about the "top" heavyweights when I am picking a guy who's been away for four years to beat one of the division's top stars. I see this fight going much the same way as Peter's fight with Wlad, except I have one of those gut feelings too and that is that Peter will get knocked down or out. Either way, there's no chance the brothers fight each other.

Klitschko-Peter: Shocker as Vitali is The Betting Favorite

By T.K. Stewart

In a surprising development, Vitali Klitschko, who hasn't fought in nearly four years, has opened in some sportsbooks as the betting favorite over WBC heavyweight titlist Samuel Peter.

Both Klitschko and Peter were at Gallagher's Steakhouse in New York City on Wednesday to formally announce their upcoming fight at the O2 World Arena in Berlin, Germany on October 11th. Klitschko appeared relaxed, fit and confident whereas Peter looked to be carrying around extra pounds and was described by one observer as being "portly". Klitschko, a towering figure at 6'7" tall and 250 pounds, looked straight down at Peter who stands just a shade over 6'0" in height when the two squared off for the cameras.

As it stands right now, odds can be found in Klitschko's favor, which is shocking considering he hasn't fought in what will be 46 months, or since December 2004. During the time Klitschko has been away from the game, Peter, 27, has racked up nine wins against one loss while adding the USBA, NABF and WBC titles to his mantle. 'Big Sam' has a record of 30-1 (23)KO and suffered his only loss against Vitali's younger brother, Wladimir, in 2005.

"I know the fight will be very interesting," says Klitschko, a former WBO and WBC titlist, who turned 37 last month. "Many people, skeptical people, say that because I've been more than three years outside of the ring that I can't win. Don't worry, I didn't lose my skills in three years."

Klitschko, who has been declared a WBC Champion Emeritus, and retired after suffering a string of injuries, has a record of 35-2(34)KO and is predicting that he will win by knockout. Vitali claims his motivation in returning to the ring is to realize a dream of he and his brother to hold heavyweight titles simultaneously.

For his part, Peter will be training in Fryeburg, Germany after having spent the past couple of months working out with his trainer Stacey McKinley in Nigeria. "I'm the real heavyweight champion of the world, the true one," said Peter. And then he directed his comments toward Klitschko.

"I've got a question for you. Who did you ever beat? You never beat anybody to become the heavyweight champion of the world. I beat a champion to become a champion, so stop calling yourself a two-time heavyweight champion," said Peter.

Whatever the case, the opening odds are validation for those that have criticized Peter's recent performances. Some have said that the 'Nigerian Nightmare' has not been in top shape and were surprised to see him struggle in successive fights against James Toney and Jameel McCline. Peter, however, dismisses the critics. "I'm going to knock him out, trust me," he said.

LOL, and whom did Peter beat? After his defeat at the hands of Wlad:

Robert Hawkings...Robert who? Julius Long, a no-record fighter. He beat McCline, and just barely, almost getting knocked out himself. He finally beat a washed up, old Maskaev who wasn't even that great of a fighter in his youth. The best he has done was against an old Toney, and those wins by Peter weren't even that decisive.

PETER KOS KLITSCKO IN ONE!!!

lets see how many hate replies I get for that lol.
I'd LOVE to see that. Peter has to keep his title, otherwise the division won't be unified till the next decade... Haven't had an undisputed Heavyweight Champion in 8 years, I'm pretty sick of it...

It's VITALI we're talking about here, not his china chin brother. The only way he will get stopped is by cuts or tiredness from being out of action so long.

This fight is on October 11th, not the 4th. Just thought maybe a mod would like to change the "upcoming event" section at the top of the website. Having said that......V will KO Peter in 10.
