From Mike Smith: Former WBC heavyweight champion Samuel Peter will Soon Be fighting next month against little known journeyman Mario Heredia (15-6-1, 13 KOs) in an eight round Competition on April 13 at a non-televised Part of the Claressa Shields vs. Christina Hammer Conflict card on Showtime at the Boardwalk Hall, at Atlantic City, Nj.
Peter (37-6, 30 KOs) has the punching capability to provide any volatility from the branch issues if they can land his shots. He lacks is stamina, defensive abilities, height, reach and the childhood to get the job contrary to the much greater heavy weight. At 6’2″, Peter is marginally short for its heavy weight division. There are some heavyweights that elevation which may excel, however, perhaps not many.
Peter’s weight would be the central matter. He weighed 271 pounds for his fight with Kubrat Pulev, also 262 pounds for his last fight in February. Contemplating Peter’s most useful weight has been at the low 240s, he’s carrying around a lot of fat for him personally to be one factor at the branch. If Peter might get with a great trainer who could get the job done on his weight, he may possibly be in a position to make a run at a name. But, you must question that’s definitely going to happen now in his career.
Even the 38-year-old Peter is making his second fight of his come back later returning into the ring February in stopping journeyman Gerardo Escobar (2-22, 1 KOs) at the very first round at Tijuana, Mexico. Before that fight, Peter, nick named, “The Nigerian Nightmare,” had been action for over 2 yrs since his 3rd round stoppage loss to Kubrat Pulev at December 2016.
It’s unknown that which Peter is finding its way right back for. If the goal is for Peter to get a crack at a world title, then he’s likely to must be matched against weaker opposition. It was a mistake for Peter to confront Pulev. This has been a bad match up for Peter. Maybe if he was in his prime of his career in 2004 and 2005, if he almost knocked out Wladimir Klitschko. Peter was a dangerous puncher back afterward, and a guy which has been dreaded. After Peter’s round stoppage loss to Vitali Klitschko at 2008, his career floundered from that point on.
Peter shouldn’t even have some issues beating the 26-year-old Heredia. There’s a difference in pedigree involving the two heavyweights. As long as Peter doesn’t petrol outside in this fight, he should easily win. Heredia likely won’t even hang around long enough to examine Peter’s pipes.
