Samuel Peter Workout Quotes
A public workout was held at Madison Square Garden featuring hard-hitting, recently crowned WBC Interim Heavyweight Champion Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare’’ Peter (28-1, 22 KOs) who will be defending his title against Jameel “Big Time’’ McCline (38-7-3, 23 KOs) Saturday, Oct. 6, on Showtime live at 10 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast). Here are some of the notable quotes stemming from the session.
“McCline does not have a chance against me, but he is a good fighter, a tough opponent.
“I will knock out McCline quick, that’s what I see.
“Real heavyweight champions fight. That is why I am not waiting for Maskaev. I am putting my interim on the line.
“Tick…tick…tick. The clock is ticking on all the heavyweights who don’t want to fight. I’m a real fighter. I could have waited to face Maskaev to protect my title. But I want to fight and that is what champions do.
“I don’t have a problem fighting anyone. Even if the devil comes up and wants to fight, I’m ready.
“If I can fight anyone, it would be Wladamir Klitschko. If he stands up after I knock him down this time, I will retire him.
