Power-punching heavyweight title challenger Samuel "The Nigerian Nightmare" Peter remained calm during the press conference and the open training sessions for his Saturday rematch against IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko - even when normally reserved Klitschko taunted him with his championship belts and his antagonistic remarks.
"I hear and see what they're trying to do, I just hope he comes to fight and not wrestle" said Peter.
But Peter's manager, Ivaylo Gotzev, says Klitschko's unusually belligerent demeanor at the conference is a sure sign.
"He's definitely uptight. I've known Wladimir for 15 years and he's starting to realize who will be in the other corner come Saturday night. That's why he's not himself this week. He's already having cold and sweaty Nigerian Nightmares!"
Peter vs. Klitschko II will be held Saturday in Frankfurt, Germany at the Commerzbank Arena.
