With his sensational knockout power, Samuel Peter, "The Nigerian Nightmare", is one of the few heavyweights that boxing fans can get excited about. The heavy fisted contender has proven his ability to come back from a disappointing loss following a title eliminator against Wladimir Klitschko last year and Peter is yet again on the hunt to gain a crack at genuine world honors. Samuel was kind enough to take time out of his busy schedule to discuss his career and bright future, only on SaddoBoxing.com
