Wladimir Klitschko is now the number one contender for the WBO or IBF heavyweight belts
Wladimir Klitschko is now the number one contender for the WBO or IBF heavyweight belts after a points victory over Samuel "Nigerian Nightmare" Peter in Atlantic City on Saturday night, according to his camp. Even though he was sent to the canvas on three occasions, all three judges scored the 12-round bout 114-111 in favor of the 6' 6" former WBO champion from Ukraine, thereby putting an end to Peter's undefeated status. The Klitschko team now plans to hold a non-title 10-round bout in December in Germany, as part of preparations for an assault on either the WBO or IBF title at the end of winter 2006. Although he said he was not bothered which belt he would go for, 29-year-old Klitschko (44-3, 40 KOs) admitted that he would relish a rematch with WBO World Champion Lamon Brewster (32-2, 28 KOs) after failing to take back his crown against him in a fifth round technical knockout in 2004. As he refuses to fight older brother Vitali for the WBC belt, the other possibility would be a fight against IBF champion Chris Byrd. Klitschko said it was good to be back in contention in the heavyweight division and he hoped he had proved wrong some of the critics, who had said he could not go the distance in a 12-round fight.
