I didn't see the fight but Samuel Peter was knocked down 3 times by McCline, but won the decision because McCline punched himself out. I'm not a fan of Peters. He has mediocre boxing skills, and relies on the punch too much. His conditioning is suspect. I doubt he does much road work as his legs don't look very conditioned. Too large in the middle as well.

Only a matter of time before a better technical fighter comes along who can take a punch and deliver some serious damage to this stubby club fighter. Thoughts?

I've never been terribly impressed with Peters. His best attribute seems to be that he's the size of a Volkswagen.

The heavywieght division has a few decent fighters, but continually gives us fighters who have no weight limit to make, and who have little incentive to get in serious fighting condition.

Default He's beatable!

I'm also not all that impressed with Peters. Actually now I'm questioning his ability to take a hard bomb on the chin. He might be one of the top guys around right now. But in the rematch I think Klitscho has a good chance to stop him, but that depends how Peters approaches that fight. If I was in Peters corner I would tell him to jab his way in and immediately jump on Klitscho, and all out onslaught, Klitscho's chin isn't the best either and Klitscho seems to choke when guys jump on him.

I think Oleg maskeav will be stopped by Peters.

Overall Peters isn't the next Tyson, but he's one of the best we have right now.
