There was an unusual second media teleconference call last week between top heavyweight contenders James Toney (69-4-2, 43 KOs) of Los Angeles and originally from Grand Rapids, Mich., and Samuel Peter (26-1, 22 KOs) of Las Vegas, Nevada, and originally from Akwaibom, Nigeria. These two fight Saturday, September 2, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in a fight which will be aired in the U.S. on Showtime. As on their previous conference call, the exchanges between these two were heated, which was either entertaining, disgraceful, a marketing ploy, or some combination of the above, depending upon your perspective. We are running an uncensored, unedited excerpt from that call with Toney and Peter, which some people may find offensive.
On that same Sept. 2 card are IBF featherweight champion Eric Aiken of Washington, D.C. (16-4-0, 12 KOs) and his challenger that night, Robert Guerrero of Gilroy, CA (18-1-1, 11 KOs). They were also on this conference call. The tone between these two couldn't have been more different from that between Toney and Peter. While both Aiken and Guerrero are confident that they will prevail Sept. 2, each man spoke humbly about himself and quite respectfully about his opponent. We also got a chance to speak with Aiken and Guerrero on that call.
