SecondsOut Radio: Samuel Peter, James Toney, Dan Goossen, Billy Blanks, Jose Antonio Rivera 

  • SecondsOut Radio with Eddie Goldman

  • On this week's edition of SecondsOut Radio, host Eddie Goldman previews the first major fight of 2007, the January 6 rematch between top heavyweight contenders Samuel Peter and James Toney.

    When Peter (27-1, 22 KOs), originally from Akwa Ibom, Nigeria, and Toney (69-5-3, 43 KOs), originally from Grand Rapids, Mich., first fought Sept. 2 in Los Angeles in a WBC eliminator, the 12-round bout ended in a split decision victory for Peter. Many observers, however, including most of the boxing media, felt that Toney had done more than enough to win. Because of the split decision and widespread controversy, the WBC agreed to an immediate rematch.

    Thus, the rematch, again a WBC heavyweight eliminator, will take place Saturday, Jan. 6, 2007, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Fla., and will be shown in the U.S. on Showtime. The winner is next supposed to get a title fight with WBC heavyweight champion Oleg Maskaev.

    We spoke with both Samuel Peter and James Toney as they prepared for this fight. We spoke with Toney's promoter Dan Goossen. We also spoke with fitness trainer Billy Blanks, best known for his Tae Bo workout programs, but who is also a former karate champion and Golden Gloves boxer who is helping Toney with his conditioning and fitness training. Plus, we spoke with WBA 154-pound champion Jose Antonio Rivera (38-4-1, 24 KOs) who will make the first defense of his belt against the unbeaten Travis Simms (24-0, 18 KOs) on this card.
