Peter-Williams: Tension rising!

from www.fightnews.com

Tempers flared between two heavyweight bangers destined to collide Saturday in Las Vegas, on the blockbuster Castillo vs. Casamayor show’s undercard. Jeremy “Half Man Half Amazing” Williams, 41-4-1 (36), and Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter, 20-0 (17) traded threats and insults during a conference to hype their upcoming showdown for the NABF Heavyweight championship. "I’ve fought 20 Samuel Peters," said Williams. "What he does, I’ve seen before. I can get 20 sparring partners to do exactly what he does." Peter responded, "You’re saying that because you watched me on tape?” countered Peter. “You never met Samuel Peter. You know what? I promise you I’m going to eat you alive."

Duva Boxing is proud to announce that three of Duva Boxing's newest signups and brightest young prospects who will now be fighting under their promotional banner will be putting their impressive skills on display again soon, as heavyweights Brian Minto, and Mike Marrone, as well as welterweight Raymond Biggs Jr. are all scheduled for upcoming appearances.

Legendary trainer/manager Lou Duva says he is very impressed with the trio. "These three kids are the kind of up-and-coming fighters that make me excited again to be in the game. I'm seeing the kinds of things in the gym that I've seen from all our legendary champions. Dedication. Toughness. And a level of natural talent you are either born with or you aren't. And only a very few select boxers are."


Duva Thankful for Sho-Box Success

07.08.04 - Promoter Dino Duva wishes to thank everyone involved with making Thursday’s Duva Boxing debut “Sho-Box – The Next Generation” broadcast a rousing success. “Hard Knocks at the Hard Rock,” at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Florida, was co-promoted by Warrior’s Boxing and featured power-punching future heavyweight star Samuel “The Nigerian Nightmare” Peter in the main event and all-action welterweight prospect Juan Urango in the co-feature.

“Samuel Peter passed the toughest test of his career with flying colors by pitching a virtual shutout,” said Duva of his fighter’s unanimous 10-round decision victory. “I am very pleased he proved so dominant against a very good and very tough Jovo Pudar. He’s only 23 years old and is still learning, but we expect him to be ready for any heavyweight in the world in the near future."





September 15, 2004. Former amateur stand-out , Brooklyn’s Raymond Biggs, Jr. entered the pro ranks in spectacular fashion by stopping Batyr Zakrov in the opening round of their four round bout last night at the Atlantic Oceana in Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. Biggs repeatedly scored with tremendous jabs and body shots, dropping him in the first round. Zakrov’s left eye was cut the right beginning to close until his corner mercifully stopped the bout between rounds.


Biggs, a 2 time New York Golden Gloves Champion and Wisconsin Golden Champion, recently inked a promotional agreement with New Jersey’s Duva Boxing. Managed by Hall of Fame icon, Lou Duva and his dad, Raymond Sr., the exciting welterweight is trained by one of the best in the business, Tommy Brooks.


“This kid reminds me of a young Pernell Whitaker – he has the speed, the moves, he’s a tremendous body puncher, and he has the heart, “ stated manager Lou Duva. Brooks added, “plus he can crack ! I think he’s can go right into 6 rounders, and move up the ladder real quick, this kid is so slick ! We didn’t have a whole lot of time together training, but Lou and I were very impressed with what what we saw.”


Biggs is expected to be back in the ring sometime in October.
