Ex-champs Peter, Liakhovich get iced in Canada

Former WBC heavyweight champion Samuel Peter and former WBO heavyweight champion Siarhei Liakhovich were both halted inside the distance in their bouts on Saturday night at the Bell Centre in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

Unbeaten heavyweight Arslanbek Makhmudov (10-0, 10 KOs) scored a first round TKO over 39-year-old Peter (38-9, 31 KOs) in a bout for the NABF title. Makhmudov dropped Peter with a big right hand, then got the stop when he sent “The Nigerian Nightmare” reeling into the corner.

Heavyweight Simon Kean (18-1, 17 KOs) overwhelmed 43-year-old Liakhovich (27-8, 17 KOs) in round ten to claim the vacant WBC international silver title. Kean got a referee’s stoppage when he hurt “The White Wolf” a flurry of punches in the final stanza.

    • @Arturo, Because it doesn’t matter. Anything can happen, but the chances of them getting to a title fight are slim.

  • I can still remember when Sam Peters dropped Jeremy Williams with devastating looping hook KO! Boom! It was all over…..

    • I was just thinking of that the other day. And Liakhovich got iced by Briggs in a fight he was winning iirc … Sad that these warriors are still fighting. I hate this part of boxing.

  • Neither Peter or Liakhovich should be in the ring. If they were going to be on that card should have been fighting each other.
