:boxing: Toney-Peter II: Enthusiasm and Trechery Again

Tonight marks the second bout between James "Lights Out" Toney and Samuel "The Nigerian Nightmare" Peter, a rematch to settle the controversy revolving aroung the decision victory by the latter. It was a tightly contested bout that tested the abilities, and further enlightened the weaknesses, of both fighters. Now that they have become familiar with each other and have gotten into much better shape this time around, it will be a very interesting fight to see. Both Toney and Peter are very motivated, but I think that the "Nightmare" will happen again for the veteren fighter. He will most likely be on the recieving end of some of those same power shots that pushed him backwards like before, only this time, Peter will be looking to actually KO him. In turn, this can also backfire badly, as Toney can and will easily exploit any sort of sloppiness or absence of defense (if Peter dwells on offense too much).

End Result: Peter via surprise KO in the later rounds (9-12); but if he is too offensive-minded, then Toney via (split?) majority decision.
