Default Sam Peter vs. Jameel McCline is Official!

As previously reported on other threads here at ESB. Just thought I would put it on the front page.

Why? McCall has the chin to hang with Peter and has beaten some decent fighters in the past 5 or 6 years (Diaz, Sam, Akinwande, Saleta) which is better than what Briggs has done lately. Not to mention the fact that McCall fights like he actually wants to be in the ring whereas McCline is a giant who fights like a mouse. This is not a better fight than Peter/McCall but this is what we're getting so this is what I'll watch.

While McCline is a bonafide top 10 contender who is quicker than Peter in almost every way and has much more refined skill. Trust me this is going to be a much better scrap than people give it credit for.
McCall gets credit because he should have been gone years ago but is still competitive and always comes into fights in shape. Throw in an iron chin and you've got a handful for anybody.

McCline is a bonafide top 10 contender??? Stick to the other weight classes cuz u don't know shit about the heavyweights. Wlad, Peter, Oleg, Byrd, Ibragimov, Chagaev, Valuev, Dimitrenko, Virchis, Brock, Lyhakovich, and shot Brewster are all better than McCline so how does he make the top 10? By the way, McCline is 0-4 against that list. Peter is gonna win this fight and easily I might add.

How is this great?
A champion stepping to the side, getting stripped from his titles and Peter jumps in and takes it, "defends" against Jameel McCline who does not deserve it? Well, Peter will knock him out and people will be praising Peter as if he beaten the #1 guy out there.
I'm not nagging on Peter because he obviously has nothing to do with this, but heavyweight is getting worse and worse, Ruiz, Rahman and now Peter gets their titles outside the ring, it's a shame, it's not great.

Something is better than nothing. Could have been no fight on Oct 6th and peter having to wait another 2 months to fight someone else who then pulls out with a heart injury.

Peter is not the one pulling out of fights. He has been getting royale screwed since he defeated Toney the first time. People are just happy he is able to get a fight.

Yeah, Peter deserves credit.
I'm sad for him.. he has to take the belt outside the ring, it's not the way he wanted I assume.

McCline will be banged out in brutal fashion.

best of a bad situation i guess. At least mccline should be in shape seeing as he was training for the klitschko bout.

Same by TKO but I would be pretty happy for McCline who has been on the outside looking in for most of his career to get something meaningful. A win in this case, since I don't think he's going to make a lot of money.

Well i absolutely agree. McClien also has a good chin and is still a verry good fighter, maybe still Top10. Much better than Golota or McCall these days. And i want to see McCall vs. Gomez.

Peter only gets the belt if maskaev doesnt fight him in the next 90 days if im informed rightly.

That would be quiet impressive. McCline was stopped 2 times, first in his second pro fight when he fought a guy with a 6-0-0 record (remember McCline had no big amateur-career) and the other one was against Wladimir Klitschko in round 10. Valuev doesnt count cause it was a serious knee in jury which stopped McCline, not Valuev.
This fight COULD go the distance, at least i would not be suprised if it does.
