Agreed, McCline at least tends to be a fairly durable guy so a knockout by Peter would be valuable.

I'm just glad they've been able to get a fight sorted for this date...bad enough that Maskaev-Peter fell through, if there would've been no fight at all and the card collapsed it would've been a big waste.

I'd rather someone like McCall or Virchis had a shot but I appreciate the time issues involved here. So it's not too bad as a short-term deal.

I'd be happier still if they didn't make Peter interim champion yet and had this fight for the vacant WBC title, though!

Anyways!

I like Sam to win here by late stoppage. McCline is durable for a bit, but tends to get exhausted against big punchers and guys who can get to his chin. Brock was a bit too small and same goes for Byrd.

Expect McCline to be VERY timid going into this one. He'll get anxious and gas out by the 10th.

If Sam drops him in the first 3-4 rounds, consider it a statement made.

Mccline is a solid fighter who dont go down easy, but in this fight I think that will change. Peter will come out bombs away on Mccline missing most of his punches and connecting with a few, I see Peter hurting Mccline early but not able to finish him till late in the fight. Peter wins by 10th round TKO.

Peter will beat McCline setting up a unification bout in '08 between him and Vlad that will be the best fight the division has seen in years.
Peter and his people "honarable"?...What a joke. Duva, Don King, and Honrable cannot be used in the same sentince. Duva and Don King will keep picking lower level fighters for Peter to fight now that he has a belt. They will NEVER face Klitschko because they know Peter cannot beat him. They will pick "B" or "C" fighters so they can hold the belt for as long as they can.

GO McCline!!!!!!!

Jameel McCline 's record or skill set in no way shape or form suggest that he is a better quality fighter than either McCall or Golota. Unline McCline, Golota has NEVER lost to a bum or anyone outside of the top ten ranking, in his entire career. Let's recount Jameel's illustrious record of losing in chronological order, shall we:

Gary Bell 6-0-0,
Greg Pickrom
6-1-1,
Wladimir Klitschko
39-1-0,
Chris Byrd
37-2-1,
Calvin Brock 24-0-0,
Zuri Lawrence 19-10-4
Nikolay Valuev 45-0-0

To suggest that McCline is a better quality opponent than either Golota or McCall is an insult to the truth.

McCline on the other hand was considered a credible opponent for former heavyweight champ Vitali Klitschko, but now he's somehow not good enough for the unbeatable Samuel Peter? Please. Jameel is fighting as good as ever right now and should give Peter a good challenge throughout, and he would do a lot more than simply go rounds liek McCall, he'd box and move and give the plodding Sam some trouble trying to tack him down.
Ok u said in ur other post that McCline is a bonafide top 10 fighter yet I easily gave u 12 other fighters who are better (4 of whom own victories against Jameel).

Now u bring up the Vitali fight. Do u even know why McCline was chosen for that fight? Because he's a name fighter who is good enough to give Vitali rounds but not good enough nor tough enough to actually beat him. It wasn't a title fight either by the way and the Peter fight is. McCline lucked out to get this fight.

Your other statement that McCline is fighting as good as he ever has right now is utterly ridiculous and groundless. He beat Terry Smith. Big deal. Rob Calloway just pulled that off recently. McCline also lost to Zuri Lawrence not too long ago. Like I said, stick to the lower weight classes. Leave the heavyweight talk to the people who are familiar with it.

It was a UD too, so everyone was in agreement that night. It wasn't even a close fight judging by the cards: 97-93, 97-93, 90-100.

Honestly, people's recent romanticism with McCline can only be explained by his two half-decent rounds with Valuev and his unfortunate finish in that bout. Outside of this rather pathetic achievement, there is nothing to be impressed about this overblown, huffing-puffing fringe contender. He sure as hell is not a better quality fighter than either McCall or Golota, because his biggest successes have been smaller and his biggest failures greater and more frequent, than either of those fighters. McCline's supporters are ,like their fighter, full of hot air.

Maybe Jameel Decline will not be inclined to get reclined in his bout with the Nigerian Frankenstein.

McCline is a tougher fight for Peter than his original.
