ATLANTIC CITY -- There would be no heavyweight heir apparent crowned Saturday night before a lively crowd of 10,137 at Boardwalk Hall.
Instead, it was the old heir apparent, Wladimir Klitschko, who pulled magic out of his hat when he needed it most, surviving three knockdowns (two
questionable) to defeat previously unbeaten Samuel Peter via a 12-round unanimous decision.
All three judges scored the WBO and IBF title eliminator identically, 114-111, for Klitschko, now 45-3. Peter is 24-1.
