Peter takes on Eddie Chambers in a heavyweight fight as a part of ESPN’s Friday Night Fights on ESPN2. The two square off at Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater.
Peter (30-2) enters the fight having lost his last time in action when Vitali Klitschko knocked him out in October.

The 28-year-old comes from Nigeria.
