A former national boxing coach, Samson Aransiola has advised Samuel â€˜The Nigerian Nightmareâ€™Â Peter to quit the game now before he dies in the ring.
This advice is coming in the wake of Peterâ€™s defeat in the hands of Wladimir Klischko duringÂ the IBF/WBO heavyweight title bout. Wladimir beat the Nigerian boxer in the 10th roundÂ Â Saturday night at the Commerzbank-Arena, in Frankfurt, Germany.
Aransiola said with the latest defeat after Wladimirâ€™s brother, Vitali has beaten Peter twoÂ years ago; the Akwa Ibom State-born pugilist should quit the scene now.
â€œThe defeats were a national embarrassment. This shows that Peter cannot beat the twoÂ brothers again. He should quit boxing now and do something else thatÂ bring shame to himselfÂ and the country,â€ said Aransiola.
The 30-year-old Peterâ€™s right eye was dazed from Wladimir heavy punches which knocked himÂ down in the 10th round. Referee Roberto Byrd then stepped in and halted the bout at 1:22.
With Saturday’s defeat, it makes three timesÂ The Nigerian Nightmare has lost to theÂ Klitschko’s brothers.
