2nd November, 2012
As the 18th National Sports Festival begins later this month, Garden City Games female gold medallist, Kate Peter, has vowed to win another gold medal for Lagos State if she is featured at the games.
Peter, who overpowered all her opponents to clinch the Light Welterweight gold medal in Port Harcourt last year, told Boxing In Focus that she has more steam in her to subdue her opponents at the coming games billed to hold fom 27 November to 9 December in Lagos State.
“Thoughts of featuring at the Eko 2012 excite me greatly and I have made up my mind not to settle for anything less than a gold medal at the games. I promise to win another gold medal for Lagos State if am given the opportunity to feature in this edition,” said Peter.
“I have gained more physical and mental improvements since I won a gold medal last year in Port Harcourt. And I am convinced that the experience that I gained at the last games will surely help me when I compete in this edition.”
The hard punching Peter, however, remains unfazed by the status of her opponents at the coming games, and will not enter the ring short of confidence.
“I am not afraid to face anybody at the games because I am in great spirits and in good condition. I am ready to assert my dominance in the Light Welterweight division once again as I did last year.
“This is not an attempt to disrespect my opponents at the games, but I will beat everyone to submission. I am totally focused on the games and I am confident that I can beat all my opponents as I did in Port Harcourt,” concluded Peter.
