Russian boxers train by punching trees.
Russian puncher Oleg Maskaev recently pulled out of his Saturday 6 title fight against Sam "the Nigerian Nightmare" Peter (no relation to the "other" Nigerian Nightmare, Christian Okoye), citing injury. In his stead, Peter will fight New York behemoth Jameel "Big Time" McCline for the WBC interim title. Same time, same place.
