The opponents have been announced for the co-main events on Saturday, September 27, 2014’s, “Rumble on the River” at OKC Downtown Airpark in Oklahoma City. In the night’s eight-round heavyweight co-main event, Samuel Peter (34-5, 27 KOs) will return for the first time in three years to face Ron “The Iceman” Aubrey (12-3, 12 KOs) from Oklahoma City.
Having been on the world stage for most of his career, the 34-year-old Peter will have the edge in experience, but Aubrey will have his army of fans in his corner, cheering the powerful strongman onto pull the huge upset. Someone is surely going home sore and disappointed in this war of big men.
“I am happy to be back in boxing,” said Samuel Peter. “I will dedicate myself to winning the heavyweight championship once again. I’m ready to knock out anyone who stands in my way.”
Meanwhile, Aubrey says he has a surprise waiting for Peter.
“He’s got more experience,” admitted Aubrey, “but I’ve been in hundreds of brawls in my lifetime. I’m not intimidated by him. He’s the better boxer, but I’m the better brawler and that’s what kind of fight it’s going to be. I’ve already got 12 knockouts in the ring and Samuel Peter is going to be my lucky number 13.”
And in the eight-round, middleweight co-main event, former WBA/WBC Welterweight and WBC Light Middleweight Champion Ricardo “El Matador” Mayorga (29-8-1, 23 KOs) will face 33-fight veteran and ex-US Marine Allen “Funky Cole” Medina of Denver, Colorado.
It will be Mayorga’s first fight since his brave stand against Miguel Cotto in March of 2011. He has tried his hand at MMA and taken considerable time off, so it remains to be seen if “El Matador” can still throw the bombs like he once did against some of boxing’s biggest names.
Headlining the undercard, Mexico’s Former IBF Light Middleweight champion “Yory Boy” Campas (102-17-3, 79 KO’s) will be gunning for the 103rd victory of his amazing career against 33-fight veteran Julio Cesar Lanzas of Colorado Springs, Colorado, in an eight-round middleweight match-up.
