Berlin Vitali Klitschko reclaimed the WBC heavyweight title Saturday night, stopping Samuel Peter at the end of the eighth round. The 37-year-old Ukrainian beat Peter with a flurry of solid jabs to the head that kept him ducking and weaving - and occasionally wobbling.
Klitschko (36-2, 34 KOs) has been WBC "champion emeritus" since a knee injury forced him to bow out of a fight and retire from boxing in 2005. The two fought Saturday at Berlin's O2 World arena in front of more than 12,000 fans.
The Nigerian-born Peter dropped to 30-2.
