Peter, 22, was introduced to the art of boxing by his father, uncle, and grandfather (all of whom were professional fighters) at a young age. Peter relied on the expertise of his champion father in order to acquire the discipline needed to be a successful boxer.
He has lived his entire life in his father's gym and has more than the average perspective on the business of boxing and the potential to make a great living at it. His father complains that he started boxing too late in his life to have made any real money. However, Peter Jr. seems to be doing just fine. He has an SUV, and bought some land to build a house for his high school sweetheart-turned wife Yamika and their baby daughter.
Currently ranked no. 3 in the world, Peter risks his undefeated record for a shot of Contender glory. Leaving his wife and 2-year-old daughter behind, Peter hopes to make his prestigious fighting family proud. “If I can win a couple of big fights and make some good money for my family so they don’t struggle, than that’s what I’m going to.” “They’re going to have to kill me to get me out of it.”
Peter is affable, likes to laugh and is generally a happy guy but does not take criticism well. He knows the world of boxing, his place in it and is confident in his chances in this competition. Peter Senior is deathly afraid that the shows trainer will screw-up what he took a lifetime to build with his son. He is very confident that Jr. is the Contender.
