Well, it looks like things were quiet for too long, a mere few days! Peterson is cranking up not only that celeb machine, but the money-making machine as well. Of course, any money he makes from yet another one of his ventures isn’t for him, it’s his children, he claims, that will ultimately cash in.
Peterson May Fight GF’s ex-BF

(WBBM) – Drew Peterson says West Coast promoters may set up a fight between him and his live-in girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. It is the latest twist in a sideshow that’s almost a year and a half old now. Drew Peterson says he has been challenged to a fight by his girlfriend’s ex-boyfriend. “Let him put his money where his mouth is and see what he’s got. Actually, he’s been kind of nuisancy to her and the guy was stalking her.” Peterson’s girlfriend is Christina Raines, 24.
Trained as a police officer, 55-year-old Peterson says it’s been 35 years since he was in a fight. “I mean, it’s going to be interesting watching me take on a guy 25 years my junior. But we’ll see how it goes.” WBBM asked Peterson what he’d do with his share of the money: keep it or give it to charity. “My biggest charity is my children. So if anything develops or if I make any money from it, anything would be for their future.” Peterson is a suspect in the disappearance of his fourth wife Stacy, and his third wife died under mysterious circumstances.
There has been some confusion about who originally challenged whom to this fight.
In an attempt to clear this up I emailed Sherman at Q101, who replied and explained that the clips posted on the Q101 site are incomplete. They omit the part of the interview where Mike challenged Drew, right before Drew called in to the station.
He included an MP3 of the missing part.
SHERMAN: If Drew was listening right now, what would you want to say to him?
MIKE: I just think, I think that he’s a scumbag. That’s it, and I think that… He aggravates me so much on this with the fact that he has screwed up her head so bad. I mean, I’m not jealous of the fact that I got broken up with because everybody gets broken up with. People are married for thirty years who get broken up with. Who cares? My biggest thing is I’m just so, so aggravated at what he’s doing to her that I just, seriously, I would love to get in a boxing ring with this guy. I would love just to throw on gloves and just go like four of six rounds with him.
SHERMAN: That much, huh?
MIKE: Yes. That’s what I want to do. Yeah. I would love to do that.
