Big time boxing returns to Washington - Lamont Peterson vs Dierry Jean


Recommended Posts


Big time boxing returns to Washington DC this Saturday (January 25th) when hometown native Lamont Peterson (31-2-1)* defends his IBF Light Welterweight crown against unbeaten mandatory challenger Dierry Jean (25-0) at the DC Amory Arena* in a show promoted by Golden Boy. Peterson, 29, won both the IBF and WBA Light Welterweight titles back in 2011 with a controversial split decision win over Amir Khan in a fight which saw the Brit deducted two points for repeatedly pushing his American counterpart. Controversy continued to surround the fighter when in May 2012 he tested positive for synthetic testosterone in the run up to his rematch with Khan. Peterson later admitted that the procedure was carried out in November, meaning the testosterone capsules were in his body prior to his first fight with Khan which saw the former Olympic silver medallist reinstated by the WBA.
