NABO Lightweight champion Anthony Peterson of DC returns to action on Friday, August 4 when he appears as the co-feature on an ESPN2 card at the FedEx Forum in Memphis, TN.
The undefeated Peterson (18-0, 14 KO's) will take on Marc Thompson (15-1, 12 KO's, two NC's) of Topeka, KN in a non-title, eight-round co-feature.
Don't let Thompson's record fool you. The only other time he stepped up in competition was in his only loss. He was stopped in the first round by undefeated 140-pound contender Mike Arnaoutis in a bout for the NABO Junior Welterweight title in January of this year.
Other than two wins against Raul Munoz, all of Thompson's other wins have come against debuting fighters or under-.500 boxers. The positive with that is the fact that he has 12 KO's, so he knows what to do with those boxers.
