L. Peterson Now WBA's 'Champion in Recess'; Guerrero Added to Khan-Garcia Undercard!

Lamont Peterson is no longer the World Boxing Association Junior Welterweight champion.  The WBA returned the title back to former champion Amir Khan and Khan can put that title on the line against WBC titleholder Danny Garcia on Saturday, July 14 at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas.  Peterson is now considered a "Champion in Recess" until the WBA reevaluates the situation.  Peterson still holds the IBF version of the 140-pound title.

Speaking of that July 14 card, it will have some Beltway representation.  Salisbury, MD middleweight Fernando Guerrero will be in the 10-round supermiddleweight co-feature bout against Jose "Stinger" Medina of Tilton, NH.  Guerrero (23-1, 18 KO's) has won two straight since his June 2011 loss to Grady Brewer.  Medina (17-10-1, seven KO's) is coming off a 12-round majority decision loss to Bronco McKart on April 28.

Are you for shore that he is fighting another bum. Someone who just lost to a has been. When will Fernando fight someone worth it, when he is 30-1 and then fight for a title and that will be it.

Tell me your name and I will shove this key up your ass.
Why take it out on Lamont?
All the top fighters are juiceing it up in some way.
Pac Man is full of steriods and they won't even test him because he is the cash cow of the busniess.This is a corrupt world and professional boxing is at the top when it comes to being corrupt so don't come down on Lamont unless you are going to scream at everybody else.
