Peterson Defends IBF Title Against Kendall Holt February 22 At DC Armory..Maybe!

ESPN.com is reporting that IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lamont Peterson will return to action on Friday, February 22 and defend his title against former WBO champion Kendall Holt of Paterson, NJ at the DC Armory.  The report says the bout will be televised on ESPN2's Friday Night Fights.

Late word from the Peterson camp says, however, that the bout is not a done deal as of yet.  A spokesperson for the Peterson camp tells BATB that the bout is a"viable option," but still not definite as there are other choices on the table, including a rematch with former world champ Timothy Bradley. 

If the bout takes place, Peterson (30-1-1, 15 KO's) will fight for the first time since winning the title against Amir Khan on December 10, 2011 at the Washington Convention Center.  Peterson also captured the WBA title but was stripped after he tested positive for synthetic testosterone.  Holt (28-5, 16 KO's) last fought on March 16, knocking out Tim Coleman in two rounds in Cabazon, CA. We'll keep you posted on details.

Don't think so, but I do believe that he has to get back to the basics of boxing rather than slugging it out. It appears that he is looking to bang for the most part. Bradley is looking for a big payday and Lamont can't bring that to the table, plus I don't think he can beat Bradley unless he boxes and uses his advantage of height and reach. If Lamont continues to head bang, his career will be short!
