Lamont Peterson has retained his IBF Junior Welterweight title with an eighth-round stoppage of former world champ Kendall Holt.
Peterson started slowly in the first three rounds as Holt landed some solid shots. Holt got brave in the fourth and came inside -- right into Peterson's wheelhouse. Peterson drops Holt with a big right-left-right combo.
Peterson knocks down Holt again in the sixth and stops him in the eighth at 1:42. Peterson is now 31-1-1, 16 KO's and Holt falls to 28-6, 16 KO's.
We're not done. Dominic Wade is next against Marcus Brooks.
