The Washington Post's Barry Svrluga has written a major profile of IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lamont Peterson in advance of Friday's card at the DC Armory. This is one of the longest stories I have seen on a local boxer in quite some time. The story is also a very good read! Here is the link:
By the way, the Friday, February 22 card will begin at 6 PM ET not 5 PM as I posted earlier. The doors open at 5 PM. The ESPN telecast starts at 9 PM ET.
There will be a final press conference that will be open to the public on Wednesday, February 20 at noon at the Dow Lohnes Media Center located at 1200 New Hampshire Ave, NW in DC. Space is limited for the event.
