For the first time since December of 2011, there will be two Peterson Brothers competing on the same card. Lightweight Anthony Peterson will join his older brother, Lamont on the Saturday, May 18 card at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
Anthony Peterson (31-1, 20 KO's) has not fought since December 10, 2011 when he won a 10-round unanimous decision over fellow Beltway Boxer Daniel Attah at the Washington Convention Center, the same card Lamont Peterson won the IBF/WBA 140-Pound championship from Amir Khan.
Anthony Peterson's opponent will be Dominic Salcido of Rialto, CA in this 10-round contest. Salcido (18-4, nine KO's) has lost three of his last four but has gone the 10-round distance in his last two bouts. Salcido is moving up in weight from super featherweight for this contest. The bout will be shown as part of the Showtime Extreme coverage beginning at 7 PM ET.
