Golden Boy Promotions Wins Purse Bid For Peterson Mandatory Title Defense!

It looks like IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lamont Peterson will be defending his title in the not too distant future.  Earlier today, Peterson's promotional company, Golden Boy Promotions, won a purse bid to promote Peterson's title defense against the mandatory challenger, undefeated Dierry "Dougy Style" Jean of Montreal, Canada.

Golden Boy paid $156,000 for the rights to promote the bout and has 90 days to put on the fight.  The only other bid was for $111, 121 dollars.  No word yet on where the bout will be held.

Peterson (31-2-1, 16 KO's) will try to bounce back from his third-round TKO loss to Lucas Matthysse on May 18 in Atlantic City, NJ.  Jean, a native of Haiti (25-0, 17 KO's), earned the title shot with a fourth-round TKO over Cleotis Pendarvis on May 10 in Miami, OK.

I went down to head bangers and watched Lamont train some. It was a nice day and they left the front door open, next thing ya know a mosquito flew in and landed on his chin. He got all glassy eyed and needed a standing 8 . He was unfit to continue. Mosquito by tko.

I think Barry is opening a new gym in DuPont called "the man hole". He was top trainer at head bangers now he is a total bottom.
