IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lamont Peterson will defend his title against the number one challenger Dierry "Dougy Style" Jean on Saturday, January 25 at the DC Armory in Washington, DC.
This will be the second title defense for DC native Peterson (31-2-1, 16 KO's) and his first contest since he lost the non-title contest against Lucas Matthysse by third-round TKO on May 18 in Atlantic City, NJ. Peterson defended the title against Kendall Holt on February 22 at the Armory and won by an eighth-round TKO.
The undefeated Jean, a native of Port-Au-Prince, Haiti who lives in Montreal, Canada (25-0, 17 KO's), earned the number one spot by stopping Cleotis Pendarvis in the fourth round on May 10 in Miami, OK.
