Golden Boy Promotions, the promotional group for the Saturday, January 25 card at the DC Armory in Washington, DC, has announced its co-feature for the card headlined by Lamont Peterson defending his IBF Junior Welterweight title against Dierry Jean.
The 10-round co-feature should be a good one as undefeated Jermell "Iron Man" Charlo of Houston, TX will battle former world title challenger "King" Gabriel Rosado of Philadelphia, PA. Charlo (22-0, 11 KO's) is coming off a 10-round TKO over Jose Angel Rodriguez on October 14 in Sunrise, FL. Rosado (21-7, 13 KO's) will try to bounce back from his 10-round TKO loss to Peter Quillin for the WBO Middleweight title on October 26 in Atlantic City, NJ.
BATB is learning that a number of Beltway Boxers are slated for the card but no matchups have been announced. We are hearing that Anthony Peterson, Phil Jackson Benson, D'Mitrius Ballard and Dominic Wade are all slated to compete on the card. Whether more locals will be added remains to be seen.
