Peterson-Jean TV Schedule!

As we said, the card Saturday night at the DC Armory is slated to begin at 4:20 PM ET.  The non-televised undercard will go until close to 7 PM.  That is when three bouts will be televised on the Showtime Extreme channel. Those are:

Dominic Wade (13-0, 10 KO's) vs. Dashon Johnson (15-13-3, five KO's) middleweight, eight rounds.

Daniel Attah (28-17-1, 11 KO's) vs. Robert Easter, Jr. (8-0, eight KO's) lightweight, eight rounds.

Rau'Shee Warren (17-0, three KO's) vs. German Mera (33-26-1, 20 KO's) bantamweight, eight rounds.

Note: some boxing sites don't recognize Warren's appearances in the World Series of Boxing from 2010-2012 where he fought against pros but still kept his amateur status.  Some list his record as 9-0, three KO's.

Wade's and Attah's appearances on TV will bring the total of locals making national TV appearances up to seven.

The featured bouts will be shown on Showtime beginning at 9 PM, starting with the Jermell Charlo-Gabriel Rosado contest followed by Lamont Peterson-Dierry Jean.

This also means that if you want to see D'Mitrius Ballard in his first pro bout at home or if you want to see Baltimore's Kevin Womack, you need to be at the Armory early.  As of right now, Womack is scheduled to be in the second contest of the day and Ballard in the fourth.
