Petersons Score Knockout Wins In Brooklyn!

The Peterson Brothers scored solid knockout victories tonight at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY.

IBF Junior Welterweight champion Lamont Peterson made a successful defense of his crown with a 10th round TKO of Edgar Santana of Harlem, NY.  Peterson was very solid throughout the contest, doing a great job of going to the body.  Eventually, Peterson broke Santana down to where the bout was stopped at 2:48.

Peterson is now 33-2-1, 17 KO's while Santana drops to 29-5, 20 KO's.

Earlier tonight, Anthony Peterson scored a wicked first-round knockout of Mexican Edgar Riovalle.  Peterson dropped Riovalle with a crushing right hand with about 30 seconds to go in the round.  Riovalle could not beat the 10-count and the bout was over at 2:41.

Peterson is now 34-1, 22 KO's while Riovalle falls to 37-19-2, 26 KO's.

Great showings from both Lamont and Anthony Peterson. Anthony proving he's working his way back into championship fight mode with his knockout victory. Lamont Peterson proving that he is still deserving of a shot at the WBC world title status maybe having the opportunity to fight Danny Garcia next. Both fighters are representing the Beltway Boxing area very well!
