Last Fight vs. Sergey Lipinets 3/24/19


Lamont Peterson and his brother, Anthony, lost their parents when they were quite young. When Lamont was 10, a boxing coach in Washington D.C. noticed them. He took them and mentored them while developing their boxing skills.

Peterson made his professional debut in September 2004, and he went on to win 27 straight before suffering his first pro loss. His 27th win earned him a taste of major gold by winning the interim WBO Light Welterweight Title. However, he would lose a match for the official world strap to Timothy Bradley.

Almost exactly two years after the loss to Bradley, Peterson defeated Amir Khan to become the new WBA and IBF Light Welterweight Champion. Peterson’s WBA run was short-lived, as he failed a drug test and the WBA Title was given back to Khan.

Peterson made three successful defenses of the title and defeated David Avanesyan in February 2017 to add WBA Welterweight gold.

Peterson attempted to challenge Errol Spence Jr. for the IBF Welterweight Title in January 2018 but fell short.
