Anthony Peterson-Daniel Attah Clash on The Khan Card

WASHINGTON, DC - "Capital Showdown: Khan vs. Peterson" fight week is in full swing and big-time boxing's return to the District just got bigger as Golden Boy Promotions and Khan Promotions present an undercard jam-packed with compelling matchups in the lead-up to the WBA and IBF Super Lightweight World Title fight between champion Amir "King" Khan and challenger Lamont Peterson this Saturday, December 10 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center in Washington, DC.

Hometown favorite and lightweight contender Anthony Peterson, popular local standout Fernando Guerrero and unbeaten Irish prospect Jamie "The Nuisance" Kavanagh are ready for action as they prepare to show DC what they are made of on Saturday night.

The brother of main event challenger Lamont Peterson, lightweight Anthony Peterson (30-1, 20 KO's) is forging his own path to a world title, and his bout on December 10 is a step in the right direction. A former NABF and NABO champion whose only pro loss came via disqualification to Brandon Rios in his last fight in September of 2010, the 26-year old Washington, DC native's long-awaited return to the ring will come in his backyard against the always tough 34-year-old Ghana native Daniel Attah (26-8-1, 9 KO's). Attah, a rugged warrior who has faced the best the game has to offer including former World Champions Acelino Freitas and Nate Campbell as well as current World Champion Antonio DeMarco, is always ready for battle and will look to spoil Peterson's ring return on Saturday night.

Hailing from nearby Salisbury, Maryland, 25-year old Fernando Guerrero (21-1, 16 KO's) is one of the east coast's most popular fighters and for good reason considering his charisma outside of the ring and his action-packed style inside of it. Looking to bounce back from the lone loss of his pro career to Grady Brewer in June, Guerrero squares off with Minnesota's Robert Kliewer (11-13-2, 5 KO's) in an eight-round middleweight bout.

Unbeaten in eight pro fights, Ireland's Jamie "The Nuisance" Kavanagh (8-0, 3 KO's) has had a busy 2011, winning all four of his bouts this year without losing a round. Now fighting out of Hollywood, Calif., the 21-year-old Freddie Roach trained lightweight will take on San Juan, Puerto Rico's Ramesis Gil (6-3-4, 5 KO's) in a six-round contest.

Plus, Washington, DC fighters will take the stage on the biggest night of their pro careers to date when Fort Washington, Maryland light heavyweight Thomas Williams (5-0, 3 KO's) faces Reynaldo Rodriguez (6-2-1, 3 KO's) of Woonsocket, Rhode Island, welterweights Dusty Harrison (2-0) and Terrell Davis (0-4) face-off in an all-DC match-up, White Plains, Maryland lightweight Joshua Davis (1-0, 1 KO) takes on Chris Russell (2-7-1, 1 KO) of Shattuck, Oklahoma in a lightweight battle and White Plains lightweight Terron Grant (1-0) faces North Carolina's Dashawn Autry (0-1). Each of these exciting bouts featuring hometown up-and-comers are scheduled for four rounds and are sure to start "Capital Showdown: Khan vs. Peterson" off right.
