Anthony Peterson-Marcos Jimenez on ESPN, March 21

Sherman Oaks, CA - World ranked contender Anthony Peterson will return to action against hard-hitting Dominican Marcos "EL Tigre" Jimenez on Friday, MARCH 21 in the 10-round co-featured bout at "HOMEWARD BOUND" on ESPN Friday Night Fights presented by Corona Extra from the Morongo Casino Resort Spa in Cabazon, California, it was announced today by Goossen Tutor Promotion.  The Peterson bout will be promoted in association with Headbangers Promotions.
 
"HOMEWARD BOUND" is headlined by Glendale's former world title challenger Vanes "The Nightmare" Martirosyan against tough Mexican veteran, Mario "Aguila" Lozano in a 10-round junior middleweight bout for the vacant WBO Inter-Continental Championship.
 
The 28-year-old Peterson, 32-1-0 (21 KO's), brother of IBF Junior Welterweight Champion Lamont, will be making his 2014 debut in the lightweight division. Fighting only once in 2013, Peterson stopped Dominic Salcido in the second round on May 18th in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
 
In  2011, Peterson challenged Brandon Rios in a WBA Lightweight Title Eliminator, suffering the only setback of his nine-year professional career.
 
Sporting a record of 20-4-0 (13 KO's), the 30-year-old upset minded Jimenez will be entering this fight following a successful year with two big victories.
 
On February 23, 2013, Jimenez stopped local favorite Mario Santiago in the ninth round in Ponce, Puerto Rico winning the vacant WBA Fedecentro Junior Lightweight Title.
 
Five months later, Jimenez won a unanimous decision over Jose Hernandez in Saratoga Springs, New York on July 26.
 
The stacked undercard for "HOMEWARD BOUND" will be headlined by a six round junior welterweight clash between undefeated and highly regarded 22-year-old prospect Abel Ramos of Phoenix, Arizona and cross-state veteran Rodolfo "Bam Bam" Armenta of Rio Rico, Arizona.
 
Making his nationally televised debut on January 17, Ramos, 8-0-1 (4 KO's), looked very impressive going toe-to-toe with heavily favored and undefeated prospect Maurice Hooker, eventually settling for a hard fought majority draw.
 
The Mexican born and heavy-handed Armenta brings a record of 13-12-1 (10 KO's) into battle, having faced a long list of boxing's toughest prospects.  
 
In a four round welterweight bout, Vanes Martirosyan will watch his younger brother Vatch Martirosyan, 2-0-0 (1 KO) clash with King City, California's Gustavo Lopez, 0-1-1. Considered a "can't miss prospect," this will be the first time the brothers have fought on the same card.
 
Promising Romanian heavyweight Razvan Cojanu, 8-1-0 (4 KO's) will look to continue his winning ways challenging fellow big man, Avery Gibson, 3-2-2 (1 KO). Based in Las Vegas, the massive (6'7") Cojanu started his 2014 campaign with a third round stoppage of Tobias Rice on February 7.
 
Twin prospects Kevin and Tevin Watts of Los Angeles will look to stay undefeated in separate four round bouts.
 
Fighting in the welterweight division, Kevin Watts, 4-0-0 (2 KO's), will challenge Gloferson Ortizo, 1-0-0.
 
Also in the welterweight division, Tevin, 1-0-1, will face Upland, California's Vicente Guzman, 0-3-1.
 
Rounding out the show, heralded and undefeated Los Angeles based featherweight prospect Manny de Jesus Robles Jr., 5-0-0 (2 KO's), will be featured in a scheduled four round bout and try to continue his hot streak, having won a unanimous decision over Ricky Lopez on January 24.
