Anthony Peterson: Me and Lamont Will Never Fight

Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko had often been asked if they would ever face each other — after all, they were the two best heavyweights in the world, and a bout between them would narrow that number down to one.

They refused, however. Similarly, lightweight contender Anthony Peterson says he and his older brother, 140-pound titleholder Lamont, wouldn’t share a ring in anything but a sparring session.

“That’ll never happen,” Anthony Peterson said. “We spar every day, but in the ring you go to hurt people. Them eight-ounces [gloves], they hurt. I know he don’t want to hurt me, and I don’t want to hurt him, so it’ll be a boring sparring match [in an otherwise pro fight]. That’ll never happen.”

Meanwhile, there’s no professional rivalry in terms of accomplishments. Lamont has done much more than Anthony in the pro ranks so far and has received a far greatr spotlight. Anthony says he doesn’t feel any pressure to catch up with his brother.

“When Lamont winning, I’m winning,” Anthony said. “When you see him happy, I’m happier. When you see Lamont sad, I’m sadder. It’s always going to be that way. Always.”

First of all, money talks. Even the Klits admitted $100 million apiece and they would consider it! For that type of money I'd fight my mom lol. Furthermore I've fought my brothers before.

Nobody cares. His fight on Showtime Extreme against Riovalle was another Haymon mismatch special. He should fight somebody in the top 20 at 135.

You can die in that ring. You can't potentially kill your brother.
