Anthony Petersons return back to the ring his first bout since losing by disqualification to Brandon Rios in September 2010 came in Washington, D.C., an eight-round decision win over Daniel Attah.
It felt food being back in there after 15 months in front of my hometown crowd, Peterson said afterward. I really wanted to do well here and bring a win home. You always want the knockout, but a win is a win.
He [Attah] was pretty tough. He got off some good shots, but he was crafty. Daniels a good fighter. I take nothing away from him. What this tells me is I need to be in the ring more. Right away, no later than February.
