Lightweight boxer Anthony Peterson will not be fighting on the Jan. 25 card in Washington, D.C. — which features his older brother, Lamont, against Dierry Jean in the main event.

“We have a better opportunity for Anthony, and that’s why he was pulled from the card,” said Andre Johnson, a spokesman for Peterson. “Trust me, he wanted to fight. But he understands what lies down the road for him.”

What could be next is Anthony Peterson headlining his own card, perhaps in his hometown of Washington, D.C., sometime in March or April, according to Johnson.

Anthony last fought on May 18, stopping Dominic Salcido on the undercard to Lamont’s loss to Lucas Matthysse. That brought his record to 32-1 with 21 KOs.

Anthony’s team was in the process of finalizing his opponent for this Jan. 25 card when the other, better opportunity came up, Johnson said.
