Danny Garcia-Lamont Peterson Eyed For Early December

According to Stephen Espinoza, head of Showtime Sports, his network is looking at early December for a potential junior welterweight unification between WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (29-0, 17KOs) and Lamont Peterson (33-2-1, 17KOs), who holds the IBF's version of the title.

Both champions were in action on Saturday night at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. Garcia demolished Rod Salka in two rounds and Peterson stopped Edgar Santana in ten.

"We'd love to do it, we've had preliminary conversations," Espinoza told BoxingScene.com. "We're possibly looking at early December for this fight. We'll have to check with the camps, on both sides, to make sure that time table still works  but that's something we'd like to get done before the end of the year."

There is a possibility that Garcia will move up in weight. He fought Salka at a catch-weight of 142-pounds. With or without the titles being at stake, Showtime would still be very interested in showcasing the fight.

"The titles are secondary. What we have in Danny Garcia and Lamont Peterson and two of the most skilled fighters in their division, whether that division is 140 or 147 - they are two skilled guys. Whether it's for the unified titles or not - its sort of icing on the cake. It would be great if it were for the unified titles but its still a great event, a great fight even if its not for the unified titles," Espinoza said.

[QUOTE=Red Cyclone]Another ****ty fight for Danny Garcia what a coward...[/QUOTE] What Danny Garcia are you talking about? Certainly not Swift because he is far from being a coward and any clear thinking person knows that.

I think Danny beats up Peterson. Garcia is simply the better fighter.
