BoxingScene.com has confirmed that IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson, and his brother Anthony Peterson, have become the latest additions to the vast stable of powerful adviser Al Haymon. The signings were confirmed by Sam Watson, who works closely with Haymon.
Lamont Peterson (31-2-1, 16 KOs) bounced back from a third round TKO at the hands of Lucas Matthysse, when he came back in January to win a twelve round unanimous decision over Dierry Jean. Anthony Peterson (32-1, 21 KOs) will return to action on March 21 against Marcos Jimenez (20-4, 13 KOs) as part of ESPN2's Friday Night Fights.
In the last few weeks, Haymon also signed Adonis Stevenson, Luis Collazo, Chad Dawson and a handful of prospects. Haymon also works with Floyd Mayweather Jr., Danny Garcia, Deontay Wilder, Peter Quillin, Marcos Maidana, Adrien Broner, Leo Santa Cruz and many, many others.Tags: Al Haymon , Lamont Peterson , Anthony Peterson
