Barclays Center, Brooklyn - In the co-feature bout, Lamont Peterson (33-2-1, 17 KOs) retained his IBF Junior Welterweight World Championship with a dominating tenth-round technical knockout victory over Edgar Santana (29-5, 20 KOs).

Peterson, of Washington, D.C., controlled the fight from the outset, lighting up New York native Santana with left hooks and shots to the body. Peterson was highly accurate, landing 53 percent of his power punches and 48 percent of his total punches.

The champion diversified his attack in later rounds, with Santana enduring consistent punishment. With 11 seconds left in the tenth, referee Pete Santiago had seen enough and awarded Peterson the technical knockout.

“I was able to show a lot of dimensions of my game,” said 30-year-old Peterson. “I was boxing well. I fought on the inside well. I actually think I should have gotten him out of there sooner but I give myself an okay grade.

"I think it was [round] four or five. I hurt him. I didn't finish him. I don't know why I didn't but I knew I hurt him –and it was over– it was just a matter of time. I just had to get the right spot, push on the gas and go forward.”

On a potential fight with Danny Garcia…“This is the fight all the fans and the media want. I'm willing to do it. Again, I'm going to say this: 'I'm willing to do it.' Hopefully it gets done...It makes more sense to do it at 140 but if it has to happen at 147 I have no problem.”

On his feelings during his brother's fight…"He [Anthony] did me a favor tonight...I had to fight but that's my brother. I was a little nervous when he was in there. Good thing is he got him out of there in the first round so I didn't have to worry about him for too long.”

“He came in with a good game plan. He’s tougher than I expected. His style frustrated me,” said Santana.

Not really a fight that is in high demand... it's just more like we all saw it coming. Regardless of getting caught on PED's, KO'ed by Lucas, etc..we all saw it coming. I'll be watching but it's certainly not in demand enough to justify a CW.

Regardless of who Garcia's next opponent is, if it's not a ranked fighter, there will be serious questions about his legitimacy as the lineal champ. You can't take away the wins over Khan and Matthysse but you're only as good as your latest fights, just like in the entertainment industry where yo...

It is more along the lines of a pretty good fight. It is better than their last fights so at least it is acceptable and it should be a solid action fight. It is not something incredible that couldn't be passed over for a different opportunity though.
