Peterson: Jean Win Gets Me To Where I Was Pre-Matthysse

Lamont Peterson had been on a decent run prior to his knockout loss last year against Lucas Matthysse. He had knocked out Victor Cayo to earn a shot at then-titleholder Amir Khan, scored a split decision over Amir Khan to pick up a pair of world titles, and then, after an extended layoff, had stopped Kendall Holt in front of a hometown crowd.

And then Matthysse put him down three times and stopped him in three rounds.

That was eight months ago, and Peterson returned this past Saturday with a unanimous decision win over Dierry Jean.

“I think it puts me back in the position that I was in before the loss,” Peterson told reporters afterward. “At the end of the day, you’re fighting at the top level, you’re fighting top guys. You take a loss, you go back a few steps. You win, you go up a few steps. At the end of the day, I think I’m where I was. I’m just ready to continue to climb the ladder and become No. 1.”

Peterson said he wants the consensus No. 1 guy at junior welterweight, Danny Garcia, who is expected to return in March in a bout against Mauricio Herrera.

[QUOTE=RVABoxer]Oh maybe he did I just felt like he got knocked down on the inside for some reason. I think his reach is longer than Matthysse's so i would think he'd benefit from boxing on the outside[/QUOTE] The first knockdown was when he was still boxing. He got in some punches and did bet...

[QUOTE=RVABoxer]True maybe the thing I saw said they had to take two samples I can't remember exactly I just know he used it as a reason he didn't feel well. The main key for Peterson vs Matthysse would be for peterson to stay outside which he didnt do[/QUOTE] He tried to stay outside and lost...

[QUOTE=.:: JSFD26 ::.]Ill go with the latter. Matthysse went thru the same testing and was possibly jet lagged. Zero excuses. Posted from Boxingscene.com App for Android[/QUOTE] True maybe the thing I saw said they had to take two samples I can't remember exactly I just know he used it...
