Peterson vs. Matthysse at 141-Pound Catch-Weight

By Edward Chaykovsky

Lucas Matthysse and Lamont Peterson are working hard for their upcoming match, scheduled to take place on May 18th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Peterson (31-1-1, 16 KO’s) vs. Matthysse (33-2, 31 KO’s) will be the Showtime televised fight to Devon Alexander vs. Kell Brook will headline the show. Golden Boy Promotions announced earlier today that Peterson-Matthysse will take place at the catch-weight of 141-pounds, which means Peterson's IBF junior welterweight title, and Matthysse's WBC interim-title, are not at stake.

The fight is technically being billed as a "twelve round welterweight" match. Matthysse, the WBC's mandatory challenger to champion Danny Garcia, would likely remain in that position regardless of the Peterson outcome.
