Photos: Lamont Peterson Shows His Class in Jean Win

Washington, DC - Lamont Peterson (32-2-1, 16 KO’s) and Dierry Jean (25-1, 17 KO’s) kicked off the 2014 boxing calendar with an action-packed aggressive showdown.  Jean began with a patient approach, looking to test the chin of Peterson after his devastating knockout loss last May against Lucas Matthysse.  By midway through the fight Peterson made it clear that loss had no affect on him as he became the aggressor, putting on a show for his hometown crowd.  As the fight progressed Peterson outworked and outlanded his opponent using combinations, speed and agility.  At the end of the fight SHOWTIME Sports analyst and former World Champion Paulie Malignaggi emphatically stated, “Lamont clearly proved that he is still a force to be reckoned with at 140 pounds.” The judges scored the bout 115-113, 116-112 and 118-111.
