Spence-Peterson Undercard Results From Barclays Center

By Keith Idec

NEW YORK – Anthony Peterson pounded out a 10-round, unanimous-decision win against Luis Florez on his older brother’s undercard Saturday night at Barclays Center.

Peterson repeatedly went to Florez’s body and remained in control throughout the mostly uneventful fight. He made Florez retreat after landing several hard body shots late in the ninth round, but the durable Florez was able to finish all 10 rounds on the non-televised portion of the Errol Spence Jr.-Lamont Peterson undercard.

Peterson (38-1, 24 KOs) defeated Florez (23-9, 19 KOs) easily by winning each of the 10 rounds on all three scorecards (100-89, 100-90, 100-90).

The 32-year-old Peterson ended nearly a three-year layoff by fighting Florez. Before Saturday night, he hadn’t boxed since winning a 10-round unanimous decision against Samuel Neequaye in March 2016.

In the opener of the nine-bout card, welterweights Keyshawn Williams and Denis Okoth fought to a four-round draw.

Williams (1-0-1, 1 KOs), of Washington, D.C., won 39-37 on one scorecard, as did Kenya’s Okoth (1-0-1, 1 KO). The third judge had it even (38-38).
