Weights from Washington, D.C.: Peterson 139.4, Holt 140

by Gautham Nagesh of StiffJab.com, live at the scales

Lamont Peterson and Kendall Holt both made the junior-welterweight limit on Thursday afternoon for their title fight airing tomorrow night on ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights from the D.C. Armory in Washington, D.C.

Peterson, who will be defending his International Boxing Federation belt, weighed in at 139.4-pounds. Holt, meanwhile, checked in at 140-pounds.

Peterson will be fighting for the first time since December 2011, when he defeated Amir Khan in a close and controversial split decision. Peterson and Khan were supposed to have a rematch last year, only for that to be called off after Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone, which he said was used for medical reasons. The 29-year-old from Washington, D.C., is 30-1-1 with 15 knockouts.

Holt is also appearing in his first bout in some time, with his last appearance being a March 2012 stoppage of Tim Coleman. The former 140-pound titleholder, a 31-year-old from Paterson, N.J., is 28-5 with 16 knockouts.

[QUOTE=Pan-Africanist;13065093]GBP has the 140lb Division on lock. So I hope Peterson takes it. That sets up the possibility of a Matthysse or Garcia vs Peterson for the undisputed championship. I can dig that.[/QUOTE] Either is a great match up..
