Lamont Peterson Outboxes Lanardo Tyner, Wins Decision

By Mark Vester

At the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, on the undercard to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.-Matt Vanda II, junior welterweight prospect Lamont Peterson (26-0, 12KOs) outboxed Lanardo Tyner (19-2, 11KOs) over ten-rounds to win a unanimous decision. The scores were 99-87, 99-90 and 98-91.

Tyner caught Peterson off guard when he came out swinging with power shots, backing Peterson up to the ropes and unloading with combinations. Peterson picked his spots to throw quick counters. Peterson began to establish his jab in the second, Tyner tried to stay close and keep the fight on the inside, but Peterson was landing some good punches to the head and body. To close the round, Peterson unloaded some tough shots to make Tyner uneasy on his feet.

Peterson began to shorten his hooks in the third to cause some damage. Tyner came back in the fourth, throwing some good punches to the body. Peterson wound mount a comeback, but lost a point for a low blow near the end. Peterson kept the fight on the outside in fifth, hanging back and just throwing a good jab. More of an inside fight broke out in the sixth. During the seventh, Tyner took some good punches while trying to turn the fight into a brawl.

In the eight, they went back on inside and Peterson outworked him. Tyner looked very tired when the eight came to a close. It came close to target practice in the ninth, with Peterson throwing and Tyner too tired to mount an offense. The tenth and final round was more of the same, with a tired Tyner making to the bell while Peterson was doing most of the throwing.
