Peterson and Lipinets will meet in a welterweight bout.

Peterson (35-4-1, 17 KOs), of Washington, D.C., hasn’t fought since Spence stopped him following seven one-sided rounds in their fight for Spence’s IBF welterweight title January 20 at Barclays Center in Brooklyn.

Kazakhstan’s Lipinets (14-1, 10 KOs) bounced back from his loss to Mikey Garcia in his last fight. Lipinets defeated Ecuador’s Erick Bone (21-6, 9 KOs) by majority decision in that 10-rounder, a fight Lipinets clearly won, despite that one of the judges scored it even (99-91, 98-92, 95-95) on August 4 in Uniondale, New York.

Lipinets lost his IBF junior welterweight title to Garcia in his previous fight. Garcia (39-0, 30 KOs), of Oxnard, California, dropped Lipinets in the seventh round and won a 12-round unanimous decision March 10 at Freeman Coliseum in San Antonio.

Quillin and Truax are set to square off in a super middleweight match.

Brooklyn’s Quillin (34-1-1, 23 KOs), a former WBO middleweight champ, will attempt to extend his winning streak to three fights versus Truax. He defeated J’Leon Love (24-2-1, 13 KOs, 1 NC) by unanimous decision in a dull 10-rounder, also August 4 in Uniondale.

Truax (30-4-2, 19 KOs) lost the IBF super middleweight title back to James DeGale earlier this year. DeGale defeated Truax by unanimous decision in that immediate, 12-round rematch April 9 in Las Vegas.

The Osseo, Minnesota, native scored one of the biggest upsets of 2017 in his previous fight, when he out-pointed England’s DeGale (25-2-1, 15 KOs) by majority decision December 9 in London.
