Victor Ortiz vs Lamont Peterson Set For December 11

By Mark Vester

According to the Los Angeles Times , junior welterweight Victor Ortiz (28-2-1, 22KOs) will face once-beaten Lamont Peterson (28-1, 14KOs) on December 11 as the HBO televised co-feature to Amir Khan's defense of the WBA title against Marcos Maidana. The doubleheader takes place at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The only fighter to beat Peterson is WBO champion Timothy Bradley.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer told the paper that Ortiz, if he wins, will get a title shot next. There will be two options presented to Ortiz, which includes the Khan-Maidana winner or the winner of January's unification between Bradley and Devon Alexander.

"He got his confidence back from the scene of the crime, and we believe he'll show in December that he's ready now to fight anyone at 140 pounds," Schaefer said.
