Review: 2014-08-09, nice toe-to-toe exchanges in the second part of the fight: Lamont Peterson vs Edgar Santana gets three stars. Lamont Peterson entered this fight with a pro boxing record of 32-2-1 (16 knockouts) and he is ranked as the No.3 light welterweight in the world (currently the #1 in this division is Danny Garcia), he suffered his second defeat last year when he faced Lucas Matthysse (=Peterson vs Matthysse), after that bout he fought once and he came back to victory beating then-undefeated Dierry Jean (=Peterson vs Jean).
His opponent, Edgar Santana, has a record of 29-4-0 (20 knockouts) and he entered as the No.70 in the same weight class, he lost his last bout in 2012 when he faced Manuel Perez for the NABA light welterweight title; since then he has fought and won three times. Peterson vs Santana is valid for the IBF light welterweight title (Peterson’s third defense); undercard of Danny Garcia vs Rod Salka. Watch the video and rate this fight!
