ATLANTIC CITY (May 19, 2013) – It took knockout artist and WBC Interim Super Lightweight World Champion Lucas Matthysse only three rounds to claim his 32nd knockout against IBF Junior Welterweight World Champion Lamont Peterson in front of an excited crowd Saturday night. In the co-main event from Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, Devon Alexander outclassed Lee Purdy with a seventh-round technical knockout win after Purdy’s corner waved the fight off.

Matthysse (34-2, 32 KO’s) used the first round to feel out Peterson and promptly picked up the pace in the second. The Argentine began landing with ferocity and eventually dropped Peterson (31-2-1, 16 KO’s) with a left hook late in the round. Early in the third, another left hook landed flush sending Peterson down again. The IBF World Champion beat the count, barely, and was on wobbly legs when Matthysse came in for the finish. Moments later, after the third knockdown courtesy of a left hook, referee Steve Smoger waved off the fight at 2:14 of round three. (continue reading…)
