“It is literally like a bomb exploding every time (Matthysse) lands a punch.” - SHOWTIME Boxing analyst Paulie Malignaggi

Saturday’s SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXING Telecast Will Replay Sunday Morning at 9 a.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME® and Tuesday, May 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME EXTREME®

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…)

by on Mar.29, 2013, under Boxing News, Press Releases

WASHINGTON, DC, March 28, 2013 — Contrary to earlier erroneous media reports, Lamont Peterson did not fail a post-fight drug test following his successful IBF Junior Welterweight World Championship defense against Kendall Holt on Friday, February 22 in Washington, DC. In fact, Peterson tested negative for all banned substances on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Full Menu as well as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) and luteinizing hormone (LH).

“We are very pleased that there has been clarification that Lamont Peterson did not test positive for any banned substances as reported inaccurately earlier today,” said Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions. “Today’s incident exemplifies the importance of accurate fact checking prior to reporting news. Golden Boy Promotions looks forward to Lamont Peterson’s next fight and furthering his career.”
