WBA Welterweight Title – Avanesyan v Peterson

Stamina down the stretch sees Peterson take the title

Lamont Peterson became a two weight world champion getting the better of Champion Russian David Avanesyan in Ohio. The contest was a cagey tight affair for the first five rounds but in the middle of the fight the two stood toe to toe exchanging blows in a tit for tat affair in which neither established control. As it went on the Russian tired the faster and the body punching of Peterson began to tell it’s toll. Peterson was much more on the front foot landing telling blows which saw him sweep the final three rounds on all three judges scorecards that in the end was the difference. He was given the decision unanimously to claim his the title in his first fight since October 2015. His stamina was hugely impressive given how long he has been out of the ring.
