Oxon Hill, Maryland (March 20th, 2018)– An exciting six round card of professional boxing promoted by Tom Brown’s TGB Promotions and Lou DiBella Promotions ON USA Fox Sports 1 (FS1) will be presented at MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland, on Sunday March 24, 2019, at 8 P.M. Eastern Standard Time, featuring Washington D.C.’s boxing brothers, Lamont ‘Havoc’ Peterson and Anthony ‘Hazardous’ Peterson in the featured co-main events.
Welterweight Lamont Peterson, 35-4-1 with 17 knockouts, will fight what amounts to a 12 round a welterweight eliminator bout against the 14-1 Joe Goossen trained former WAKO World Full Contact Kickboxing champion Sergei ‘Samurai’ Lipinets of Martuk, Kazakhstan. Lamont has been inactive since losing to Errol Spence Jr. in January of 2018. Lipinets has a comeback majority decision 10 win last August over Erick Bone, after losing his IBF World Super Lightweight title by 12 round decision early in 2018 to Mikey Garcia.
If the bout goes the 12 round distance, Peterson is favored to win by a close 12 round unanimous, split or majority decision in a bout which could feature some knockdowns. However, if the bout does not go the distance, Lipinets, with Joe Goossen in his corner, will knock out or stop Peterson, whose chin has been questionable.
Lipinets has knocked out two of every three opponents, and if his power finds Lamont, Lipinets could win by knockout in the middle rounds if it goes that far, or even earlier. A technical fight which goes the distance favors Lamont Peterson. This reporter does not expect this crossroads main event bout to go the distance.
Lamont Peterson has been around for 15 years, and has been inconsistent, though he has held shares of the world super lightweight and welterweight world titles at various times between 2999 and 2018. Lipinets held the IBF World Super Lightweight title in 2017, then lost it to Mikey Garcia in 2018 in his first defense. Lamont does not figure to be the same level of technical fighter as Garcia, but the outcome figures to go his way if he can survive all 12 rounds. The odds for him doing that against Lipinets say no.
Lamont’s younger brother, super lightweight contender Anthony Peterson, 37-1 with 24 knockouts, who has never held a title of any kind in 15 years boxing, is coming off a 10 round no contest with Luis Eduardo Florez in January 2018, is favored to win by 10 round split decision over 25-5 Dominican Argenis Mendez, who is coming off a 10 round decision win over Eddie Ramirez last May. The bout could be a close tactical war, and a knockdown could influence the scoring one way or the other if Mendez does better than expected.
‘The Quiet Assassin’, super welterweight Jamontay Clark, 13-1 with seven knockouts, Cincinnati, Ohio, is favored to win by 10 round unanimous decision over 10-0-1 southpaw Vernon Brown of Chicago, Illinois, in a prospects crossroads bout. 14-2 Mexican super lightweight southpaw prospect Jose Miguel Borrego is favored to win by eight round unanimous decision over 14-1-1 Jerry Thomas of Kansas. `15-2 California southpaw Aaron Coley is favored to win by eight-round decision over 21-4-1 Virginia middleweight Brandon ‘Bulldog’ Quarles. 2-0 Baltimore, Maryland, middleweight southpaw prospect Lorenzo Simpson is favored to win by second-round knockout over 0-2-1 Earl Henry of California.
