Errol Spence Jr vs Lamont Peterson IB
January 20, New York
Welterweight title fight Errol Spence has been on the radar of boxing fans for years as a universally recognized top prospect. But now, he has emerged as one of the premier top talents after traveling overseas to Sheffield, England and delivering punishment to former titleholder Kell Brook in his coming out party. Now, in his first defense, he takes on Lamont Peterson, who has fought many of boxing’s top contenders and always comes to compete. He recently came off a 16 month layoff and won a competitive decision against David Avanesyan.
