On February 22, Lamont Peterson defends his IBF 140-pound belt against former titleholder Kendall Holt. The 140-pound division is one of the hottest in the sport. Both of these guys sit on the fringes looking in and a win here could put the winner into the thick of a red-hot division. The question marks looming over this fight are numerous. The champion Peterson had some well-publicized problems. A May 2012 rematch with Amir Khan was scrapped when Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone. He managed to keep one of his belts and now looks to get things back on the right track. But the damage has been done. His reputation is in the crapper and he’s been inactive since late-2011.
