Earlier today in Washington DC, Lamont Peterson held a public workout in advance of his upcoming title defense against Dierry Jean, also slated for the nation's capital and his hometown, on January 25. Right here, you can take a look at a collection of photos from Peterson's workout.
Peterson looked focused and determined in the session, and sporting that grisly beard, he's clearly all business right now. He has a lot to prove, particularly to his critics, who rightly point out that Peterson is somehow able to make a title defense despite the fact that his last fight was a devastating knockout loss to somebody within his own division.
That was a non-title fight though, and Peterson still has the belt. Now, he's looking to take care of mandatory challenger Jean, and then move back into the picture for another big fight opportunity.
Stay tuned over the coming days and weeks for more updates on Peterson vs. Jean as fight night approaches.
