ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- Keep coming back here for updates on the undercard for Showtime's main event of Lucas Matthysse-Lamont Peterson (junior welterweight). It's a DEEP card, in terms of number of fights, which I previewed here. Highlights -- among the "names", anyway -- include Anthony Peterson, Shawn Porter and Devon Alexander, as well as other brothers of famous fighters or 2012 Olympians. Because the first fight was at 3:30 p.m., I opted to show up a little late and therefor missed the first three bouts, all TKOs for lightweights Robert Easter, Jr. and Jamel Herring and bantamweight Rau'Shee Warren. The live results will go in reverse chronological order. ****** One of the brothers on the card was Anthony Peterson, and the lightweight looked good for two rounds before the bout was farcically stopped. Peterson apparently brok Dominic Salcido's nose and the doctor waived it off, but Salcido told me he wanted to and was able to continue. His honker did look swollen and broken, but he wasn't bleeding at all and it was weird. It was good that Peterson got back in the ring after fighting so rarely lately, and he looked sharp and powerful and accurate, and rarely got hit in return. It's just unfortunate that it had to end in such a way as to upset the gathered 20 people who arrived early and wanted to see a bout end legimately.
