Coming up in less than two weeks is the very intriguing showdown between Lamont Peterson and Lucas Matthysse. The Peterson vs. Matthysse fight will be shown live on Showtime on May 18th, and takes place in Atlantic City. Right here, you can find their official Peterson vs. Matthysse video preview and promo. Take a look.
On Saturday, May 18th, Lamont Peterson takes on Lucas Matthysse in a 12-round welterweight match no boxing fan should miss! Also, catch Devon Alexander vs. Lee Purdy live on SHOWTIME Championship Boxing.
The annoying thing about this fight, as you can see from that description, is that they're not actually fighting within the constraints of the 140-lb division. That means no titles at stake, and their merits for becoming the number 1 guy at junior welterweight clearly are diminished.
Also on the card is the return of Devon Alexander, as he takes on Lee Purdy, in replacement of his fight against Kell Brook which has been pushed back on multiple occasions.
