By Allan Fox: Former Light-welterweight Winners Lamont Peterson and Sergey Lipinets, and long time 140 Pound Competitor Anthony Peterson will Undoubtedly Be facing former IBF super featherweight champion Argenis Mendez That Sunday, March 24 on Premier Boxing Champions on Fs-1 from the MGM National Harbor, at Oxon Hill, Maryland.
Both fighters were beaten, and both cannot afford yet another loss for them to remain in the mixture at 147. Peterson and Lipinets were in their best when they were fighting 140, which is where they both held names for a time. Given that the two have moved up to welterweight, theyrsquo;re fighting at a weight class in the place where they don’t have any advantages over their opposition. The winner of the Peterson vs. Lipinets fight on Sunday will stay while in the running to get a title shot 147.
Former two branch world champion Lamont ‘Havoc’ Peterson (35-4-1, 17 KOs) hasn’t battled 14 months since being discontinued from the 7th round by International Boxing Federation welterweight winner Errol ‘the facts ’ Spence Jr. last year on January 20 at the Barclays Center at Brooklyn, New York. Peterson, who at one time held the WBA ‘regular’ welterweight title, has been inactive ever since this loss. With all the time out of the ring, it’s uncertain if Peterson still gets the love for Boxing.
The loss to Spence obviously was a disappointing one for Peterson, especially with the manner he was ruled that the whole fight. But Peterson needs to have left his return into the ring a long time go instead of sitting inactive all of this moment. Becoming inactive for 14 months has resulted in Peterson being dropped by the top 15 positions at welterweight. It shouldn’t even really be an issue for Peterson to get ranked quickly at the top ten if he defeats Lipinets on Sunday. Peterson will likely be in the running to get a world title shot against champions Spence, Shawn Porter, Manny Pacquiao and Keith Thurman. If Peterson had been fighting all this time, then he would be an option for both Thurman, Porter or Pacquiao for one of their voluntary defenses. Peterson is by using Premier Boxing Champions, making him a wonderful candidate to fight some of the champions.
Lipinets lost his IBF light welterweight title last year at a 12 round unanimous decision conquer to Mikey Garcia at a competitive fight. The scores are wide in favor of this more popular Garcia, however the actual fight was close. Lipinets held his own losing to Garcia. Lipinets lacked the Boxing skills to successfully do the project against Mikey in that fight. The close call that Lipinets had beating Bone revealed clearly he really should have been a world champion at light-welterweight in the first place. Lipinets might happen to be destroyed by Terence Crawford if the both of them had faced one another a year ago. Crawford vacated his IBF 140 lb title and proceeded as much as 147 after the International Boxing Federation purchased him to guard him against him. In case Lipinets had to face the hard hitting Ivan Baranchyk for its vacant IBF 140 lb belt, then he likely would have lost to him seriously. Baranchyk currently holds the IBF 140 lb title after beating Anthony Yigit with a seventh round stoppage past October to acquire the vacant IBF belt after Mikey Garcia vacated it.
Anthony Peterson vs. Argenis Mendez preview
Much like his brother Lamont Peterson, the 34-year-old light-welterweight Anthony Peterson (37-1, 24, KOs) is coming out of an extended 14 month layoff since his 10-round no competition against Luis Eduardo Florez last season in January. It’therefore unclear why Anthony and Lamont are inactive for the exact same time period. Whatever the scenario, Anthony Peterson needs to measure the amount of his opponent. He’s been facing strictly mediocre resistance since losing to Brandon Rios with a seventh round disqualification at September 2010. That was a fight that Peterson was becoming commanded from Rios. Peterson was disqualified for projecting way too many low blows. Some Boxing buffs think Peterson had himself disqualified purposely so as not to avoid getting knocked out by Rios. Even though Peterson hasn’t even lost a fight ever since that time , he’s not fought anybody talented in the previous nine years of the career. It’s overwhelming to attempt to understand Peterson never stepped this up back after his loss into Rios. In other word, Peterson hasn’t even been fighting contenders. He’s also not been especially busy with his career. Peterson fought in 20-16, not in all in 2017, and once in 2018. He’s now been out from the ring for over a year since his last fight in January 2018.
Despite beating former lightweight world champion Miguel Vazquez at 2015, Mendez’s career has imploded with him losing to Robert Easter Jr. and Luke Campbell. On the bright side, Mendez has won his last two fights, beating Eddie Ramirez and Ivan Redkach. Mendez looked good in both fights.
Mendez has to be regarded as the favorite against Anthony Peterson. Mendez, who originates from the Dominica Republic, at this time was a for a small time period some sort of winner. Peterson never climbed to this time in his Boxing career. The loss to Brandon Rios seemed to shoot all the air from Peterson’so tires, leaving him on the medial side of the street, doing nothing by his career. Mendez has the power, experience, Boxing abilities and he’therefore younger fighter of these two, which is not easy to trust. Mendez has more mileage than Peterson, but merely because Peterson has been doing nothing with his career since his lack of Rios.
