An interesting short segment with former world champion Peterson ahead of the Lamont Peterson vs David Avanesyan fight tonight in Ohio.
Lamont Peterson vs David Avanesyan will be the bout supporting tonight’s Adrien Broner main event fight against Adrian Granados.
It will also see a world title on the line in the form of the WBA (regular) welterweight.
It’s a match that bookmakers seem to be giving Peterson an ever so slight edge in, but one that is a competitive battle nonetheless.
Avanesyan is definitely a live dog in this fight.
Speaking with PBC YouTube ahead of the fight, check out this interesting short Lamont Peterson vs David Avanesyan segment where Peterson has this to say on success in a boxing career:
Many will remember the Washington man for his battle with the UK’s Amir Khan.
A fight that Peterson won but many Khan supporters felt their man deserved to get the nod in.
Peterson has shared the ring with plenty of credible opposition over the years besides Khan to his credit.
The likes of Victor Ortiz, Danny Gacia, Felix Diaz, Lucas Matthyysse and Timothy Bradley spring to mind.
At 33 he’s now a very seasoned campaigner in the ring and will be looking at tonight’s opportunity as one that could really catapult him back towards the top of the 147lbs pool.
