So we have a fight in the main event folks.
Two-weight world champion Lamont Peterson looked in tip-top condition, as did the champion Errol Spence Jr.
While Spence starts as a strong favorite Peterson is certainly a live dog in the fight if he turns up at his very best. He’ll need to take the fight to Spence right from the get go surely if he’s to have any chance, in an attempt to take Spence out of his comfort zone.
