Lucas Matthysse and Lamont Peterson are working hard for their upcoming match, scheduled to take place on May 18th at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City. Peterson (31-1-1, 16 KO's) vs. Matthysse (33-2, 31 KO's) will be the Showtime televised fight to Devon Alexander vs. Kell Brook will headline the show. Golden Boy Promotions announced earlier today that Peterson-Matthysse will take place at the catch-weight of 141-pounds, which means Peterson's IBF junior welterweight title, and Matthysse's WBC interim-title, are not at stake.
The fight is technically being billed as a "twelve round welterweight" match. Matthysse, the WBC's mandatory challenger to champion Danny Garcia, would likely remain in that position regardless of the Peterson outcome.
