Peterson vs. Jean

Lamont Peterson defeats Dierry Jean in Front of Home Crowd

(Photo credit: Tom Casino/Showtime) By Justin Jones & Paul “Paparazzi” Jones: Washington, DC — There was no better way to describe Lamont Peterson’s performance last night at the DC Armory against challenger Dierry Jean other than “locked in.”

Peterson (32-2-1, 16 KOs), the reigning IBF Jr. Welterweight Champ, looked like a starved beast ready to attack as he stalked Jean (25-1, 17 KOs) from the second round on. The DC native landed thudding shots to the body, head turning left hooks, and stinging right hands en route to a unanimous decision victory in Showtime Championship Boxing’s main event (official scores were: 118-111, 116-112, and 115-113).

Although Peterson bested Jean in most of their exchanges and was the clear aggressor, Jean didn’t back down or go away easily. Indeed, Jean landed a good number of power shots of his own, and showed a sturdy chin. It was apparent, however, that Jean is not among the elite at 140 pounds. Continue reading

Peterson beats Jean by 12 round decision; Charlos decisions Rosado

IBF light welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (32-2-1, 16 KO’s) put on a body punching clinic on Saturday night in giving Dierry Jean (25-1, 17 KO’s) a beating in winning a 12 round unanimous decision at the DC Armory, Washington, District of Columbia, USA. Jean proved to be a very poor fighter, and not nearly powerful or skilled enough to give Peterson any kind of fight.

Jean was taking vicious body shots the entire fight, and after the first few rounds, he wore down and was pretty much just a punching bag for Peterson to pound on for 12 rounds. Jean would land an occasional home run punch every now and then, but it was very rare for him to land anything. Jean mostly looked like a wild fighter with little skills or technique.

by Chris Carlso, photos © Paul “Paparazzi” Jones/ESB — Counter programming was the norm last year and this Saturday night marks the first battle in the ongoing war that turned cold between HBO a.k.a.
