Both Petersons looked sharp tonight in winning efforts at the Par-a-Dice casino
01.09.06 - By Jason Zimmerman: Anthony (20-0) stayed behind his guard and worked off his sharp jab, opening up the attack in the later rounds and easily controlling a defensive minded Armando Cordoba (21-27-2) to take a unanimous 6 round decision. I scored it 60-54 for Peterson.

Lamont (18-0) looked very sharp against rugged Mexican fighter Omar Bernal (25-9-3). Bernal landed good body shots early, but Lamont's speed and movement ultimately proved too much. Peterson mixed his attack well and worked the angles against the forward moving Bernal, ending the fight in the 7th round with a brutal single left hook to the body that crumpled the Mexican to the canvas for the count. I had it 59-55 for Peterson at the time of the stoppage.
