My goal is to always get better every fight, so expect image source to see a great Lamont Peterson on August 9. Washington, DC native Peterson (32-2-1, 16 KOs) faces a veteran in Santana (29-4, 20 KOs) who is ranked 13th in the world by the IBF. Peterson says that he definitely respects his challenger. Ive watched him fight. He can fight, Peterson said. A lot of people dont know him so they dont think he deserves a title shot. Hes been in the game a long time and a lot of people dont know what it takes to stay in the game for eight, nine, 10 years.
