Lamont Peterson has been through two tough fights at catchweights between 140 and 147 pounds this year, and been on both sides of majority decisions. He lost a close one to Danny Garcia in April, but righted himself Saturday at EagleBank Arena in Fairfax, Virginia, with a win over a game Felix Diaz.
Prichard Colon came into Saturday's fight against Terrel Williams at 16-0 with 13 knockouts, with 14 of those fights occurring in the last two years, and riding a wave of big-time prospect goodwill. Through four rounds, he was cruising, showing what all the buzz was about.
A tight split decision, where four total rounds across three cards proved the margin of victory, is the kind of haunting loss that could leave you sitting alone in the dark at 4 a.m. watching fight replay after fight replay.
