Peterson Takes Unanimous 10 Round Decision

24 year old Anthony Peterson (29-0, 19 KO's) found himself in a tough junior welterweight battle with 30 year old Luis Arceo (21-9-2, 14 KO's) last night. In the beginning of the fight, Arceo brought a lot of pressure and was out fighting Peterson, landing fluid combinations. Peterson was trying to hold him off by landing counter left hooks to Arceo's body. In the 2nd round, Peterson connected with a solid left hook to the body and head. In round 3, Arceo threw many punches and forced Peterson to be on the defensive. Everlast and Ringside punching bags and save with $2.95 shipping!

As the fight got into the middle rounds, Peterson was the one landing the harder, cleaner shots. Arceo was throwing more punches, but Peterson possessed more power. Peterson had the advantage in hand speed, but the fight was very competitive due to the lack of an effective jab by Peterson. In the 4th round, Peterson landed hard shots to Arceo's body. In round 6, Peterson stunned Arceo with a left hook to the head and followed it by landing an overhand right. Peterson started to take control of the fight and was really starting to beat Arceo to the punch. In the last 10 seconds of round 10, Peterson nailed Arceo with consecutive left hooks to the head, while Arceo's back was against the ropes.
