Anthony Peterson returns on March 21 for Friday night fight

Former lightweight contender Anthony Peterson will pursue his third straight victory against Marcos Jimenez on March 21 on ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, Goossen Tutor Promotions and Headbangers Promotions announced on Wednesday.

The younger brother of IBF junior welterweight titleholder Lamont Peterson, Peterson (32-1, 21 knockouts) will fight Jimenez (20-4, 13 KOs) on the undercard of a main event between junior middleweights Vanes Martirosyan (33-1-1, 21 KOs) and Mario Lozano (28-4, 22 KOs) at The Morongo Casino Resort Spa in Cabazon, Calif.

Anthony Peterson, 28, was last in the ring for a second-round stoppage of Dominic Salcido last May that followed a unanimous decision over Daniel Attah in December 2011. Prior to facing Attah, Peterson lost by seventh-round disqualification to Brandon Rios in September 2010.
