The welterweights headline tonight’s PBC show on FS1.
Tonight at 6 pm ET, PBC returns to FS1 with a card headlined by a pair of former world titleholders, as Lamont Peterson takes on Sergey Lipinets in the welterweight main event.
Peterson (35-4-1, 17 KO) and Lipinets (14-1, 10 KO) have both won world titles at 140 pounds, and Peterson also won a belt at 147. This is pretty much must-win for both if they want to stay relevant at 147 right now, which is a lucrative position to be in given the number of big-name fighters in the division, and the fact that pretty much all of them except Terence Crawford are with PBC.
Peterson hasn’t fought since a Jan. 2018 loss to Errol Spence Jr, where he took a good beating and was pulled after seven rounds. Lipinets last fought in Aug. 2018, winning a questionable decision over Erick Bone.
The main card, which begins at 8 pm ET, also features the return of Lamont’s brother Anthony Peterson (37-1, 24 KO), a former lightweight prospect now campaigning at 140 pounds, who has fought sporadically since 2010, when he lost to Brandon Rios. Peterson will face former 130-pound titleholder Argenis Mendez (25-5-1, 12 KO).
The prelim bouts will feature Brandon Quarles (21-4-1, 10 KO) taking on Aaron Coley (15-2-1, 7 KO) in an eight-round middleweight bout; Lorenzo Simpson (2-0, 2 KO) against Earl Henry (0-1-1, 0 KO) in a four-round junior middleweight fight; and the opener will pit Cobia Breedy (12-0, 4 KO) against Fernando Fuentes (14-7-1, 4 KO) in an eight-round super featherweight battle.
Wil Esco will be on the call.
