Lamont Peterson (born January 24, 1984) is an American professional boxer. Lamont competes in the light welterweight division and is the current IBF Light Welterweight Champion.


Lamont Peterson and his younger brother Anthony Peterson have been regularly featured on ESPN boxing telecasts and their story has been frequently discussed on the show. The Petersons were left without parents at an early age, with their father in prison and their mother suffering personal issues. The brothers were reportedly homeless on the streets of Washington, DC for several years. While homeless at age 10, they were noticed by Barry Hunter, a boxing coach. Over time, Hunter developed their boxing skills while mentoring them and both brothers morphed into amateur boxing stars.
He became 141 lbs US champion in 2003. He holds wins over Rock Allen in 2003, who beat him twice 2004 in the Olympic box-offs, Mike Alvarado and Andre Dirrell, as well as 2003 amateur world champion Willy Blain (in 2003).
In 2009, Peterson defeated Blain by 7th round TKO to win the Interim WBO Light Welterweight title.
He fought WBO Light Welterweight champion and Ring No. 1 Light Welterweight Timothy Bradley in late 2009, but lost by unanimous decision.
On the undercard of Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana, Lamont faced Ring No. 9 Light Welterweight Victor Ortiz on December 11 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas and fought to a controversial draw.

Peterson defeated Ring No. 2 ranked Light Welterweight Amir Khan for the WBA and IBF Light Welterweight titles in Washington, DC on December 10, 2011 by split decision. There was some controversy over the refereeing, due to two point deductions against Khan for pushing Peterson off him. A rematch planned for May 19, 2012 was cancelled following Peterson's positive test for synthetic testosterone. Peterso
