Armory on Friday, February 22, 2012, in Washington, DC. Peterson went on to win by technical knockout in the 8th round. Finally, after 14 months, Peterson (30-1-1) defended his belt against former World Boxing Organization junior welterweight champion Kendall Holt (28-5) on Feb.?22 at the D.C. Armory. When Peterson steps into the ring, it will be following the longest layoff of his professional career. Since his upset of Amir Khan by split decision to claim the IBF and World Boxing Association titles, Peterson’s boxing career has been on hiatus largely because of a positive test for a banned substance.
