Anthony Peterson won a 10-round unanimous decision over Samuel Kotey “Unbelievable” Neequaye. The two fighters fought in a phone booth style fight at close range with both giving and taking at points of each round.
Peterson landed the more telling blows throughout the fight, but Neequaye worked hard and landed his shots in spurts. It was an ebb-and-flow bout and while Neequaye found success up top, Peterson’s work to the body was effective enough to keep Samuel off at times.
The judges scored the fight for Peterson with scores of 100-90, 97-93 and 96-94. I thought the fight was close and will watch it again and rescore it. Watching it live, I scored it 96-94 for Peterson. Peterson moves to 37-1, 24 KOs. Neequaye drops to 22-2, 15 KOs.
“I’m happy to be back. It felt good to get touched and get some work in. I haven’t gone 10 rounds since March of 2014.
