Peterson vs Jimenez: ESPN2 FNF from the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in California saw I.B.F. Jr. welterweight champion Anthony Peterson score a one-sided decision win over Dominican slugger Marcos Jimenez.

The 30-year old Marcos “El Tigre” Jimenez lacked the vigor of his namesake, refusing to let his hands go against the much busier Peterson who’s fist warrant him the nickname “buzzsaw”.
