    I thought he looked very good, I'm a huge fan of both Petersons, don't find them boring at all.

    Needs to step up though. Definitely time, maybe past time.

    Very impressed last night. Looks a very good fighter.

    Got caught a few times when he didn't need to take the risk, but this is Boxing.

    His record doesn't imply a good punch, maybe he was wary of punching himself out while he was in no danger of losing on points. I liked his jab, but he did seem a little slow on his feet, yet it wasn't really good opposition last night.

    He looked ok. But I'm not big on the Peterson brothers.

    The Peterson's make me think of this song

    Great skills, average power. He got caught a few times too and didn't look too clever. I think he'll be found wanting at the top level.

    Been following both brothers for a while now. About time they stepped it up tho, they have been thereabouts for a couple of years now. As a few others have said they have good skills but maybe not the power and ring smarts to make it big.

    Twenty four fights and he's fighting somebody with thirteen defeats. And they say British fighters are over-protected.

    Difference is if he was British he'd be a WBO champ by now

    I can't see him beating either of the guys who fought for the WBO title on Saturday night.

    I'm also huge on the Petersons.

    It is time they step up but to be fair Rogelio is a good fighter. Local guy but very tough. I can't complain about them being brought up like they are, I think promoters are finding out more and more that the 4 year plan for top Olympians/Amateurs is too risky and not worth it. They have matched him with an abundance of different styles which is key unlike Khan who got matched up solely against complete powder puffs with 0 KO power until his last go. Mixing and matching against lower competition is definitely worth it. That's what they did with Pavlik and he got to the top ranks having already seen pretty much everything thrown at him just a few skill levels below championship level. That's what they are doing with Andre Ward and now what they are doing with the Petersons.

    I haven't seen the fight last night but really want to. From some comments on here it seems that they think the brothers put it on cruise control a bit to often. Very similar to the main criticism of Andre Ward but obviously I don't mind that.

    I hope to see the fight tomorrow.

    Also, before the fight Arum told Lamont that he is next in line to fight the winner of Holt-Torres. Obviously the controversial nature of the fight might delay that but I think those are two winnable fights for him. Especially against Holt. Torres would no doubt check Peterson's chin but going all the way back to his amateur days he's always had a good chin but then again no one in his amateur days hit as hard as Torres.

    The point is Peterson hasnt even got a title shot yet, but guys like Froch, Rees, Lockett etc get shots at titles doing just as little as Lamont. Dot act as tho US fighters are protected more than British fighters just cos one US fighter has had an easy run.

    I didn't say they were. I'm pleased to see that we both agree that there are cases of US fighters being over-protected.
