Junior Welterweight 28 1 1 (14)
Last Year s Ranking: Unranked
Status Report: Only a special fighter like Tim Bradley could make Peterson seem as impotent as Bradley did in their meeting last December. Sure, Bradley won by a combined 32 points. That says more about Bradley than it does about Peterson, who beat Damian Fuller (KO 7) next time out and drew with Victor Ortiz (D 10) in December. Peterson can fight, and we predict he ll land quite a bit higher on this list next year. So long as he stays away from a rematch with Bradley.
Future: How about a rematch with Ortiz?
