Undefeated Travis Peterkin is planning March 30 return
Undefeated light heavyweight Travis Peterkin is eyeing a March 30 return to the ring at BB King’s in Times Square after drawing with fellow undefeated prospect Lenin Castillo last August at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, matchmaker Felipe Gomez told RingTV.com on Monday.
While Castillo demolished Marcelo Tavares in just 42 seconds last month, Peterkin (15-0-1, 7 knockouts) has been sidelined with various physical injuries, delaying his return, Gomez said.
Chris Galeano will likely defend his USA New York State middleweight title against DeVaun Lee in the main event of the March 30 show in another of Lou DiBella’s “Broadway Boxing” cards, Gomez said.
Galeano won the minor regional title last November by out-pointing Shawn Cameron at the Aviator Sports Complex in Brooklyn.
Lee earned his chance by upsetting previously undefeated Ian Green by majority decision on Jan. 27 at BB King’s. It was the third fight that has been decided by a majority decision for Lee in his brief, eight-fight career.
