Gallery: Lamont Peterson outclasses Dierry Jean, Jermell Charlo beats Gabriel Rosado on Showtime

Lamont Peterson and Jermell Charlo were the winners last night in Washington, DC, with Peterson defending his IBF junior welterweight belt, and Charlo moving closer to a possible title shot at 154.

Paulie Malignaggi, SHOWTIME Sports

"Lamont clearly proved that he is still a force to be reckoned with at 140 pounds."

Lamont Peterson

"I knew that this was his [Jean's] first title fight and this is a big stage. I knew regardless of what he said he would have some type of nerves. At the end of the day I was in shape and I was able to hold the rounds. I would like to be considered the best 140-pound fighter in the world before I leave [the division]. If it means Danny Garcia is next then that's what it is."

About getting over his loss to Lucas Matthysse

"At the end of that night I sat and thought all night and I came to an understanding of why I lost. Then I moved on. I was over it in 24 hours."

"I love my city. My city loves me."

Dierry Jean

"I think it is just a matter of experience. Life goes on you know. I am definitely leaving with my head held high. I have all of my fans with me and I fought a hard fight."

Jermell Charlo

"Rosado is a tough fighter. He came to fight. He did exactly what we trained for. He's my strongest fight to date. He did what he had to do. It's about being in shape. It's about being in shape to do what we do."

"Once I saw the eye leaking, I told myself let's finish this eye up and see what the doctors do. I told you if his eye holds up, we are going to get some work in."

Gabriel Rosado

"It's kind of like my Achilles heel. It's really tender so it just gets cut early. It is what it is. I am kind of... it's disappointed. I am forced to fight this way, aggressive. Charlo boxed a good fight but it's a little frustrating that I have to fight a different style. I have to fight aggressively [because of the judges]. It's crazy because I didn't get a round."
