The most powerful figure in boxing has added two more names to his impressive stable of fighters, as Al Haymon has inked the Peterson brothers, Lamont and Anthony, according to a report at

Haymon has been very busy this year, adding the Petersons, Adonis Stevenson, Chad Dawson, Luis Collazo, and others. He works mostly with Golden Boy Promotions, and also advises such fighters as Floyd Mayweather, Marcos Maidana, Adrien Broner, Danny Garcia, Lucas Matthysse, Leo Santa Cruz, Deontay Wilder, Keith Thurman, Paulie Malignaggi, Erislandy Lara, Austin Trout, and many more.

Lamont Peterson (32-2-1, 16 KO) last fought in January, successfully defending his IBF junior welterweight title against mandatory challenger Dierry Jean in a Showtime main event. Anthony Peterson (32-1, 21 KO) has become a stalled lightweight prospect. At age 28, his career hasn't really rebounded from his HBO-televised DQ loss to Brandon Rios in 2010. He's fought just twice since then, once in 2011 and once in 2013, winning both fights against lower-level foes.

Currently, Anthony Peterson is slated to return on March 21's ESPN Friday Night Fights card against Marcos Jimenez. Lamont Peterson does not yet have a next fight scheduled.
