Lamont Peterson takes on Felix Diaz Jr in an afternoon appetizer on NBC.

Suzanne Teresa/Premier Boxing Champions

This afternoon at 4 pm EST on NBC, Premier Boxing Champions' fourth card of the week goes live from Fairfax, Virginia, as former junior welterweight titleholder Lamont Peterson returns to action against 2008 Olympic gold medalist Felix Diaz Jr in a welterweight main event.

Peterson (33-3-1, 17 KO) is coming off of a debated loss to Danny Garcia in April, while Diaz (17-0, 8 KO) fought on the undercard that night, beating Gabriel Bracero in a ten-round decision. Diaz, 31, has really not stood out as a pro after winning gold in Beijing for the Dominican Republic, but he's got talent and might be someone who just needs a fight to get up for, and this is easily his biggest shot to date.

In the co-feature, we'll see two undefeated, tall welterweight prospects, as six-footers Prichard Colon (16-0, 13 KO) and Terrel Williams (14-0, 12 KO) meet in a 10-round bout, which replaces the canceled Andre Dirrell-Blake Caparello fight on the broadcast.

ROUND BY ROUND

LAMONT PETERSON vs FELIX DIAZ JR

Round 1: Diaz throwing combinations as Peterson lingers inside. Both guys targeting the body. Peterson seems determined to nullify his height advantage. Peterson doing some decent work inside, clips Diaz with a left hook. Uppercut from Peterson, then Diaz right back with a couple of power shots. Peterson stepped back on that. Peterson with a wild, running uppercut that lands. Diaz with another good charge at the end of the round, Peterson lands a body shot. Fun round. Could be a fun fight. Peterson 10-9

Round 2: Diaz is WAY sharper here than the times I’ve seen him as a pro. Either he’s stepping it up or I saw him on nights where he didn’t care. He's doing some really nice work in combination, and using his feet well. Peterson bulling him now in the final minute, drilling him with a hook to the body and then an uppercut gets in to the head. Peterson pushing Diaz into the ropes and smashing him up. Peterson 10-9, 20-18

Round 3: Diaz is very game and looking good but Peterson is physically bigger and using that advantage after seeming intent on giving it away in round one. Lamont may have just been feeling him out. Being the taller, bigger man AND the better inside fighter is a hell of a combo, and tough for Diaz to overcome. Peterson using a long jab here, too. He's starting to take over at any range. Peterson 10-9, 30-27

Round 4: Peterson whacking to the body early in this round, then a right hand upstairs catches Diaz. Two left uppercuts inside from Peterson. Diaz throwing shots, trying to find an opening, but this is clearly a very tough matchup for him. Peterson really in control now. Diaz is trying but he's physically overmatched here. Peterson looking good offensively, and willing to abandon his defense. Peterson 10-9, 40-36

Round 5: Diaz is firing away about a minute in here, tying to catch Lamont napping. Diaz to the body, trying to find a way into this fight. Really a strong output this round from Diaz. Lamont still doing some work but Diaz is firing up in there. Diaz 10-9, Peterson 49-46

Round 6: Diaz has sort of taken over offensively in this fight. Lamont usually starts slow, picks it up. Today he's started fast, slowing down. Lamont only has x amount of big stuff for any fight. Diaz 10-9, Peterson 58-56

Round 7: Diaz, all 5'5" of him, is walking Peterson down now. Crowd trying to rally Peterson but he's looking a little lost right now. Diaz is frustrating him. He also confuses Lamont with some sick dance moves. Diaz 10-9, Peterson 67-66

Round 8: Peterson's having a hell of a time and Diaz has made adjustments. Lamont has not. But he lands a nice body shot late in the round and has a nice final minute or so. Good round. Diaz may have done more good work. Diaz 10-9, 76-76

Round 9: Lamont looking to land in the corner again, but Diaz gets out quicker now. Diaz with an almost leaping lead left hand, lands a couple times. Diaz now bullying Peterson! Peterson felt some shots there. Diaz landing good shots, tags Peterson with a hard left as Lamont looks to bomb away in the corner late in the round. Diaz winds up with his head under the top rope, Peterson hits him in the back. They talk a little at the bell. Peterson 10-9, 86-85

Round 10: Both guys battling, throwing shots, this has just been a damn good fight. Not exceptional, not super dramatic, but a joy to watch. Fun stuff on both sides. Good action. Diaz bounces back well this round. Peterson keeps squaring up and getting clipped. Diaz 10-9, 95-95

Round 11: Diaz staying strong this round, Peterson giving this away somewhat with body language, too, leaning away a lot and just looking like the more tired fighter. Diaz 10-9, 105-104

Round 12: Diaz coming out firing in the opening minute here, Lamont needs to make some kind of stand but he's just not doing it. Diaz dancing while he walks down Peterson.

PRICHARD COLON vs TERREL WILLIAMS

Round 1: Both guys throwing some shots, Williams with some nice counter hooks, Colon leading the action more and gets a bit more done. These two are here to make a mark, at least so far. Good stuff. Colon 10-9

Round 2: Williams still looking to work the counters, Colon's output not as high at the moment. Evenly matched thus far. Colon with a nice combination, but Williams coming back at him. Williams strays a bit low on a body shot as they clinch. Uppercut from Colon gets in. Colon 10-9, 20-18

Round 3: Colon slips throwing a punch, no knockdown on that. He's continuing to box effectively, but Williams is looking to establish his jab and is right there with him. Colon nicks another round, he's just that little bit better. Colon 10-9, 30-27

Round 4: Continuing on with the same sort of vibe here -- Williams is not out of this fight, but he's a step behind Colon all the way. Colon is dictating how this fight is going, and winning the rounds. Colon 10-9, 40-36

Round 5: Williams hurts Colon early in the round with a right, and shakes him up a bit later. Colon with a massive low blow that knocks Williams to the canvas. Williams hurting, gets up, and makes a THROAT CUT GESTURE. Joe Cooper docks two points from Colon, ruling it an intentional shot. Cooper also warns Williams not to retaliate. I think he's a good referee, honestly. The rest of the round is pretty standard fare, nothing nasty. Williams 10-9, -2 for Colon, Colon 47-46

Round 6: This round is starting very chippy and Joe Cooper won't have any of that, either. He's throwing out DQ warnings. Williams is working more now, Colon starting to hold more frequently. Williams 10-9, 56-56

Round 7: Williams starts fast this round, landing some good, clean shots, and he's leading the action at this point. He's stalking Colon, who seems to be fading. Colon's offense has disappeared. Colon falls over on a rabbit punch, gut feeling is there are some theatrics here, as gut feeling said earlier with Williams rolling around on the low blow. Williams not buying any of this. Cooper takes a point from Williams now as the action resumes, because he's JOE GODDAMN COOPER, Williams just sprinting at Colon. Williams 10-9, -1 for Williams, 65-65

Round 8: Colon fought on 8/1 and 9/11, and worth wondering if he may be overworked. He's really sort of hit a wall overall in this fight. Short fights in those outings, but that's a lot of training. He does bounce back fairly well this round, though, and I think he might have won this one. He's got plenty of chance to pull this one out. Colon 10-9, 75-74

Round 9: These last two rounds are very crucial, obviously. This is a point apart one way or the other, it would seem. Williams lands a good shot and Colon is falling into him. Now Colon is hurt, Williams bombing away and Colon is down! Right back into it and Colon goes down immediately on the first shot back. Huge last minute turnaround. Williams 10-7, 94-92

After the round, Colon's team begins taking his gloves off. When told there's still another round, they try to get them back on. Referee Cooper steps in to call this off since there's not enough time to get him back out there. So either they screwed up, they tried to buy time, or it was a weird way to give up without quitting. Either way, it's over. Williams DQ-9
