Peterson had not fought in 14 months since testing positive for synthetic testosterone, which caused the cancellation of a rematch with Amir Khan set for last May.
Peterson believes a long spell between bouts, resulting from a positive test for synthetic testosterone and the subsequent cancellation of last May's rematch with Amir Khan, will ultimately give him extra fuel.

"I don't know if this weight class is for me anymore," Holt said. "My body just wasn't responding (during the fight). My body and my mind just weren't on the same page."
I don't," Holt said. "I've been pro 12 years. This is going to be the first fight that I've ever walked into the ring with an actual game plan. So, you know, that's how serious I took this fight. It's a fight that could change my life, my kid's life."
