Golden Boy Promotions acted quickly in releasing a statement clearing the name of their fighter, Lamont Peterson. Peterson was accused of failing a drug test after his 8th round KO of Kendall Holt.

Golden Boy had this to say about the situation:

Contrary to earlier erroneous media reports, Lamont Peterson did not fail a post-fight drug test following his successful IBF Junior Welterweight World Championship defense against Kendall Holt on Friday, February 22 in Washington, DC.  In fact, Peterson tested negative for all banned substances on the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) Full Menu as well as human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG)and luteinizing hormone (LH).
Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions had this to say about the situation:

“We are very pleased that there has been clarification that Lamont Peterson did not test positive for any banned substances as reported inaccurately earlier today,”

“Today’s incident exemplifies the importance of accurate fact checking prior to reporting news.  Golden Boy Promotions looks forward to Lamont Peterson’s next fight and furthering his career.”

Peterson’s next fight is scheduled for May 18th against Lucas Mathysse on Showtime. Peterson can now continue his training and regain his focus with a clear name and conscience.
