Promotional rights for the fight were won by Headbangers Boxing, a promotional agency run by Barry Hunter, Peterson’s trainer and manager. He was the only bidder one Tuesday and so he won the rights. Peterson will be getting $37,500 for the fight while Judah will get $12,500.
It should be noted here that Peterson’s last fight earned him a lot more than this one. He went head to head with the then WBA and IBF unified light welterweight titlist Amir Khan to earn $650,000.
“The fight must be done in 90 days, or by Jan. 2, 2013,” said IBF championships chairman Lindsey Tucker.
While talking to ESPN.com regarding the fight, Judah said he hardly cares for the financial aspect of the fight.
