From Fightnews.com (1/30/12) – Poland’s Kamil “Little Tyson” Laszczyk (7-0, 5 KO) won the Mid-South featherweight belt during the main event in Tunica, Mississippi, winning 60-54 on the scorecards after a hard battle in every round against seasoned Texas champion Samuel Sanchez (7-3, 3 KO). “It was a lot tougher fight that I expected. Sanchez came to fight, had two months to prepare and never backed down. I liked this challenge but it was a real test versus a fighter with a lot more experience in American-style boxing that I had. At least until this night,” said 21-year-old Laszczyk, a Polish national champion fighting now for Global Boxing in North Bergen, New Jersey. continued at Fightnews.com

Scores were 113-112, 113-112 Peterson, 114-111 Khan.

All 3 judges scored the bout a shutout for Peterson at 80-72. Attah had no answer for the crisp combinations that Peterson unloaded on him over the duration of the fight, but showed a lot of heart as he was able to hang in for 8 rounds, but had no answer for anything Peterson threw at him.
