Cory said, "My brother is my running partner and trainer, he helps me with my training for my fights."
Peterson continued, "I have 3 other trainers, Steve Samborn, John Militello, and Tom Jablonski, my manager, who all give up their time to help me out, with money out of their own pockets and they are all great coaches so I would like to give them credit for all that they are doing." "If it wasn't for all 4 of them I wouldn't be where I am today."
Peterson added, "I also have a great deal of support from my fiancée Veronica Galindo, my son, Quinn Alvarado, 16yrs, and my daughter Alicia Galindo, 18yrs, and her friends," Peterson said. "My Promoter Ron Deleon from Lansing, who promotes me in Lansing and throughout Michigan is also a big part of my career," Peterson said.
Peterson is in great physical and mental shape. He says he is very determined and his goal is to make it into the top ten Welterweight Contenders in the world. Peterson hopes to one day be a Welterweight World Champion.
His training schedule includes, eating right, a work out at the
YMCA every morning for 2 hours, with cardio, including swimming and sauna. Next, he runs with his brother Scott about 3 to 5 miles a day. Then at 6:00 pm till 9:00 pm he works out at the garage/gym, using all the boxing training equipment, hitting the Pads and working the abs.
Peterson said, "My inspirations have been my Mom, Judy Bialobrzeski and My Dad, Mike Peterson, who died while I was incarcerated in 1993. I always said I would dedicate my pro boxing career to my dad once I got out and now I'm doing that," Peterson went on to say.
"My Dad was a great coach who dedicated himself to train me and that's why I'm so dedicated now. I've missed out on alot, because of wrong choices I made at an early age. I know if he could see me now he would be proud at what I'm doing and how I've changed my life around." Peterson said.
