If Khan doesnt come out like a gangbuster and KO Peterson by swarming him with punches, i think peterson could make it a loooong ugly fight. I can see a lot of holding in those 1st few rounds by Peterson. I'm not counting him out. Khan will start fast. From 4 on, it could be Peterson all the way. Actually rooting for LaMont"Big Dummy"Peterson...

You know what. After some guy said Peterson was tailor made for Khan i started analyzing and you know what. I say BS. If anything, Khan is made for Peterson. Khan relies on speed, power and his explosiveness. Those are hia advantages along with his size. He is not a very smart fighter. He jumps in and out and much of the time can be wreckless and off balance. He can not punch going backwards and his inside game is almost non-existant. What is Peterson now? A very technically sound and smart counter puncher. He is aggressive and will back you up. His defense is on point but sometimes he stays in too long and gets caught. He also sets up traps and makes great midfight adjustments. His advantages i.e. timing, defense, and iq can nullify khans advantages i.e. speed and explosiveness. Anyone seeing pac marquez all over again here? I do....

It's official. I'm calling an upset tonight. I'm going out on a limb here and picking Peterson by SD. I think with all this Mayweather talk Khan has been spewing, it's getting to people's heads. Khan is the obvious pick but the recipe for an upset is there. Lamont not only has the skills to win, but he is in amazing mental and physical conditioning, fighting for his 2nd chance at a world title and it's going down in his backyard. That is dangerous. Peterson by SD, book it!

It's interesting. This is going to look a lot like Pacquiao Marquez. Interesting fact also is that Marquez is one of Lamont's favorite fighters. Just saw that in an interview of Peterson

With regards to Khan,

The Maidana-Khan fight was classic stuff! And THAT is a fight where I thought Maidana won and Khan should rematch him! And Peterson throws a lot of leather, but he has been hit himself. IMO, I think there are many fighters more boring than Khan and Peterson.

However, I agree that both of them could go into a dance if they get hurt making for a boring fight, so that could happen. I think this is a good 50/50 match.

Judging/officiating may favor Peterson though. We have a home court advantage. Judges are from Puerto Rico. (Vasquez), Philadelphia (Hill) and Washington DC( Dorsett) No UK judges. The ref Joe Cooper, is from DC as well.

The big question is what happens when one hits the other? If they can both take each others punches and last, this could be a war. If one gets hit and goes into dance mode, this could be a tactical cat and mouse game. Both are chinny, but I think have good hearts going in.

It sure sounds like Peterson got the officials he wanted! Or Khan didn't get what he wanted, or Khan did not protest to anybody.

Im more concerned about Peterson in this situation. If he lets Khan pitty-pat him to death, then we may be disappointed this evening. Im wondering whether or not he will be able to even land on Khan, since he's a safety first type fighter...which means that he may be covering up the whole night.

***Stinker of the night: The replay of Cotto/Margarito II...I would much rather see this last (with the extra footage, of course). It wouldn't have been a problem if we didn't have to sit through a HW co-feature. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/lazy2.gif)
