Added a poll and pinning this up as a preview thread! Vote and comment!



I must be honest, I almost didn't give Peterson a chance after the fight was announced this summer, but Im sure his motivation is through the roof at this point. He's fighting in his hometown, and it appears that he's been severely overlooked, which is a MAJOR motivational factor. I mean damn, Khan is babbling about who's he wants next, and the winner of whoever, blah, blah, blah. Peterson could very well be the guy to fuck up Khan's little plans in his hello kitty planner.

Peterson really has nothing to lose, and most viewers (the unqualified ones), are already giving the fight to Khan. After I saw what I saw on Saturday night (JMM/Pac), anything is possible. Im looking at how Peterson withstood Ortiz's shit, and fought all the way back to a draw. His power isn't the topic of discussion, which is probably why people wont give him a chance. My point is, as long as he has 1 or more KO wins on his record, then he's very much capable of producing one. Hell, Malignaggi almost knocked Diaz out in their rematch, and we all know Paulie punching power is as soft as a baby's butt.

The thing is, Peterson needs to find a way to cut the ring off, so Khan wont have the opportunity to circle him...like he always does his opponents. Head movement is also a big key factor for Peterson, because we all know Khan throws 3-4 punches at once, then moves out. No one can question Peterson's technique, but he has to either be quick or find a way to turn Khan in order to neutralize his offense, and execute his shit as quick and precisely as possible. Peterson's biggest mistake would be to stand there in all hopes of trading with Khan, and end up with a busted up face and low punch output...or possibly finishing the fight on his back.

Oh yeah...I hate Anthony Peterson! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

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)

Peterson is in his own backyard plus a DC former featherweight champ just was elected to the boxing HOF. He has to show out or else he is going to take the air out of DC boxing as a fighting city. I will be staying home tonight to watch this fight (I have a cold) so I am hoping that Khan and Peterson put a good show. Peterson has to come out firing. Khan is trying to end the fight early but I am hoping it goes the distance. I want to see Peterson grow in the ring and adjust. I have a feeling Khan only has a Plan A, so we will see if Ariza and Roach can adjust to the fight as well, do you think Floyd will be in the crowd? lol j/k
