I didn't agree with the point deductions, just like I didn't agree with the knockdown. It was a close fight that could of went either way. I felt Khan should of won by one round maybe. I definitely didn't expect them to give it to Peterson. I was like, "They're going to give it to Khan anyways, that's what Boxing is about." And then, "...and New!" I literally jumped out my seat in shock. Man, I feel sorry for Khan, his career will go down hill from here. He has no big payday shot against Floyd Mayweather now, damn dude, shit happens.
I didn't agree with the last point deduction, but the first one was dead obvious. I was wondering how many times the ref was gonna warn Khan for the elbow/forearm/push that he was doing, and I was wondering when Khan was gonna go to plan B.
I had NO IDEA that they were gonna give it to Peterson, and was thinking, C'mon, they wont give it Peterson...besides, who are they pushing to be the next star in boxing, Khan or Peterson?" When the decision was made, I almost dropped my damn drink! At this point, how far will Peterson go with the titles?

Looks like Freddie Roach's fighters are falling apart. First Linares, then Pacquiao (though granted), and now Khan. Things are not looking good for them at all.
Not a good year for "Wild Card Wombats"

I had Khan 7-5 in rounds, but with those points off, would have to watch again. The one point early was marginally OK, because Khan did push off with the elbow. The second was not OK. I was not even sure if the ref took a point in the 12th, or just gave as Kenny Bayless would say, a hard warning.
I thought the KD call was legit.
I definitely have to watch it again. Khan was the "King of all Elbows" last night. Im wondering why they couldn't hire another ref, to begin with. I hate to see refs that I've never seen before. With that fucked up haircut he had, Im positive that I haven't seen him before
He did take a point in the 12th, but I scored the last round even because Peterson didn't do much to hold onto the point advantage.

funny looking at khans face and then looking at petersons face, i think a lot of people here are biased as since in the whole build up everyone was like oh yeah we want peterson to win and he got his gift.
I believe most overlooked Peterson, to be honest.
