With regard to the invesigation of the man who was not assigned designated to the fight and any legal actions that may result:

I don't want Peterson to be a victim in this. There is no evidence at this time that he knew what was going on and/or was a party to this action. This is between the IBF, take it up with Daryl Peoples the IBF President and the head of the DC Boxing Commission. It is WRONG for Golden Boy Promotions to try to get a no contest out of this, or for Peterson to lose any belts because of this.

Jack


Agreed.

No one argues that this was not a very close fight. The problem is with the controversy surrounding the fight, the sanctioning bodies should order an immediate rematch in a new venue as soon as possible. Put an disputes to rest. If Lamont Peterson was good enough to beat Khan once, then let him try and do it again, this time leaving no doubt.

Im starting to get this urge to see the rematch. The controversy is making it well worth it. In the same breath, I wish Khan would just move on. Had this fight taken place in the UK and Peterson appeared to get robbed, then no one would want to hear his side of the argument. I found it dumb how Khan suggested that the rematch should be in the UK though laugh.gif

I want Khan to win so he can get into the ring against Floyd later on in 2012 and build another mega event.

Im with you on that...I WANTED Khan to win, but it didn't go as planned. Im sure you guys heard me over and over again, pumping up a Khan/Mayweather fight from an economic standpoint and why it made so much sense.

Im wondering why Khan into Lamont's backyard with no rematch clause, and now he pisses and moans about the results no2.gif Either Khan was very confident, or he overlooked Peterson.

damn that fool overlooked peterson so much he was already counting the money he was going to get from the mayweather fight...

Yep. How blond of Khan, huh? laugh.gif

I personally feel the only reason a khan rematch would be ordered is because of his publicity. Peterson should have a say in choosing his first title defense.

i could understand disappointment if he never does - but khan is not entitled to anything. i thought peterson earned that win and i'd rather see him fight than khan
wolterb
^what i mean is peterson is the more entertaining and tough fighter. its not like hes a misfit for the champion belt

IBF claims that "Mystery Man" does charity work for the organization.

(The sidebars at this site have more information.)

However, the fact remains that he had NO BUSINESS communicating with officials or handling scorecards during the fight.

I think Peterson should give Khan a rematch. Hell that could be an under card for May 5th. What I do not like about Khan is that he is not taking personal responsibility for the way he fought. It sucks because I thought Khan had character.

So the WBA gives the crybaby a rematch. From the looks of it, Lamont has about 10 days to respond to this bullshit no2.gif Khan honestly just needs to move on...his shitty performance along with his crying has exposed him and done him no justice in this situation. Im sure he will be quite roided up for the rematch laugh.gif

I think they did the right thing. NOT because Khan cried about it. But because of the home-town officiating with the two points off, losing his world championship on such a close call, and that unauthorized guy with the hat handling the scorecards. At least you have an unethical situation here. No evidence of corruption. At least not yet. But the fight was good enough to warrant a rematch, so I am cool with it.

Let's see how this plays out in a neutral setting with no evidence of officiating bias. We have the IBF hearing next week. Let them approve a rematch. Somebody needs to win definitively here to settle the score.

Im just baffled at the fact that Khan did himself the injustice of not having a rematch clause with this fight, then he made it a point of not caring about Peterson's hometown edge before the fight. THEN, when shit got all outta wack, he comes back crying for justice. I remember that wack deal that he offered Lamont before he declined it.

He basically said that Lamont would have to fight him in the UK, only get $300k, no UK money...and in the event that Lamont won and became the WBA champ, he would've had to rematch Khan under the same contractual conditions...specifically for the SAME amount of money. Now, Khan caught himself begging for a rematch, which was really karma kicking him in the ass.

I agree, a rematch would be nice since the fight was so close. The events that took place in D.C. could've been avoided by Khan performing better and covering his ass with a rematch clause (since he's the "money man" of the division). Im sure this will be a lesson learned for him though.

My motive here is simply that I want Amir Khan to keep winning and keep raising his profile, simply so he can be a name that the sheep will recognize when they look back on Floyd Mayweather's record and see the guys who he beat during his reign as the best fighter of his generation.

Fight Lamont, beat him convincingly and keep on winning, because there's an inevitable loss that I want you to take down the line.

if khan leaves freddie he might actually have a chance of beating mayweather or atleast does something different from the same gameplan every single time. tall guy like him not being able to utilize a jab is embarrassing

This is how it goes...Khan leaves Roach, and the popularity goes out of the window. A big chunk of his 24/7 material will be gone, and a new trainer wouldn't make it any better...especially if it isn't a known trainer.

As far as him not using his jab properly...that's his fault (in my opinion). He knows how tall he is, and he has a decent reach. All he has to do is open his mouth in camp, hell, Im sure Roach knows how to teach somebody how to use a jab. Now how well he teaches that, who knows.

asking them to discard the amir khan re-match they ordered.

very intersting indeed as whether the WBA say yes or no its wide open to what each fighter does next....

IF the WBA say no to the rematch the you will probably see peterson take on pacquaio or more likely bradley.....khan will probably move up in weight

IF the WBA say yes to the rematch then peterson might still say no...so wo does amir fight for the belt....well by all rights it has to be the regular champion...maidana....that means khan moving up to 147lbs then as he has no interest in fighting maidana again.....peterson will probably still fight pacquaio or bradley
mgrover
they've already said yes haven't they?

This is interesting! I would still like to see a rematch on neutral grounds with unbiased officials.

According to GBP and Team Khan, if Lamont doesn't respond/agree, then they will move forward. Let's see how this plays out...

the hatman now wants to sue khan and roach if they dont apologize lol
Jack 1000
It seems Khan can't let go of this, as Peterson now wants the WBA to overturn the mandated rematch. Khan, will no longer fight for the IBF world title, because he alleges that not all of the IBF officials involved in the fight were going to be present at the appeal hearing to give testimony. More here:

http://www.boxingscene.com/?m=show&opt...le&id=48690

Khan has options. A rematch with Peterson, regardless of what belts would be on the line would still be a good fight. Or even Maidana, whom I believe beat Khan in a nail-biter and thriller of a first fight.

Jack

PS. Note that Michael Welsh is NOT a judge, which was incorrectly reported in this article. He was the WBA Supervisor for the fight.
