Re: Lamont Peterson signs with Golden Boy
This news has really left a sour taste in my mouth personally. I've never been a big fan of Golden Boy but this really has took the biscuit. Yet again they've shown themselves up as being completely two-faced.
After the Khan-Peterson fight De La Hoya and Schaefer were banging on about how "the man in the hat" cheated Amir and about how Peterson never truly won the fight. They even tried to get the fight result overturned and this was before the drugs scandal. To make it worse, when all the failed drug tests stuff did come out about Peterson they quickly erased the win from records and acted as if he'd never fought Khan at all. Like he didn't exist. Now they go and sign him and starting singing his praises? After spending a so long black-balling him and saying his win wasn't a genuine one? Absolute joke, forget principles, morals and standing by your previous word, the almighty dollar is what's most important.
