Bad news for boxing fans and you have to feel sorry for Khan.

I heard his next fight will be in early July- I'm hoping it's Khan-Alexander at WW

definitely cheaterson.

For once I will speak up in favour of Khan. Looks very very dodgy for Peterson, and the way things have transpired i would say he was almost certainly doping in the first fight. If its found he was, I think a minimum of a 3 year ban should be in place and the fight changed to a NC

Ideally, a lifetime ban.

But probably a year.

Last October/November Khan was telling the press Peterson was a routine defence and he was eyeing the big money fights at 147... fast forward half a year and post fight we've had dodgy referee decisions, "hat man" and now Peterson on the power pellets pre fight.

I feel sorry for Khan, he hasn't had a fight in recent memory that hasn't had some sort of controversy from the McCloskey shambles (no fault of Khan's) to Zab Judah faking low blows and now this

Khan on Peterson today:

Quote:
Khan said he was stunned by Peterson's strength. "He could have destroyed my career. If I wasn't fit and strong and had the boxing skills… I might never have been the same again. It was back and forth, we were both hitting other so hard, even though I wasn't hurt.

"He was so strong. Now we know why. I've seen him fight numerous times but when I was hitting him, he just wasn't going back. [Marcos] Maidana, I hit him and he went back, Zab Judah too. I hit hard for a light-welterweight. After the first round, when he was down twice, I thought, 'Not many fighters would get up from that.' But he recovered so quickly.

"In the ninth round he got caught with another good shot, then I hit him with another good combination and I just couldn't finish him. If he wasn't on anything I think I would have knocked him out in that fight.

"In rounds 10 and 11, he was running from one corner to the other corner, because I was moving away from him – and that's what testosterone does to you. It gives you that fire. Previous fights, he's never fought like that.

Khan did say he was surpised how heavy Peterson came into the ring. All his sparring partners were light middleweights for the rematch

He's being a bit of a **** as usual but he is probably right, and to be honest when someone endangers your life and tries to cheat you out of your titles (and did it seems); you're allowed to talk as much **** about them as you like.

On Sky Sports News Khan said Garcia,Maidana or Judah seem to be the only options for his June/July fight but will have a meeting with GB in the next few days.


I would like the Garcia fight but i don't think it gets made.
