He's a bit flashier than Kotelnik, but not as skilled IMO.

Khan should beat him in good fashion, just stay on him and keep the pressure on.

i dont think its a so called "easy fight" for amir.
but i do think to trouble amir khan you need some decent power, or something to gain his respect. i dont think peterson has that, yeah he can move and he's some skills, but i think amir will eventually catch up with him, break him down and stop him late on.
i think it could be a tricky fight in the early rounds for khan, not easy, but in no way as hard as it was against maidana.

I expected "You're just bigging Khan's opponent up to take it seem like a big win" comments, to be honest. Thanks for the honest posts.

I was actually pretty surprised when people did say he's easy. I've got Amir winning, but as others said, the guy is pretty skillful and very solid.
it is an easy fight ,not a one sided beatdown but khan will outclass him most departments... shame im not paying $15 to watch it!

Yup, everything Petserson does, Amir does better IMO. Peterson is a quick boxer without much power. Khan is quicker, a better boxer, with more power. If Khan struggles with him, a Mayweather fight would be laughable!

Wow, just wow. I like Lamont, been watching him for years but he poses none of the problems Maidana did to Khan. The power, the awkwardness, the looping shots, the chin... I don't think Khan will let Lamont off the hook the way Ortiz did.

If he does, then Peterson has the skills to make Khan look bad, but will lose every round doing so.

He is a legit top 10 light welter fighting in his home town, I dont think that can be classed as easy. This isnt a Salita by any means. That said Khan has the ability to win comfortably rather than easily.

This fight is closer to the McCloskey one than Maidana.
