Amir Khan should have the WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles given back to him - and his December fight with Lamont Peterson should be declared a no contest. It's that simple.

That's what has happened in the past when fighters have failed a drug test, as Peterson did earlier this year. Peterson has admitted using illegal testosterone pellets before facing Khan, so he was a drug cheat at that point.

That being so, I can't see how Khan getting his belts back is even up for debate.

I expect Peterson is going to say to the Nevada State Athletic Commission that he didn't know the testosterone pellets were banned; ie. the same excuse people have been trotting out since the 1970s. It can never be proved whether he's lying or not - but the bottom line is that, as an athlete, he is responsible for watching what enters his body.

One of the men around him - and we saw lots of them in the ring celebrating when he beat Khan - needed to step back and say, 'Are these pellets legal or illegal?' Ultimately, they were illegal - and Peterson should have known that.

According to Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions (which works with Khan), Team Peterson and the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) knew on April 13 that Peterson had failed a drug test - and no-one made Golden Boy aware until May 7.

Somebody from Team Peterson should have called Golden Boy sooner - however, it appears that Golden Boy is marginally at fault because it failed to return a piece of paper to VADA which would have allowed it to know the drug results.

VADA works exclusively in the world of boxing and mixed martial arts, and I feel it should have 'leaked' the information to Golden Boy, because the livelihoods of hundreds of people were at stake, not to mention the fans - and not just British fans; it's as tricky to get from Florida to Las Vegas as it is from Bolton to Las Vegas.

People should have been talking off the record to resolve the situation. A lot of conversations could have taken place in that April 13-May 7 period.

We know Peterson has used an illegal substance, so I can't see how he doesn't get suspended for a period: six months, maybe a year. After that, he can come back and have a grudge rematch with Khan.

The PTI take on Khan v Peterson

This whole saga is bad timing for Khan, who we're told wants to fight in July - and that's going to be a bit of a squeeze for trainer Freddie Roach, who has Manny Pacquiao's June 9 fight with Timothy Bradley on his agenda.

But bizarrely, the Peterson revelations could lead to a bout between Khan and Floyd Mayweather Jr later this year, which I believe would be premature.

I feel that should be a May 2013 fight, and I say that because the longer Khan leaves it before getting in the ring with Mayweather, the better chance he has of winning. Mayweather, as brilliant as he is (and his status as a great boxer is assured), has slowed down - so another year is only going to make him even slower.

But first Khan is expected to meet Danny Garcia, the undefeated WBC light-welterweight champion, in his next contest. While I don't think Garcia is a more dangerous opponent than Peterson, it's a good fight and one I'd like to see.

However, I get the feeling Garcia and his team would demand an awful lot of money, and I can just imagine that sum exceeding the public demand for the contest. If so, there's plenty of other fights floating around: don't rule out a catchweight scrap against someone like Paulie Malignaggi, who is now a world champion again.

That said, there isn't much time to build a July fight, especially if it's a unification one with Garcia. Having three titles would be a great way for Khan to leave the light-welterweight division - and I know he would want that.

But what you want and get in boxing are two very different things.

***ton shock?
Thankfully after the testosterone pellets, metal barriers, involvement of Luxembourg royalty, and the chaos of boxing's bad, bad days over the last week, you get a real fight this weekend when David Price goes for the British heavyweight title against Sam ***ton.

I've never seen such biased media coverage of any British vacant-title fight. It's like ***ton doesn't even exist, and that's going to be brilliant motivation for the Norwich boxer, who is a big old lump and has been in with some decent guys: Dereck Chisora and Martin Rogan, to name two.

Price is being set up to rule the world - but he's got to get rid of ***ton first.

Chisora and Fury, according to Price and his people, are easy fights. No-one's mentioned ***ton. I'm telling you, ***ton has the ability to make it very awkward and difficult for David Price on the night.

Have to agree.

Meh. Nobody at 140 will really trouble Khan and he is expected to fight @ 140 next. so it's not a worry that he won't have all the 'attention' on him

He won't need to be 100 percent for whoever he goes up against

He can merely outwork Marquez and flury him
Khan could do Garcia over while drunk
Maidana well.. that's conditioning & Maidana has looked shoddy in his latest fights


Everything has been bad timing for Khan... that's just boxing. People suck melons


Bradley ducked
Peterson drugged

6 months+ of his career wasted.

Imagine if he had everything his own way? Khan isn't really a big guy for 147... when he moves up to that weight he will probaly weight 150-151 on fight night. With the delays he will not have the luxury of wasting time fighting nobodies at that weight getting a feeler. He should just jump in at the deep end (Not mayweather -.-)

I think Brook is the biggest challenge he could take for his first 147 fight.

khan v garcia would be fantastic.
Also against marquez would be a tough fight for Amir, i may favour Juan to pull off a win. Amir has the quick flurries but no constructive plan or idea to move around that ring.

I hope the khan/garcia gets made in July!

I think Marquez is done. He will only ever train to the limit for Pacquiao

Khan hasn't got any mental blocks and worries like Pac when fighting Juan

I'm a big Quez fan but Khan takes him slowly over 12 rounds. He would look slow and old. Maybe winning a round or two towards the end while Amir is bieng defensive and maybe a few rounds from nice timing counters

Brook fights on a domestic level whereas, Khan challenges himself with world class quality opponents. Khan V Brook will never happen if Eddie is Brook's promoter. Just read what Team Maidana had to say about Brook and Eddie...

Whoever Khan is gonna fight next he will have to dominate and outshine.
Most likely Peterson fight will be called a NC. Khan will fight for vacant belts.
Khan needs to change his style abit... be flat footed, use lateral movements etc. I would like to see some pocket work from him. Bodyshot's. Uppercuts. Hooks. All good.

I think his normal style is fine
He just needs to remove bad habits

bouncing around too much
defence balling
taking uppercuts on the ropes

also take what he's learnt from the Peterson fight and use it for when he next goes up against a slugger/ tough guys who can try to overpower Khan

His style is like an amateur fighter. If he was more methodological and or smart he would go far. When he lay's on the ropes he has a passive defence. Someone like Timid Timmy is very good at backing people up. People complain about his head but he has excellent footwork and inside fighting ability.

1 minute and 10 seconds into the 4th round the ref had already warned Khan twice for not pushing. So the how come everyone was in a uproar about the ref taking points for pushing, they warnings were there.

And 1 minute 12 seconds into round 6 the ref stops the action and warns Khan a third time not to push. That's 3 warnings so far, not even half way through the fight. I don't understand why there was such a big deal made about the point deductions Khan was given plenty of warnings just through 5 1/3 rounds alone.

Your signature is the first time I've ever seen Tommy Riley's cornerman Noah's quote from the movie Gladiator (1992) used anywhere since 1992.
