    It's not that! It's the ****ing Royal Wedding.

    They said it themselves. The PPV is not hard to shift.

    So why are Sky keeping a date for him in April when Khan hasn't even got an opponent or venue in place yet?:lol:

    The opponent is Lamont Peterson, and the venue is either the O2 or the MEN.

    Surely Lamont Peterson will get even less buys than the Salita and Kotelnik fights.

    I'm not paying for this. I'll catch it on Youtube the next day. Why Peterson? What has he done? Lost clearly to Bradley and get extremely fortunate to pick up a draw in the Ortiz fight, why couldnt he have just gotten a more proven fighter? Either Khan wins every round for a decision or wins every round and stops him at some point.

    Nobody has ever heard of him, and Khan never gets big ppv numbers.

    I agree with you Lazarus that it wont be John Murray but id be very much surprised if Murray doesnt fight on the undercard against a decent name from America, especially if the fights in Manchester. Has to be Lamont Peteresen, too much time has passed since his loss to Prescott and if he fought Ortiz it wud only be in America and not the UK.

    LOL. Khan is only gonna damage what little muslim fans he has left with this farce of a fight. After getting booed out of the arena against Prescott, Salita this fight will be even worse and Khan will just run and run then gas in the 9th as usual. No wonder he cant sell **** at here or in the states good luck with this one sky!

    He's bigger than Salita and Kotelnik. Them two are people that we had NEVER heard of. Peterson is at least known among Hardcore Boxing fans.

    Khan's stock is rising with every fight.

    Yep. It's most definitely Lamont.

    It's a 'stay busy' fight JP. If you haven't already, I'd reccomend you watch Peterson-Bradley. Peterson lost but not one round did he give up and try to knock out Bradley. It was a great fight.

    Farce? Are you an idiot? Fighting the #1 ranked guy by the WBA, the man who was competitive throughout against Bradley and drew against Ortiz is a farce?

    You're a moronic, racist, skinny, 16 year old child who's been brutally exposed on ESB.

    What was the name again? Chris was it?

    Kotelnik was bigger than Peterson. He was a world champion who had already fought against Rees and Witter. Saying that, your second point is much more important than the opponent. :good
