Peterson vs. Khan Rematch Will Take Place May 19th in Vegas
The last fight these two had ended in controversy.
I had Khan winning, but two controversial point deductions for pushing (one in the last round) gave Peterson the fight.
Then there was a mystery man that no one has identified hanging around the judges.
The whole thing was weird and smelled like some home cooking for Peterson (the fight was in DC, Peterson’s home town).
The rematch is taking place in Vegas; hopefully there will be better judges.
Unified junior welterweight titlist Lamont Peterson and former titleholder Amir Khan will meet in a rematch at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on May 19, attorney Jeff Fried, who represents Peterson, told ESPN.com on Thursday.
The rematch will come a little more than five months to the day after their all-action first fight that went down as one of the most controversial fights of 2011.
