KHAN-PETERSON FIGHT RECAP

It’s a candidate for fight of the year, one that will certainly be upset of the year. Lamont Peterson scored a 12 round split decision over Amir Khan in an all out slugfest. Scores of the bout were 113-112 twice, and 111-114.

Khan knocked Peterson down in the first round, but was deducted a point in the 7th for pushing, and the 12th for hitting on the break, which ultimately cost him the fight. Both fighters gave as much as they took, with the crowd in the Washington DC Convention Center on their feet for the duration of the fight.

Peterson was the aggressor during the bout, and didn’t back down to the speed and power of Khan. With the hometown crowd cheering him on every round, Peterson came into the fight as an 11/1 underdog, and refused to back down, as his hometown fans cheered as loud as they could with every punch landed.

Both fighters were hurt in the fight, but both fighters refused to back down, almost as if they were feeding off the crowds energy. Khan and Peterson put their heart and soul into the 12 rounds and left all they had in the ring, and despite the decision, it’s a fight that will be remembered more for the action, than who won the fight.

Nobody, outside those in his corner, expected Peterson to give the performance he gave, and it left all those in attendance clamoring for a rematch.

With the win, Peterson claims the WBA and IBF 140lb titles, and improves to 30-1-1 (15), while Khan drops to 26-2 (18). (via fightnews)
