Khan could have ran away with it, had he actually had an inside game. But he doesn't, and he didn't.
I don't think any genuine boxing fan could honestly state, that either fighter won that fight convincingly. The fanboy's take on the fight is another story.
And that's what makes for a great fight -- But when the loser cries excessively like Khan is doing in this instance, it really diminishes the fight.
It was a fight that either could have won, but it would seem that only Peterson was ready to accept that reality.
