Peterson edged Khan, 113-112 on the cards of judges George Hill of New Jersey and Valerie Dorsett of North Carolina, and losing 115-110 on that of Nelson Vazquez of Puerto Rico.
Golden Boy Promotions had initially requested that Washington D.C.Boxing and Wrestling Commission chairman, Scottie Irving, overturn the result of the win by Peterson (30-1-1, 15 knockouts) over Khan (26-2, 18 KOs) in relation to what Golden Boy Promotions CEO, Richard Schaefer, has alledged are scoring descrepancies and poor officiating.
Khan was deducted one point each during the the seventh and 12th rounds by Virginia's Joe Cooper, who was chosen by the commission from a list of four judges provided by the IBF, according to Tucker and Irving. Khan was penalized for pushing Peterson's head down in the seventh, and for shoving Peterson away in the 12th.
Tucker and IBF president Darryl Peoples responded to Khan's formal protest seeking an immediate rematch against Cooper's decision to deduct points.
"We decided not to order an immediate rematch on the basis of the fact that in the rules, if the referee feels that it's a foul, then that's his call to take a point. In that fight, he did warn Khan several times before he actually took the first point," said Tucker.
"At one point, before he took the point, Cooper said, 'this is the final warning.' I believe that that was in sixth round, because he took the point in the seventh round. But before he took the point, he did say 'this is the final warning,' and then, he did take the point."
"This last fight, the guy who lost the fight was the guy who was committing the fouls. Khan was the guy who was holding down the head and using the elbows and doing the pushing."
This is getting more and more hilarious by the day. The IBF used the DVD provided by GBP to condemn Khan's actions and sanction the referee's, during the fight. Classic!!!!!!
There is no way Khan is winning an appeal ....
If anything he has made his position more precarious by crying and whining that he was robbed constantly. And in the process, he has insulted Wash.D.C., the IBF and its referee, Lamont Peterson and his team, and the list is increasing by the day. Everyone is at fault BUT Khan -- the delusion displayed by Khan is on an astronomical level, rarely seen.
Khan has no grasp of reality or his surroundings. And he has now removed himself from any possibility of a rematch in the near future. Peterson's team is going to burn Khan by taking a different opponent, while watching him cry and whine endlessly.
This script could not have been written better, to bring this guy back to planet earth.
