Golden Boy Comments on The Khan IBF Appeal Withdrawal

LOS ANGELES  - Due to the fact that there was only to be partial representation of fight officials who were involved with the December 10, 2011 Amir Khan vs. Lamont Peterson bout at tomorrow's scheduled appeal hearing of the fight's outcome before the International Boxing Federation (IBF), Golden Boy Promotions and Team Khan have decided to withdraw their appeal and focus their full attention on Amir's next fight.
 
Golden Boy Promotions and Team Khan are pleased to have been vindicated by the World Boxing Association's (WBA) recent decision to mandate an immediate rematch and still hope that Mr. Peterson will honor earlier statements in which he asserted that he would be happy to agree to a rematch.  In that vein, Golden Boy Promotions and Team Khan would agree to a 50/50 split of worldwide revenues derived from a rematch (including those derived from the United Kingdom) should Mr. Peterson agree to participate and hope that this will be both financially and professionally satisfying to Mr. Peterson and his team.

[QUOTE=Dirk Diggler UK;11680242]I dont think its like a mandatory. Dont think Khan is the mandatory. If the appeal is unsuccessful, Peterson will get stripped of the WBA belt if he doesnt fight Khan. Peterson has already rejected a $1m offer.…
