IBF: Golden Boy Withdrew Appeal of Khan-Peterson Bout
The IBF has informed BoxingScene.com that at 4:50PM EST, Golden Boy Promotions withdrew their appeal for an immediate rematch between junior welterweights Amir Khan and Lamont Peterson. The hearing between Khan and Peterson was scheduled for Wednesday. Team Khan, along with Golden Boy, had appealed the handling of Khan's split decision loss to Peterson, which took place last month in Washington, DC. The WBA recently ordered a Khan-Peterson rematch and Khan/Golden Boy were trying to get the IBF to follow their lead.
Since the controverial December fight, Khan and Golden Boy complained about the scoring of the bout, the two points referee Joe Cooper took away from Khan for excessive pushing and the possible of tampering of a scorecard by Mustafa Ameen, an IBF associate who was sitting at ringside.
