Khan Claims To Have The Remedy For Peterson's Strategy

By Edward Chaykovsky

Former champion Amir Khan believes that he has the remedy to counter Lamont Peterson's effective strategy of staying close and fighting on the inside. Speaking to Ringside's Johnny Nelson, Khan explained some of the issues he encountered when Peterson captured the WBA/IBF junior welterweight titles with a twelve round split decision in December. The rematch is scheduled for May 19th at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.

"Lamont Peterson had a game-plan, which was to stay very close to me and stick to me. I couldn't get my punches away. I think he'll do the same thing. He'll probably want to stay in the pocket again, stay very close to me, working the inside for them looping big shots so what we need to do is maybe hit the angles. Maybe there will come times in the fight when we have to fight inside but mainly we want to be on the outside working long," Khan said.

If Peterson has Khan's back against on the wall, the British boxer plans to use uppercuts to counter Peterson's incoming charge.

"We're going to throw] a lot more uppercuts, we're going to work on the inside and also instead of standing there and taking the shots on the side when he throws a hook we're going to go under them shots and maybe work on the side and hit the angles."
