MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Former champion Amir Khan (28-3, 19KOs) is looking forward to his next return, which is being penciled in for December 7th in the United States. Golden Boy Promotions is staging an internal junior welterweight tournament. On May 18th, Lucas Matthysse (33-2, 31KOs) will face IBF champion Lamont Peterson (31-1-1, 16KOs). The winner of the match will take on WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia (26-0, 16KOs) on September 7th - and the winner of that match will be positioned to face Khan.

Khan believes Peterson will beat Matthysse, and beat Garcia in September - which is going to set up the long awaited rematch with Khan. Peterson won a controversial split decision over Khan in december of 2011. A rematch was set for May 19th of last year, and later canceled, after Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone.

"I think Peterson will beat Matthysse. I will be at the fight as well because [my younger brother] Haroon is fighting on the [undercard]. And I really believe Peterson will beat Garcia as well [in September]," Khan told BoxingScene.com.

Peterson/mattysse is going to be a hard fight

No, Khan hopes Peterson wins the tourney because he knows Matthysse and Garcia would flatten him.

Why is everybody Dick riding Lucas these days. If Lucas can't put Lamont away he will probably lose the decision as has the case been the last couple of fights where it has gone 12. And I don't think Peterson is getting knocked out
