Khan: I Would 100% Consider Fighting Peterson Again

AMIR KHAN has shrugged off fears of burnout – ­despite his marathon training camp.

The Bolton light-welterweight has been in training since February and faces American Danny Garcia on July 14 with the WBC and WBA world titles at stake.

He took a brief break after his rematch with Lamont Peterson was scrapped at short notice in May when the American failed a drugs test.

But Khan is confident new conditioning coach Ruben Tabares will get him into perfect shape to face Garcia after his longest-ever training camp.

Khan’s promoters Golden Boy claim they have had verbal confirmation from the WBA that Peterson has been stripped of their world title and the belt will now be up for grabs in Las Vegas.

Khan said: “I’m glad both titles will be on the line. It makes our fight even bigger and exciting.

“I started training for the Peterson fight at the end of February, so it will be a long camp come fight night against Garcia.

“I’ve had an 18 or 19 week training camp, by the time of the fight, but there’s no chance of burnout.

“We do everything right. We have balanced the training quite well and not gone too hard and nor will it be too easy.

“I always have an intense training camp, but it’s a bit different this time because I’ve changed conditioning coach to Ruben Tabares.

“Ruben has worked with David Haye and he is making me work harder. It’s been a new challenge, this training camp, which has kept me fresh.”

If victorious against unbeaten Garcia, Khan will consider a rematch with Peterson – as long as the American is not banned.

He added: “Things happen for a reason and it’s good to know Lamont Peterson was on something in our first fight and then got caught and now admits it.

“But I would, 100%, consider fighting him again. Even when it got called off I wanted to fight him, but then he started to lie and I thought, ‘I don’t have to give this guy a chance’.

“Maybe we could fight again if he is not banned for life, and I hope he does get a ban of some sort.

“I would love to set the record straight against him, after he took away my titles, but I will take one fight at a time and leave it to my promoter to sort out.”

Why are people trying so hard to defend Peterson? Imagine if it was Khan who tested positive?
