Khan: If The Appeal is Won, Peterson II in April or May

By Pawel Pronishev

Amir Khan's appeal to get a rematch with Lamont Peterson will be heard by the IBF in January. On December 10th, Peterson won a twelve round split decision over Khan to capture the WBA/IBF titles. Khan and his team are appealing the two point deductions by referee Joe Cooper, who felt the British star was doing too much pushing.

The loss of those points would cost Khan the fight, as Peterson was given the win on two of the official cards with an identical score of 113-112, while the third judge had Khan well ahead with a score of 115-110.

If Khan wins the appeal, he wants to have the rematch in April or May.

“If the appeal is upheld for the rematch, I will be ready to fight against Lamont Peterson in April or May at Las Vegas or Los Angeles. A neutral venue is a must, [because] when you fight an opponent [in his backyard], the the local crowd, referees and everyone are all against you," Khan told The Nation paper of Pakistan.

[QUOTE=gnote650;11609706]I watch the fight again the other day and he warn Khan at least 7 times before he took the point away and he warned him right before he took the point away. He told him "stop pushing last warning"…
