Khan Livid: If Peterson Has Balls, Fight Me in England!

WASHINGTON - Britain's Amir Khan, saying he felt a rightful victory was stolen from him on Saturday, vowed to return stronger after a controversial majority decision defeat to American Lamont Peterson.

The 25-year-old English boxer said he was putting his plans to rise into the welterweight ranks on hold for one more fight in order to face Peterson in a rematch that he hopes will be staged in England.

Referee Joe Cooper took points from Khan in the seventh and 12th rounds for shoving hometown hero Peterson and that proved to be the margin of Khan's loss before a sellout crowd of 8647 at the Washington Convention Center.

One judge scored Khan a 115-110 winner while the other two handed Peterson the verdict by 113-112. All three judges scored the last round even, so Khan would have kept his titles by majority draw without the last deduction.

"I was up against the referee and Lamont," Khan said. "The referee was a bit on his side. When you come to his home, you are two points down before the fight starts. I went to his hometown. I beat him. And I didn't get it. "It's boxing. You live another day. A rematch is what I'm looking at. I want it straight away. I want my two titles back. I know I won that fight and I think everybody else knows I won it too."

"I came to his home. Let's see if he's got the same balls as me. I don't think he has. I gave him an opportunity. I think I should get an opportunity back. I can't take anything away from him. He wasn't the ref. He wasn't a judge. He did what he had to do in the fight," Khan said. "I have to go back to the drawing board. Sometimes you get these bad decisions. You come back stronger. I'm strong. I have got a lot left in me.

Khan: "If Peterson has balls, fight me in England!" Translation: If Peterson has balls, fight me in my mother's basement.

NO NEED For A Rematch; Get It Right The First Time!

I'm tired of these rubes that want to do all this talking, all these accusations made, "I'm gonna do this, I'll take him out, I'll do this and that"... Fight night comes around, they don't show up, they get drummed, then cry foul, and demand a rematch? What the hell! Get it right the first time...

If Khan had balls he would have rematched Prescott after he got KTFO!!!! Instead he's been fighting has-beens and journey-men. Peterson was cherry picked and he hurt and made Khan run all night. Khan was exposed, he needs to stop calling Mayweather out, Floyd will KO Khan early, the dudes a bum!!!
