Khan, Schaefer are Waiting on Peterson's Rematch Reply

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer is still waiting to hear back from Lamont Peterson's team, regarding a seven-figure offer to face Amir Khan in a rematch on May 19th in Los Angeles. On December 10th in Washington, DC, Peterson captured the IBF/WBA junior welterweight titles with a twelve round split decision over Khan. Peterson notched two judges in his favor, with scores of 113-112, and the third judge had it for Khan, 115-110.

Schaefer and Khan's team are pressing for a rematch with the sanctioning bodies, disputing referee Joe Cooper's point deductions during the contest. Cooper took two points from Khan, claiming the boxer was excessively pushing Peterson.

Without the point deductions, Khan would have won a razor close unanimous decision.

While an offer for a rematch is sitting on the table, Schaefer has been advised that Peterson's team is exploring other options.

Schaefer was informed that members of Peterson's team had a meeting last week with Washington city leaders to discuss the possibility of staging another hometown fight.

“Lamont Peterson is going to have to go to his team and tell them to do the right thing,” Schaefer said.

Khan, you lost brah, move on. You weren't pushing so hard for a rematch when Maidana and Prescott were concerned.

What was Golden Boy thinking having the fight in DC and not securing a rematch clause in the contract oh yeah and how come they didn't sign Peterson to a longer deal?

[QUOTE=davis828;11588430]I don't know... If you really look at that third round, Peterson went in after being knocked down. Granted, Hunter and Pete sounded like extreme excuse machines as of late for why they lost that fight, but I genuinely think…
