Peterson-Khan Rematch is Off, Khan Seeking Return Date

by David P. Greisman

The May 19 rematch between Lamont Peterson and Amir Khan is off, according to Golden Boy Promotions.

The promoter, in a news release, said the fight was canceled because of Peterson’s failed drug test and due to the fact that the Nevada State Athletic Commission would not be able to hold a formal hearing on whether to license Peterson until May 15, just four days before the bout was scheduled to take place.

Khan also noted the cancelation in a Twitter posting shortly before 7 p.m. Eastern Time on Wednesday.

Khan also said that he is looking for an opponent to fight on a later date. At first he mentioned June 30, though that date is not certain.

“June 30th is not 100% confirmed,” he tweeted later, “will let you guys know the exact date once I find out.”

This cancellation comes after the news that Peterson had tested positive for synthetic testosterone as part of the VADA drug testing both fighters had signed up for.
