Peterson on Khan II: I'll Show That I'm The Better Fighter

WBA/IBF junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson (30-1-1, 15KOs) told Sky Sports' Ringside that he plans prove once and for all who the better fighter really is, when he defends his title against Amir Khan (26-2, 18KOs) at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas on May 19.

The is past December in Washington, D.C., Peterson won a controversial twelve round split decision to unseat Khan for his two title belts. There were complaints afterwards, with Khan getting upset with the officiating - because the referee penalized the British star for repeated pushing.

"It was a great feeling - to finally do something that you've been trying to do for 17 years. It was a long road and just at that moment you just feel like all the hard work paid off. I was the one in there actually getting pushed so I know better than anyone that they should have took points from him. For me, they should have DQ'd him," Peterson said.

"I'll make people see that I am the better fighter. In my mind I know; I knew before we went into the first fight. I confirmed it after the first fight and I think going into the second fight we will really, really show people I'm the better fighter."

Without the fake knock downs Khan wouldn't have won on any card, plus the constant holding and pushing to survive. Peterson also had a brilliant amateur career. Should be good fight!! Peterson is out now, no more behind the scenes!!
