Peterson: The Pellets Didn't Help Me Beat Amir Khan!
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Junior welterweight champion Lamont Peterson is refusing to bow to calls from Amir Khan to surrender his IBF and WBA titles.

The American was due to meet Khan on May 19 in a rematch of their light-welterweight clash, which Peterson won by controversial circumstances in December.

However, Peterson failed a drugs test after testing positive for a synthetic testosterone, forcing the Las Vegas meeting to be cancelled.

The 28-year-old insists he had a testosterone pellet inserted in his hip for medical reasons and there was no intention to gain an advantage. And he says the doctor never informed him that the procedure would trigger a positive drug test result.

His case will be discussed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission in June and until they publish their findings Peterson says he will not be giving up his titles.

He said: "Let the commission decide, let the sanctioning bodies decide. Until that point I'm still the champ. I've never been a cheat. I don't like it when people cheat. It's just my word but the pellets didn't do anything to help me beat him."

"If the procedure I done is what gave me the dirty urine, then what else can I say? I made a mistake. That's all I can say. apologize for it and try and move on with my career. But I think it's wrong for anyone to call me a cheat."

if the power pellets didn't help him beat Khan, then stop taking them power pellets and let's see how your career goes. And when / if you get a rematch with Khan, don't use the power pellets.

[QUOTE=STREET CLEANER]Peterson doesn't seem to realize that not disclosing the fact that he was on it before all testing makes him look as guilty as sin. No way he forgot to reveal his medical procedure cause it is to intrusive.[/QUOTE] That's where he f@#ked up at. Should have said somet...

Actually, I'm quite upset that nobody has made a gif of Peterson in the Dragonball Z world taking a sensu bean and restoring his power. NSB is slacking

Peterson did use synthetic hormones and that might have given him an edge but Khan tried to push and hold Peterson's head down because he was fearful of losing the fight. That's why the ref took points away. Let's not pretend Khan is the great boxer he keeps telling everyone he is. He's a good...

as a dude from his area, he has really disappointed me. Even if his story of having low testosterone is true, why did he not tell them before testing began? Its so stupid and he has probably cost himself a big time career.
