Photo: Lamont Peterson Receives His WBA Championship
By Hilmar Rojas
Lamont Peterson received the black and gold title that officially identifies him as the super champion at 140 pounds, under the World Boxing Association. The 28-year-old fighter, with a current record of 30-1-1, with 15 KOs, won the belt on December 10th when he won a split decision over Britain's Amir Khan in Washington DC. Peterson and Khan will have a rematch on the 19th of May at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
Khan hates that kind of pressure and his power wasn't enough to deter Peterson, the blueprint is set. Peterson to win by a clearer margin this time.Comment by chrismoneymay on 02-22-2012
