This past Saturday night in Washington, DC, a boxing classic took place in the ring, but there was controversy with the officiating before, and after, the fight was over. Freddie Roach, trainer of Amir Khan, was among the individuals who was informed that his boxer won a twelve round decision over Lamont Peterson. After the fight was over, someone passed over the information to Khan's team - that Amir won a decision. To their surprise, Peterson was announced as the split decision winner with two cards of 113-112 and a third card of 115-110 in favor of Khan.

"[I thought something was wrong,] especially when they took so long to do the scorecards. And then they told that they may have made a mistake and made a change on one of the scorecards. Something is fishy. We did get information that we got it [a decision win] and everyone was happy for a moment, but then the decision came and we didn't get it. And there was a ten minute delay inbetween that," Roach said.

[QUOTE=NEELZ]I don't see why there are people so ready to dismiss fighters as overrated and hypejobs. If anything Petersen was underrated. Khan's a great fighter. Because he has a tough fight with a very qualified opponent doesn't mean he's a hype job. I thought Khan won a close decision....

[QUOTE=Check_hooks]another GBP promotion, another fix was in I don't know which one was worse this one or the first Mares-Agbecko[/QUOTE] So you are saying if Khan had not pushed as much as he did (along with the head holding/pushing down)......they were gonna figure out how to take 2 point...
