Team Khan: Peterson Rematch, March 31 in Las Vegas

Amir Khan will seek a rematch with Lamont Peterson in March after his shock points defeat in Washington DC. The 25-year-old Briton said he felt like he was "fighting two people" after losing his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles. Two points deducted from Khan by referee Joseph Cooper for pushing proved crucial. The judges scored the fight at 113-112, 113-112, 111-114 in favor of the local fighter, who has already agreed to give Khan a chance to win back the belts.

"We want a rematch, maybe in [Las] Vegas on 31 March," Shah Khan told BBC's Sportsweek.

Khan's team also have announced they will formally question the performance of Cooper as well as the judges' scoring.

In a statement they said: "Following the decision in the fight, Team Khan and Golden Boy Promotions intends to make inquiries with the District of Columbia Boxing and Wrestling Commission, the IBF and the WBA regarding the performance of referee Joseph Cooper and will also be seeking clarification regarding certain ambiguities with respect to the scores of the fight. We look forward to an immediate rematch with Lamont as confirmed by Lamont and his manager/trainer Barry Hunter."

[QUOTE=GOD-FR33;11552888][B][COLOR="Navy"]Good 'ol boxing. Look at KHANS face after the fight and look at PETERSONS face. KHAN won a close fight in the 11th and 12th rounds. They both fought their hearts out but KHAN won the fight with his legs…

[QUOTE=BoxingGenius27;11550989]I was completely confused the judge that had it 114-111 for Khan despite the points that were taken away. I thought that was rather strange.[/QUOTE] Was actually 115-110, it just got read out wrong.

[QUOTE=boogybro;11548881]F-ck fighting Khan next. Go and defend the belts you just earned and maybe look for a rematch bout against Tim Brad and unite the belts. Make Khan earn another shot at those belts and attempt to whoop on him…
