Get all the promotion wrok done, tickets sold, and then GBP + HBO are heavily invested in it and maybe forced to pull some strings to make the fight go ahead with Peterson involved.

GBP care about Khan not him, they'd hang him out to dry and get a replacement approved by HBO lined up
GBP would wait until the second test before they pulled it.

Pete was in an "no downside" position. If the second test came back positive, the NSAC was pulling his license anyway. And if he REALLY had a legitimate appeal, he gives himself more time to present it.

I don't see the downside for Team Pete. GBP wanted that fight. Bad. They didn't want to go through some vacated belt nonsense.
