Peterson: I Don't Lay Down, I'll Give Khan a Rematch!

Amir Khan went down to a shock points defeat by Lamont Peterson to lose his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in a pulsating fight in Washington DC. Two points deducted from Khan for pushing proved crucial as the judges scored the fight a split decision with cards of 113-112, 113-112, 111-114 in favor of the local fighter. The Briton knocked Peterson down in the first round, but the American launched huge attacks in the third and seventh. Khan recovered, but a docked point in the final round turned out to be fatal.

"I was the big underdog - a lot of people thought Khan was going to win. Early on they were probably saying it again, but I'm not going to lay down for anyone, I'll fight the whole way through. I would definitely give him a rematch - he gave me a chance to fight for a world title, why not? It was a good fight, I'm pretty sure everybody enjoyed it and I don't mind doing it again," Peteron said.

Lamont should treat Khan the way Amir treated Prescott. No rematch....

Im a Khan fan and i think Lamont deserved the win, but i think if this is the only blueprint for Khan then it takes a special kind of warrior to do it. My respect for peterson went up 10…
