    Blimey! I can't believe it , but this fight is not PPV on Sky Sports (unless you include the extortionate Sky Sports monthly mugging!).

    I expect Khan to outclass Peterson - who is tough and has only lost 1 from 31 fights, but I don't think he's in Khan's league. I predict Khan to win by knockout in three rounds, he doesn't want to hang around - as Peterson has 15 KOs in his 29 wins!

    Klitschko has pulled out of his fight that was due to be on the same Sky programme.

    Also, Ashley Theophane was supposed to fight Nigel Wright who has pulled out - now Theophane fights Ben Walker. No idea how this will go. Walker's lost 4 from 12 so I expect Theophane will mullah him, but you never know do you?

    A knockout for Kahn would do it, but if he doesn't get knocked out himself he'll win on points - BUT Lamont can bang a bit so he'd better watch out!

    I think Khan currently fights at light-welterweight but is looking to step up to welterweight next year if Bradley, and Morales keep avoiding his offers for fights then he will have to move up a division anyway, although he does want to unify tghis division there is no point in waiting for Morales & Bradley if they are just gonna keep tirning big money offers down. Khan will find fighters who have the courage to fight him if he goes up a weight division and could potentialy bag a fight with Mayweather next year if things go right for him.

    Not possible for a Brit to win on points in the USA , it has to be a knockout , just ask Lennox Lewis .

    Oh I remember Lennox getting robbed that night:

    Wikipedia: The raw statistics of the fight suggested the bout belonged to Lewis, who landed 348 punches compared to Holyfield's 130. Lewis also out-jabbed Holyfield 137 to 52. Judge Eugenia Williams, who scored the fight in Holyfield's favour, said she saw Lewis land fewer punches than Holyfield.

    I know mugging used to be really common in New York, Lennox sure got mugged that night!

    I used to go to a lot of boxing matches when I lived in the smoke, I remember being ringside for Lewis v Mason , fcuk me those guys were GIANTS! Garry sadly passed away this year, a giant of a man inside the ring and a really nice bloke out of the ring, killed in a cycling accident - RIP big man, you could have been a contender without the eye problems. Lewis was never really accepted in the UK IMO - I thought he was a pucker champ, just 2 freak defeats and that silly draw from 44 bouts.

    Waffling again - back to the Kahn fight .... So, you reckon a bet on the draw might be worthwhile or has Eugenia Williams retired from 'judging' ? OH Bugger, now I HAVE to bet on it as I will be grumpy as fcuk if it IS a draw!!!! £5 at 55-1 on Betfair has been invested

    What a fix - even with two points deducted Amir still won by two or three rounds, Peterson came in low every time and the ref did nothing what a total farce ..... boxing has always been a joke and this one was a disgrace .... how can you have a SIX point difference on judges cards, just laughable .....

    Too be honest, what do you expect in D.C?!?!

    Like Amir said, you have to win by a large margin just to win narrowly! But Amir won narrowly, so naturally lost the match.

    Boxing needs to be kept out of some places, and D.C is one of them.

    And let's not forget the knockdown in the first round that the ref missed. Had he seen that it would have been a draw. Poor decision overall, as I thought Khan just edged it. However, Khan should know more than most that US judges go for fighters going forward.

    Sorry to say this but ....... TOLD YOU SO !!!!

    Unfortunately I slept through the whole thing but getting a points decision in favour of a Brit in the US is just never going to happen .

    Khan had 2 points deducted for pushing , although 2 judges gave it to Khan one judge gave it to Peterson by several rounds , just like the Lennox Lewis fight the scorecards took way too long to be added up and when they did it caused controversy

    Khan did not put Peterson away like he should have done .

    All three judges gave the decision to Khan - if you ignored those fcuking ridiculous point deductions. A message to the referee: You can't be blind becase you managed to see Khan's so called transgressions, but somehow you failed to spot Peterson consistently punching Kahn in the gonads (that's not allowed in case you don't know), you also failed to spot Petersons' deliberate use of the head (here's another tip ref - you are supposed to punch with the gloves). I don't know why you did its, perhaps twisted patriotism, perhaps you were paid, maybe your family was being held hostage or you just wanted to be a 'star' - any way you are a fcuking cheat!

    Khan did not put in a great performance, but Peterson did not do enough to take the belts.

    David Cameron - recall the ambassador - phone Bark O'Bummer and tell him to go fcuk himself - Grrrrr, I'm cross!

    I think that Brit fighters should have learned by now that it will always be a hometown decision .

    If a Brit is a world champion NEVER fight over there against an American .

    To be honest I thought that was a fair outcome. I wanted Amir to win, but if it wasn't points deducted for the pushing, it at least should have been for the head pulling down all the time like Lamont said afterwards.

    The scorecards had it more or less even on 2 (Amir would have had both if it wasn't for the points) and then another one clearly in his favour which no one understood what match they were watching... Amir was great first round but then died out and showed short bursts of excellence throughout the fight but got caught so many times.

    Rematch should be good.

    Started watching it at 11pm and was finally relieved when the main fight came on at 4am :/ lol Judging by the 1st round I thought that Khan would take this easily. Peterson put up a fantastic fight but I don't feel he should have won it. What was Khan suppose to do when Lamonth kept bending down and going in with the head? I didn't see much wrong with the pushes let alone being deducted 2 points! :y14: America is not a good hunting ground for Brits is it.

    how many fighters have lost or drawn a fight because of a points decision? to many to count. he lost end of lol. think back to watson eubank, if watson had got the decision that he should of in the first fight then the second might not of happened and he would not be disabled now.

    khan should of finished it when he had the chance but blew it. on another forum i go on people are saying khan would beat mayweather, to me there is more chance of me beating tyson than khan beating mayweather.

    should he have won it? of coarse. should buster douglas of beaten tyson? no but he got a long count and gave tyson a proper kicking. thats boxing tbh

    Do you have the source for that? I know Khan wants the rematch straight away and a rematch is on the cards but I haven't seen a definate date set yet. Should be a lot of good fights in around Feb/March time. The Klitschos are back in action.

    He posted it on his twitter/facebook mate. Apparently he's already spoken to HBO TV company and local casino's. I haven't found anything on skysports though, which is a bit odd.
