Khan vs Peterson - THE REMATCH 2012 (Promo)
Amir Khan gets the chance to avenge his loss to Lamont Peterson on May 19th. Their first fight was a controversial one. Peterson beat Khan on points to lift the WBA and IBF titles in Washington on Dec. 10, but Khan complained about being deducted two points, the judges' scoring overall, and the ringside presence of IBF volunteer Mustafa Ameen, who was seen on video distracting judges and leaning across WBA supervisor Michael Welsh during the fight.
The WBA ordered a rematch last month. Khan withdrew from an IBF appeal hearing.
Khan tweeted: "Big announcement. KHAN. Vs PETERSON May 19th, Mandalay Bay Hotel Vegas. At last I git the fight I deserve, Big ..."
Golden Boy chief executive Richard Schaefer told Sky Sports he was confident the Las Vegas commission would make sure security was tight and everything was neutral for both fighters.
"The first fight was a terrific fight, an all-action fight, a lot of controversy, a lot of questions surrounding it so this one here is hopefully going to clear up all these question marks," Schaefer said.
