Looks like this is what is going down.
That's one fight I won't be parting £15 for.
Peterson was totally outclassed by Bradley and extremely lucky to get a draw against Ortiz. Sounds about right for a ''come back home'' fight. Save the good stuff for across the Atlantic, eh Khan? And on the way get in the way of a HW megafight too.
The audacity of that young man!
I'm not sure if Khan has KO power, but the body shot he put on MM was vicious. What I do know is, if he gets hits flush, his gameplan changes.
It's not a PPV fight but interesting to see what each of them bring to the fight.
So this is the "great" matchup that held up the most important HW fight in a decade?
Decent stay busy fight, but not a huge fight for him to bring home to his adoring british public..... I'd rather watch Khan Maidana II at the MEN.....
I just get this felling that if Judah beats Mabuza that we'll be seeing Judah vs Khan after Peterson too and not vs the Bradley/Alexander winner. Something tells me I might be right for once.

This has been mentioned so many times now by Golden Boy and Khan that I'll be stunned if this doesn't get made. Like others have said though I can't get my head around this holding up a Wlad vs. Haye fight. Still, I guess Khan has the same date reserved with HBO and Sky probably didn't want to piss Khan off for future business so I guess I see Sky's perspective. Like Mac said though, If Judah wins the IBF, I wouldn't be stunned if he was next and not the Bradley/Alexander winner.
Dont blame Khan for taking an easy fight as long as he is willing to take on the big names as well.
I just hope SKY tv dont insult our inteligence and try and pass this off as some type of mega fight.
But then again anything can happen i boxing and if Khan is caught right I still feel he will go!
So it makes sense for Khan to beat Peterson and then cash in against Judah. I mean he's already beaten Kotelnik, Malignaggi and Maidana so he doesn't have loads of options unless he rematches either Prescott or Maidana.
Khan has the tv date with Sky and HBO. Changing to a different date which suits both networks aswell as suiting Khan and his opponent (Peterson in this case) is difficult.
Haye and Wladimir have supposedly been fighting each other for 18 months. I don't blame Sky for not messing Khan about to put on a fight which may or may not end up taking place.
And also, in the long run it makes better financial sense for Sky.
Think about it - Haye - Klitschko PPV
Chisora - Klitschko PPV
Haye - TBA PPV
Haye - Klitschko PPV
I know which option i'd go for if i was top brass at Sky. And it would be option that doesn't piss their only other PPV star off.
If not Pacman, Judah vs JMM is going down.

It's a good stay busy fight. Peterson hung in there versus Ortiz and looked good in spots. Khan should beat him easily, but there aren't many out there Khan won't beat easily. Why not Ortiz? GB not ready to put him in that tough yet?
If Khan vs Peterson is PPV, Chisora vs Wlad won't be.
