PETERSON TAKES KHAN'S TITLE

 

Peterson takes Khan's titles in controversial decision

WASHINGTON, DC - A pair of point deductions ultimately cost Amir Khan his WBA and IBF light welterweight titles, as Lamont Peterson overcame a first-round knockdown to score a split decision win Saturday night.

Referee Joe Cooper chopped a point off Khan's scorecard in both the seventh and 12th rounds because of excessive pushing. Khan fended off Peterson in the seventh, but was charged with a penalty after extending his forearms and moving the Washington, DC native back. It happened again in the final round, this one less obvious.

Peterson (30-1-1, 15 KOs) won 113-112 on two scorecards, while the other judge had it 115-110 in favor of Khan (26-2, 18 KOs).

After the fight, Khan, who was making the sixth defense of his WBA title, seemed to blame Cooper for the loss. Peterson offered a rematch.

Khan, who has fought outside his home country of England in four of his last five bouts, was given credit for one knockdown in the first round, although Peterson went down twice. The first time Peterson hit the canvas, his feet got tangled up with Cooper and it was ruled a slip. Then, with less than 30 seconds left in the round, Khan pelted his opponent with a right to the face, and Peterson tripped over Khan's feet to the ground.

Peterson, though, rallied with some nice shots and stunned Khan with a solid right two rounds later. Khan was retreating in that third round, and the two continued to trade barbs amidst the controversial calls from Cooper in rounds seven and 12.

Khan turns focus to Peterson rematch

Amir Khan has put any plans to step up to welterweight on ice and has switched his attentions to a rematch with Lamont Peterson.

Khan suffered a shock defeat at the hands of home favourite Peterson in Washington DC on Saturday night, losing his WBA and IBF lightwelterweight titles in the process.

The Bolton boxer felt the referee made some poor decisions, with Khan deducted two points for pushing.

The 25-year-old had been eager to step up to welterweight and take on Floyd Mayweather Jr but those plans are now on hold as he is keen to avenge his defeat to Peterson.

"We want a rematch, maybe in Las Vegas on 31 March," Khan's father, Shah, told BBC's Sportsweek.

Khan's team have also announced they will formally question the performance of referee Joseph Cooper as well as the scoring of the three judges. The fight was scored 113-112, 113-112, 111-114 in Peterson's favour.

Peterson, who impressed greatly in his victory as he acted as the aggressor throughout much of the contest, has no qualms over a rematch and is willing to give Khan the chance to reclaim his titles.

"He gave me a shot at his titles in the first place so I will give him a rematch, no problem," the American said after his victory.

"I came into this fight as the underdog with most people giving me no chance of winning.

"But I followed my game plan and I didn't get worried when I got knocked down in the first round."

Khan on wrong side of split-decision

Boxing : Amir Khan's dreams of global superstardom were spectacularly derailed in Washington as local hero Lamont Peterson relieved him of his WBA and IBF titles in a split-decision on Saturday night.

The Englishman had Peterson down twice in a brilliant first round but then faced perilous onslaughts in the third and seventh while also twice being harshly docked points.

Those deductions made all the difference, as Peterson snatched victory on two cards by just a point to leave Khan surely hoping for a rematch and chance to put things right.

Khan came into the bout talking of moving up to welterweight and pursue glory in that division. The pre-fight buzz had centred on his long-term future rather than the more immediate proposition of dangerous challenger Peterson.

While Khan came into the ring boasting a record of 26-1 with 18 stoppages, Peterson (29-1-1, 15KO wins) also had just the solitary defeat, which came against WBO champion Timothy Bradley in 2009.

Yet Khan was the overwhelming favourite despite being on away turf and his introduction was met with a hostile response from a pro-Peterson crowd, albeit peppered with his own followers.

A superb opening round saw Peterson down twice. First, the Englishman landed a right hand and glancing left hook which sent the American down only for referee Joseph Cooper to seemingly rule it a slip.

The count was administered moments later, however, as another combination culminating in a sharp left sent the American onto the floor in the same corner.

Peterson showed more in the second, holding ring centre but seeing Khan land the more eye-catching shots.

Khan survived a nightmare third round in which he took a right hand to the head and left to the body which left him on wobbly legs for the remainder of the session.

He had to run for much of the round as Peterson stalked him and repeatedly landed power shots to head and body, one of which - a right near the ear - very nearly sent Khan tumbling.

Undaunted, Khan was prepared to trade with Peterson in the fourth, piling in with a right hand the challenger did well to shake off but struggling to utilise his speed.

Khan went down under pressure in the fifth but clearly had just lost his footing and he clearly won the round to maintain a slender lead.

Both men landed body shots but Khan, having boxed beautifully for moments in the sixth, allowed himself to be hit before landing a superb double left-right which had his own fans off their seats.

Khan seemed wobbled by a right hand and left hook and clinched before firing back quickly.

A frantic seventh saw Khan rocked again as he had to hold on after being caught with rights and left hooks on the ropes, with Khan wheeling away on unsteady legs in a bid to survive.

Khan - who goaded Peterson in an act of machismo - was then docked a point at the round's conclusion for apparent pushing.

Peterson dug in two hurtful lefts to Khan's ribs and followed with a left hook to the head in a neutral corner as the Briton looked ever closer to letting his titles slip away.

Early in the ninth Khan was caught badly again but rallied to launch a spirited attack of his own. Both men's faces were marked up as the tempo ebbed and flowed.

Khan then landed a left-right double which left Peterson out on his feet only to shake it off well. Khan dug in a right to the body and a long left hurt Peterson again.

Still Peterson marched forwards and Khan took a winging right hand to the head as the session ended.

Khan's fancy footwork was not stopping Peterson landing blows, though it was the champion who just edged the 11th.

Khan was very harshly docked another point for pushing in the final round as both men looked to snatch victory and after the fighters embraced at the final bell, it was Peterson who took the shock split decision win with scores of 113-112 twice in his favour with Khan being handed 114-111 by the third judge.

Peterson takes WBA and IBF titles with win over Khan

WASHINGTON -- Hometown favourite Lamont Peterson clearly thought he won the fight. Dethroned champion Amir Khan felt he had been cheated.

Peterson, helped by referee Joe Cooper deducting two points from Khan for pushing in the seventh and 12th rounds, scored the split-decision to win the WBA and IBF junior welterweight titles on Saturday night.

Judges George Hall and Valerie Dorsett scored the fight 113-112 in favour of Peterson. Nelson Vasquez had Khan winning 115-110.

"It must have been a good fight. They're already talking about a rematch," Peterson said.

Khan, who was favoured to win in his sixth title defence, started out strongly, scoring the only knockdown in the fight late in the first round. In fact, Khan, who complained that Cooper was favouring Peterson, thought he had knocked Peterson down a second time. It was ruled a slip.

"It was like I was against him and the referee," Khan said.

Peterson began his counterattack in the third round -- taking the fight to Khan -- and hitting him with a series of blows to the head, buckling his knee.

The challenger secured the fight by winning the 10th and 11th rounds on Hill and Dorsett's scorecards. The 12th was ruled even after the point was deducted from Khan.

"I was shocked. There was no warning," Khan said about the 12th round point deduction.

"I'm a fighter -- not a referee," Peterson said when asked his opinion on Khan's penalty. "It's always going to be rough at this level," Peterson said. "I'm always prepared for a backyard fight."

In a bizarre post-fight press conference, fans of both fighters crowded the room, repeatedly cheered and had to be admonished by officials from the promoters.

Oscar De La Hoya, whose Golden Boy Promotions put on the fight, started campaigning for another bout even before both fighters spoke.

"There will be a rematch," De La Hoya predicted.

Spurred on by a crowd just short of a sellout in the first championship fight held in Washington since 1993, Peterson improved to 30-1-1. Khan is 26-2.

"We all know who won the fight," Khan said.

Earlier, heavyweight Seth Mitchell (24-0-1, 18 KOs), a former Michigan State linebacker, improved his chance to fight for a heavyweight title with a second-round TKO of Timur Ibragimov (30-4-1, 16 KOs).
