Same Prediction, Different Outcome: Khan To Knock Out Peterson

  • Posted on Tue, May 8th, 2012 by Ja Dawson

Been there, done that. 

Last December, I predicted that Amir Khan (26-2, 18 KO’s) would defeat Lamont Peterson (30-1, 15 KO’s) via late round stoppage.

Because I am sometimes stubborn when it comes to proving myself right and lazy-I really don’t feel like writing an original post on a fight that is a sequel, I’m sticking with my original prediction for this fight.

We all know what happened when Amir Khan faced off with Lamont Peterson late last year. They produced a scintillating fight that could have gone either way on the scorecards.

Fortunately for Peterson, it went his way. Unfortunately for Khan, he lost a narrow decision in his opponent’s backyard.

And therein lies the rub.

I do not want to take anything away from Peterson’s great performance on that fateful night. However, it is obvious that he received (at worst) a biased, hometown decision, but at best, a decision aided by some dubious officiating which cost Khan multiple points on the scorecards.

If (Peterson recently failed a random drug test…stay tuned) this fight takes place next Saturday, I feel that Khan will emerge victorious for the same reasons that I stated in my earlier post.

To quote the late Notorious BIG, "ain’t no more to it!"
