Amir Khan ready to defend title against Lamont Peterson

Wasif Chudhary

British born light-welterweight Pakistani Amir Khan will face Lamont Peterson for the IBF and WBA light welterweight titles on Saturday night at the Convention Center in Washington D.C. Amir Khan is really confident to defend his title against the Peterson. Khan, the birthday boy is so focused on his clash with Lamont Peterson he forgot an important date – his 25th birthday said that “the home crowd is a lot of pressure,”, said this week of his sixth title defense. “He might crack. I think he’ll fight with his heart and all his dreams will go out the window. “I made the same mistake before.” Khan suffered his only loss when Breidis Prescott knocked him out in 2008 in the first round of their bout in Manchester, England, near Khan’s hometown of Bolton. On the other hand his competitor Peterson, 27, has lost only to unbeaten World Boxing Organization junior-welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, in a December 2009 fight in Rancho Mirage. The fighters weighed in Friday, with Khan weighing 139 pounds to Peterson’s 140.
Number of games played, won and lost by both of these boxers
Amir Khan (26-1, 18 knockouts)
Lamont (29-1-1, 15 knockouts
This suggests the high rank of both of these players...
