The referee was pathetic all the way through the fight,Khan was docked two points for pushing his opponent away which happens in almost every fight....yes he was warned but how on earth is he supposed to react when his opponent comes in head first?

Khan needs the space to get his fast combinations to work but Peterson was constantly coming forward leaning in with his head,it's funny how the ref warned Khan for pushing but never once took any points from Peterson for leaning in with his head even though he warned him a few times..

Where was the fight held....Washington DC

Where is Peterson from - Washington DC

Enough said really on that one..

There is also some controversy surrounding the judges scorecards,before the results were announced it looked as if Khan's corner were told of the results in Khan's favour,this then filtered through to Peterson's corner and you could see Peterson's head drop....suddenly then Peterson had won so something doesn't sound right there..


At the end of the day Khan should be beating fighters like this with his eyes closed but being cocky he thought he'd won before he even stepped into the ring..

The rematch will happen early in 2012 and Khan will destroy him then move on,this result won't derail Khan and he will still go on to bigger things.

I completely disagree with you, Gaz.

Khan was constantly pushing Peterson back with his forearms and elbows - and it wasn't because Peterson was using his head like a "Holyfield" battering ram. It was simply because Khan cannot fight on the "inside".

Khan has an excellent, lightning fast jab, and because of this, he loves to fight his opponents at distance. The problem Khan found is that his punches were not hurting the American, so Peterson walked through Khan's punches and destroyed him up close. He walked him down.

The point deductions were controversial, but when you're constantly warned about pushing, then you're at the referee's mercy. This happened in the very first minute of the fight:

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

Still in the first round, this was when Khan had knocked Peterson down the first time - you can see that Khan didn't catch him with his fist, rather his forearm and used it to push him down:

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

Now, you and everyone else is banging on about how this referee was so biased, yet you all overlook the fact that he awarded Khan a knockdown on Peterson in the 1st round, when in actual fact Khan pushed him down with his elbow!

(!empty($user->lang['IMAGE'])) ? $user->lang['IMAGE'] : ucwords(strtolower(str_replace('_', ' ', 'IMAGE')))

That's three occasions on which Khan had used his elbows and forearms to drive Peterson away - in this was just in the 1st round! Khan complained afterwards that Peterson was keeping his head low - so what? Peterson never drove his head into Khan and this is the point. Anway, if Khan had a problem with Peterson's style, why didn't he complain DURING the fight?? I rest my case.

So if Khan's supporters are going to complain about being docked two points, I'd argue back that the referee gifted Khan an extra point because of the knockdown that wasn't.

I thought a draw would have been a fair result but if there was to be a winner, then it was Peterson because he was the aggressor. Khan was running away a lot of the time and a lot of judges take a dim view of this.

Khan and Golden boy only have themselves to blame for this. Why take a fight in the challenger's backyard for? They should know from experience that the chances of a "hometown" decision is always possible. I can only put this choice down to sheer arrogance of Khan and Golden Boy. They obviously handpicked Peterson as an easily winnable fight, even in Peterson's own backyard, and now it's blown up in their cocky faces.

They've lost time, money and the belts.

@johaldo

Peterson's head was often in a position that most fighters fear ,because usually when a fighter is coming in like he was a head butt to the face is the usual outcome. to prevent this from happening you have to push the man back or keep your hands on the back of his neck. Khan complained often to the ref about him coming in dangerously with his head and the ref warned Peterson often about keeping his head up. The fact that Khan was deducted points and peterson wasn't after constant warnings was suspect. If the ref would have taken a point from peterson after warning him that many times he would have bailed himself out and no one could say sh*t about him being a homer.
I think Peterson's corner had words with the ref about Khan previous to the fight about their concerns or Khan's tactics and the ref was super sensitive to that and so was the outcome. It's smart of them ,but gullible of the ref.
I thought Khan deserved to have a point taken for the amount of times he was warned ,because the ref put himself in the position where he couldn't ignore it any longer and keep any sort of credibility as an official.

Even though with the points deducted i still had Khan landing the harder shots and controlling most of the fight .There is absolutely no way you award peterson them titles in this fight and he's crazy to give Kahn a rematch ,because he will be he got incredibly fortunate . I give peterson a lot of credit though for coming back into the fight after getting hurt early on ,because i thought he was going out . He fought like a warrior and deserved respect for that ,but he didn't do enough to win them belts ,no way in hell.
