Khan – Peterson hearing cancelled after interference from mystery woman

January 18, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

Boxing is reeling from another hefty right-hook of controversy after the hearing into the fallout of the announcement of the rematch of the Amir Khan bout with Lamont Peterson.

Peterson’s camp called the appeal off when they noticed an unknown woman lurking around the judges. Reports claimed it was Khan’s mum.

Sneaky fightback

Peterson’s promoter claimed, “We saw there was a woman near the judges, but she’s not an IBF official, so who is she?”

This was in spite of Khan’s Golden Boy Productions offering to share revenue of the hearing half and half with Peterson.

Khan’s mum is said to be “disappointed” at not being allowed to go public with her version of events.

The WBA is expected to order a rematch for the hearing and demand all revenue be given to itself.
