Amir Khan vs. Lamont Peterson Video: Full Fight Highlights

Last night saw Amir Khan take on Lamont Peterson in Washington D.C. on HBO Championship Boxing. Khan entered the bout as one of boxing's biggest stars and was a huge favorite to retain his 140 pound title before a planned jump to 147 pounds. Bouts with Timothy Bradley and Floyd Mayweather were being talked about for Khan once the seeming formality of beating Peterson was taken care of.

Instead, Peterson turned it into a fight and was able to hit Khan clean with repeated success. Even though he was down in the first round, Peterson came back strong and turned what was expected to be a blowout into a late fight of the year contender.

In the end Peterson took a very narrow split decision which sets up a rematch with Khan claiming that it was home cooking for Lamont.
