Amir Kahn Accuses Lamont Peterson And Washington Of Fighting Low And Dirty: Photos
Kahn was scathing:
“It was like I was against two people in there. He kept trying to pick me up. He was wild. He was coming in with his head lower and lower every time. I had to push him away because he was trying to come in with his head. He was just so low. He was being effective in pressurising me but I was the cleaner fighter all night.
“I am ready for a rematch. I am here and I will take it. I knew it would be tough against him in his home town and this is why boxing has not been in Washington DC for 20 years – because you get a decision like that. I thought he was going to headbutt me and that is why I pushed him.”
Shah Khan, the fighter’s father, adds:
“It’s been 18 years since they had a big fight here and maybe it will be 18 years again.”
Washington… Corrupt..? Discuss. In private.
A rematch is a dead certainty.
