The Amir Khan-Lamont Peterson fight in DC last month ended with a surprising and narrow split decision win for the underdog Peterson in front of his hometown crowd. Khan is a budding superstar. Peterson is a solid fighter. He could have pulled off an upset, but he didn't, not according to our boxing correspondent, Hamilton Nolan, who was at the fight. Khan was docked points for pushing in rounds seven and twelve and lost 112-113 on the scorecards of the two judges. He lost his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles.
