Khan needs to find a better way to deal with Peterson’s pressure rather than shoving and pushing down on his head

Khan Peterson Khan vs. Peterson  lamont peterson amir khan By William Mackay: I find it hilarious that Amir Khan’s promoter Richard Schaefer thinks he’s got a good case to have Khan’s loss to Lamont Peterson overturned.
