Khan vs Peterson: Peterson is Tough For Khan, Mayweather is Next - Roach

Trainer Freddie Roach expects a very tough challenger from Lamont Peterson (29-1-1, 15 KOs), who faces one of Roach’s star fighters, IBF/WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan (26-1, 18 KOs), on December 10th in Washington, DC. Roach did some work with Peterson not long ago, and he was impressed with Peterson's speed and power.

During the last few weeks, Roach has heard the rumblings about a possible 2012 showdown between Khan and WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Roach is confident that Khan can beat Mayweather right now. The veteran trainer was hoping that another one of his fighters, Manny Pacquiao, would get to Mayweather first. But, Roach has a feeling Khan is going to get there before Pacquiao. Should Khan defeat Peterson, then Roach is going to push for his boxer to secure the Mayweather fight in 2012.

"I know there has been a lot of talk about another of my fighters, Amir, fighting Mayweather," said Roach to reporter Joaquin Henson." We’ve got Peterson first and funnily enough, I was just in the Olympic training camp with him. It was kind of a mistake but we did a rotation workout and Peterson ended up in my rotation and after two rounds, his trainer found out and pulled him out.

"He has a good style and is very physical so we have a tough fight ahead of us. But after Peterson, we will go after Mayweather. I love that fight, I was hoping Manny would get there first but I know both my fighters can beat him so I have no worries."
