Khan vs Peterson Washington DC Press Conference

The Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson show turned up in Washington DC yesterday afternoon to announce the return of championship boxing to the US capital.

Khan and Peterson will face off in the Convention Center on December 10 in the first fight the city has seen since former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson lost to Kevin McBride in 2005.

‘We want to bring boxing back to Washington and maybe this will be the first of many fights here,’ said Khan, who turns 25 just two days before the fight. ‘These kinds of fights take me to the next level.’

And for Washington DC native Peterson, the chance to fight in front of his home crowd is a ‘dream come true’. ‘I dreamed about this day many, many times attending the big fights at the Verizon Center. I would go back to the gym and just wish that one day I would get my opportunity,’ said Peterson.
