Khan Vs. Peterson Results Live, Round 2: Lamont Peterson Fares Better, But Amir Khan Wins Round

The main event of Washington D.C.'s first major boxing fight in 18 years pits IBF and WBA light welterweight champion Amir Khan defending his crown against D.C.'s own Lamont Peterson at the Washington Convention Center. The fight is taking place in Peterson's hometown, a rarity in boxing since he is the challenger. Joe Cooper is the referee for the bout, which began shortly after 11 p.m. Here is a recap of the second round.

The second round began a bit slower after Amir Khan dominated the first round, knocking Peterson down and nearly doing it a second time when the referee ruled that Khan slipped. Peterson started to get it going, landing a couple body shots and moving Khan around a bit. Peterson ripped a left hook, but Khan continued to move him around and force Peterson on the defensive.

The two fighters kept going at each other late in the round, and Peterson continued to land some body shots. Khan eventually fired back with some combinations, but Peterson generally fared better in that round. Nevertheless, the round was scored 10-9 in favor of Khan.
