Khan Vs. Peterson Results Live, Round 3: Lamont Peterson Strikes Back

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 third round.

Early on, Amir Khan continued to be aggressive, while Lamont Peterson was content to wait it out. Khan was able to sneak in several combinations, while Peterson was unable to land much early in the third round. But that soon changed. Peterson landed a hard right hand midway through the round to help turn his fortunes. Peterson continued to move Khan around, but Khan was able to escape at first. But then Peterson landed some more some strong left hooks and then hit him with a right hand punch. Peterson continued to force Khan to the ropes at the end of the round and may have dazed Khan.

Khan closed the round with a couple good punches, but it looks like Peterson was finally able to win a round. He took it, 10-9.
