Khan Vs. Peterson Results Live, Round 10: Amir Khan, Lamont Peterson Head To Tight Finish

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 10th round.

Lamont Peterson badly needed to rebound after losing the ninth round, and immediately pinned Amir Khan on the boards in the first 40 seconds of the 10th round. Peterson was able to dodge a couple hard attempts by Khan, and the two fighters continued to dance around each other.

Khan largely kept the fight in the middle of the round until the 50-second mark, when he wandered to the ropes and took a hard right hand to the face. He rebounded to land a strong combination at the 30-second mark to regain control of the round. Ultimately, Khan's landed more punches, but Peterson's shots have done more.

It's hard to say who won that round.
