Khan Vs. Peterson II: Peterson's Camp Optimistic Fight Will Go Ahead

The camp for boxer Lamont Peterson is optimistic that the May 19 rematch with Amir Khan will take place as scheduled, despite the recent news of Peterson testing positive for a banned substance. Barry Svrluga talked with Peterson's trainer, Barry Hunter and then tweeted about the optimism the Peterson camp has.

Right now, the fate of the rematch is in the hands of the Nevada Athletic Commission. A decision by them could come as late as Thursday according to Gene Wang.

If the rematch goes forward as scheduled, it will take place at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, Nevada.
