Khan Vs. Peterson II: Golden Boy CEO Says Rematch 'Highly Unlikely' To Happen

With boxer Lamont Peterson testing positive for synthetic testosterone, his rematch with Amir Khan originally scheduled for May 19, has been thrown into doubt. Now the CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, Richard Schaefer is saying that the rematch is 'highly unlikely' to happen according to tweets from the Washington Post's Gene Wang.

Schaefer has also suggested that legal action could be taken against Peterson's camp to possibly even overturn the result of the first fight in December claiming that its now obvious that Peterson had the testosterone in his system then.

In any case, whether this fight goes on or not, Peterson's reputation will be sullied from this for probably the rest of his career.
