Khan Vs. Peterson II Off, According To Report

The status for "Peterson Vs. Khan II: No Doubt" was in jeopardy after Lamont Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone. The rematch with Amir Khan was originally scheduled for May 19, but now according to a report that fight is now off.

The rematch was believed to be highly unlikely to happen, and now it's officially off. Khan lost the first match between the two boxers by a split decision after 12 rounds back in December of 2011.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer, who is promoting the event, has suggested that legal action could be taken against Lamont Peterson and Peterson's camp. Schaefer even went so far as to suggest looking into having the December match overturned.

According to Khan's official Twitter account, he will be looking for an opponent to fight on June 30th.
