The Amir Khan - Lamont Peterson fight will be taking place Saturday night at the Convention Center in Washington D.C.. On Thursday the two sides held a press conference, which tends to be a pretty interesting event before big fights like this. Here are highlights from this fight courtesy of SB Nation's own Luke Thomas, who was in attendance.

The highlight might have honestly been Bernard Hopkins dressed like a hipster. Speaking of which, here is more one on one with Hopkins.
Hopkins talks a lot about other subjects, but he is a good source of analysis for the upcoming fight.
