Lightbulb Amir Khan's v Lamont Peterson Confirmed May 19. - 02-10-2012, 05:33 AM

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer revealed to Sky Sports News HD that Amir Khan's rematch with Lamont Peterson will take place in Las Vegas on May 19.

Peterson took the WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in controversial circumstances in the first meeting of the pair on December 10 in Washington, with his opponent twice deducted a point by referee Joseph Cooper, who also opted not to score an early knockdown in Khan's favour, for pushing.

Khan appealed against the outcome and the WBA confirmed in January that they wanted their new champion to defend the belt against the Brit.

The saga continued when Peterson lodged "a comprehensive written appeal" of his own against the WBA's decision.

But Schaefer has now confirmed he has received a signed contract from Peterson for a rematch and the duo will get the chance to settle their differences in the ring at the Mandalay Bay Hotel.
