Obviously the boxing world has been pretty upset at the cancellation of the upcoming Amir Khan vs. Lamont Peterson rematch. Word officially broke of the cancellation last night, and we’ve already seen a statement from Team Peterson on the ruling. Now, here’s Amir Khan reaching out to his fans with a statement.
No one was more shocked and upset by the cancellation of next week’s fight than me. I had been training hard for almost eight weeks and was ready to put on a dazzling performance and win my belts back. I know many of you purchased tickets for the fight and had planned to make the trip to Las Vegas next weekend. For any inconvenience or hardship this cancellation has caused, I am truly sorry. We’re working hard to schedule my next fight for some time during the early summer in the States and hope that you can find a way to reschedule your arrangements and come out support me with the enthusiasm that you always do. As you know, I always perform at my best when my fans are rooting me on. Thanks as always for your support.
