WBA orders Khan-Peterson rematch

Updated: January 13, 2012

The World Boxing Association says it has granted Amir Khan a rematch against Lamont Peterson.

Khan lost his WBA and IBF belts to Peterson on a split decision after being docked two points for pushing in the Dec. 10 fight in Washington.

Khan appealed against the scoring and questioned the presence of a “mystery man” distracting judges at ringside.

Now WBA vice president Gilberto Jesus Mendoza says “we have ordered a direct rematch.”
