Khan’s team was trying to secure Peterson a few weeks ago, but the negotiations fell apart over money. According to Khan’s American trainer Freddie Roach, the offer to Peterson has been increased and he believes that the two sides will now come to an agreement to meet.
“Last thing that I heard they were trying to sign Lamont Peterson. That was the fight that everyone wanted. Lamont wanted too much money at first, but they’re probably going to work it out. I heard that Lamont wanted a half million and that they offered him $300,000,” Roach said.
Whoever Khan fights next, there is no such problem in who he will be fighting after that, and that boxer will be Timothy Bradley, the WBO and WBC light-welterweight champion, who recently defeated rival Devon Alexandra to claim another title to add to his collection, and he will have his eyes now on Khan’s and equally Khan will want to fulfill his ambitions and dreams of unifying the titles before moving up in weight to chase a fight with Floyd Mayweather Jnr.
