Share Article

Team Peterson announces that a group of experienced legal and medical advisers will assist Lamont Peterson in addressing matters surrounding cancelled bout.

Over the past few weeks, much has been said and written about the results of a drug test taken by Lamont Peterson in preparation for a rematch with Amir Khan. In the world of high profile sports and in the age of instant communication, it comes as no surprise that individuals have taken the opportunity to comment on Lamont's situation and to reach conclusions without complete information.

According to Peterson's Trainer and Manager Barry Hunter, the Peterson camp has commenced a process to resolve this matter and is confident of a favorable outcome once the issues are addressed in the appropriate forum. Hunter said, "We've brought on a team to help us address the situation and Lamont is fully committed to defending himself. Once this is done, Lamont will be back on track in his boxing career."

"During my career, I've always been a proponent of anti-doping rules and drug testing in boxing," Lamont said. Peterson also explained, "I passed all of the tests from the last Khan fight and I insisted that random drug testing be a condition of any Khan rematch."

"We're deeply disappointed that the fight was cancelled," Hunter offered. The Peterson camp has since engaged a team to address the matter and to ensure a full and fair process going forward. In the absence of a scheduled bout, the Nevada State Athletic Commission has agreed to give Lamont sufficient time to address the issues properly, and the Peterson camp intends to work cooperatively with the Nevada State Athletic Commission in that regard.
