  Amir Khan Wants Drugs Cheat Banned For Life

Former two-time world champion, and former unified WBA (Super) and IBF Light Welterweight champion, Amir Iqbal Khan, recently said he want a lifetime ban for his steroid-using opponent Lamont Peterson.

Born on 8 December 1986, Amir Khan is a British professional boxer and the youngest British Olympic boxing medalist, winning silver at the 2004 Athens Olympics at the age of 17. Nicknamed “King Khan”, he is also one of the youngest British world champions ever, winning the WBA Light Welterweight title at age 22.

Khan said he does not mind Peterson getting an exile from boxing permanently even if that costs him the millions he would have made if the pair were to fight again.

Peterson, however, refused to give up belts after he failed to clear a drug test and said he never cheated in fight with Amir Khan. The American boxer said he deserved to keep his world titles as he was unaware that his treatment for abnormally low levels of testosterone was contrary to anti-doping rules. At the time of his fight with Amir Khan, Peterson had testosterone pellets inserted into his hip before he claimed a controversial split-decision win in December.

Khan says: ‘Anyone who has been done for drugs should be banned for life. Peterson failed a test and that should be his punishment.’ He branded Peterson “a cheat” and called for the American to be stripped of both titles and the December bout declared a ‘no-contest’.

After his bout was canceled because of Peterson’s positive test for synthetic testosterone, Khan started preparing for a world light-welterweight title fight with the rising Philadelphian star, Danny García, as the World Boxing Association light-welterweight champion on July 14. Khan was hoping to defend his title against Garcia and surely deserved the distinction of entering the ring as a world champion. But destiny had other plans for him as he was crushed by Garcia and the Bolton fighter was left dispirited and confused.

 Khan was already making plans to face WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather after registering a win over Garcia; Khan was also planning to have a future bout with Timothy Bradley, who has previously rejected a fight with Khan in order for a big pay day against Manny Pacquiao.

Bradley scared, claims Amir KhanAmir Khan, who recently added the IBF belt to his WBA title by overcoming Zab Judah in their unification fight in Las Vegas, claims Timothy Bradley is too scared to take him on in a showdown to become undisputed light-welterweight king.

Khan is keen on contesting one more bout in his current division before focusing on the welterweight category and a potential clash with Floyd Mayweather in 2012.

“He was just running scared. I really think the organisations should strip him of the two titles he has at the moment and maybe vacate them for the next opponent I face, because then at least that gives another fighter the option to fight for a world title,” Khan said.
