Last week, Lamont Peterson surprised the boxing world as he outpointed Amir Khan to win the WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in his home town of Washington DC.
Many boxing fans including myself are pondering what Lamont and his team have installed for us in 2012.
Lamont Peterson stated that he is open for a rematch against Amir Khan but also has his eyes on a rematch against WBO light-welterweight champion Timothy Bradley.
Bradley out boxed Peterson in 2009, beating him in the WBO scrap; Peterson is hungry to avenge the loss and become a three time world champion.
He may wait for Mexican legend and reigning WBC light-welterweight champion Erik Morales who is scheduled to face undefeated challenger Danny Garcia on January 28th 2012.
All three fights are appealing to me as a boxing fan but I would prefer to see a rematch against Amir Khan because of the electricity and controversy that surrounded their bout last week.
