    Amir Khan went down to a shock points defeat by Lamont Peterson to lose his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles in a pulsating fight in Washington DC.
    Two points deducted from Khan for pushing proved crucial as the judges scored the fight at 113-112, 113-112, 111-114 in favour of the local fighter.
    The Briton knocked Peterson down in the first round, but the American launched huge attacks in the third and seventh.
    Khan recovered, but the second lost point in the final round was decisive.
    "It was like I was against two people in there - the referee and Lamont himself," complained Khan immediately after the decision.
    "Every time he was coming into me he kept putting his head low. I was the cleaner fighter - he was so wild in there.

    Ah! guess they are running out of sporting options after the 3/3 cricket debacle they did. Now even boxing is out of their hands. :pound:.

    Reminds me of the following video :D ---




    Pakistanis; they never fail to prove you right. Hahaha!
