Amir Kahn (26-1) and Lamont Peterson (29-1-1) was a sight to see (i.e. standing room only for fans and late arrivers) in the DC area. Representatives from Golden Boy, HBO Boxing, Events DC, and both players' camps spoke at the event.
Especially since this was a local event for both of us, I should've expected to see ESPN's Dan Rafael, but was still surprised to see him again. He and I had met and talked on the plane back from Dallas, after the Antonio Margarito v Manny Pacquiao fight. He told me that I'd be hooked after the fight, and he was right! Since Margarito v Pacquiao I've seen Sergio Martinez knock out Paul Williams, and Pacquiao defeat Shane Mosley. But I digress...
Fans of Khan and Peterson should follow them on Twitter since both more or less invited their fans to come on out and support them at the presser.
Below are their Twitter details:
