WASHINGTONDC PRESS CONFERENCE QUOTES

 

Amir Khan, Unified Super Lightweight World Champion

“We never get two nice guys in a fight. We’ve got two nice guys fighting here, but I’m sure once we put the gloves on for the fight, it will be a different story. 

“It’s going to be a big fight. It’s going to be an explosive fight. I hope we see you guys there and hope you can get some tickets before they all sell out.” 

Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson Will Be Explosive

Lamont Peterson, #1 Rated IBF Contender

“It’s a dream come true for me. I’ve dreamt about this day many, many times. Just attending the big fights, I would go home and go back to the gym and just wish that one day I would get my opportunity. Well, this is my chance right here to win two world titles here in my hometown.

“I’m sure Khan will be training hard to defend his titles, but I’ll be training even harder to protect my home turf.

“It’s a dream come true. Come December 10, I just have to go in there and take care of business.

“I’m here to win. At the end of the day, none of that [Khan’s past achievements] matters to me. When we get in the ring, what he’s done in the past does not matter. It matters what he’s going do when we get in there for 12 rounds. I believe he’s going lose.

“I don’t think he chose to fight in DC because he’s overlooking me or anything like that. I know that a lot of his people will be here, because I’ve fought on his cards in Vegas, and they come all the way to Vegas. So I know they have no problem taking a little quick plane ride over here.

“Hopefully, we buy the tickets before they [Khan fans] come over and buy them, and they can be all my people and none of his. So the crowd can be loud, live and hyping me up and hopefully getting on his nerves.
