2011-12-10 Lamont Peterson w pts 12 Amir Khan, Convention Centre, Washington DC, USA - WBA/IBF. Referee: Joe Cooper. Scorecards: 113-112, 113-112, 110-115.

On 10 December at the Fair Stockade, Tepic, Nayarit, Mexico, Johan Perez won the vacant WBA ‘interim’ title when forcing Fernando Castaneda to retire at the end of the fourth round.

Having failed a drugs test that forced a return with Khan to be cancelled shortly before the fight was due to take place, Peterson currently awaits his fate.
