Khan (26-1, 18 KO) will be putting his IBF and WBA junior welterweight titles on the line against Peterson (29-1-1, 15 KO) in Peterson's backyard for this one, and it's the first major fight in DC in quite a while. Khan figures to bring over some fans with him and the atmosphere could be good, as we often see when fights are held where fans might care about the fighters and the fight more than just being there.
It also figures to be Khan's final fight at 140 pounds should he win, as the British star has designs on moving to welterweight and chasing a fight with Floyd Mayweather next year.
