Khan vs Peterson Rematch: Barry Hunter Says Rematch Not Set Just Yet

Though Amir Khan's team says they're targeting a March 31 date in Las Vegas for a rematch with Lamont Peterson, Peterson's trainer and manager Barry Hunter was pretty direct in an interview on MMA Nation this evening, denying that anything is set at this point.

"We don't know nothing about a March fight in Vegas," Hunter said.

Khan's Facebook page did say about an hour ago, "Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson II set for March 31 2012."

But that appears, for now, to be premature. The date sounds good, the location in Vegas seems likely, and that very well might be the rematch, on March 31 in Vegas.

It does not appear to be totally set, though, as Hunter would have to be involved in making that call, obviously, and even though the fight seems more an inevitability than anything, it has been less than 24 hours since Lamont Peterson had his hand raised in DC. It might take a few days, a couple weeks, whatever. We'll probably hear something relatively soon, but this soon might be setting a record.
