By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing - This Saturday, Amir Khan vs. Lamont Peterson goes down at the Washington D.C. Events Center.
It's an important fight for Khan who is looking to build and gain more
fame recognition in the USA. Khan, from Britain is hoping to emulate
the great names of other legendary UK boxers who fought and made a name
for themselves on American soil.
Khan, quoted recently by the telegraph.co.uk, discussed how he
wanted to make it big in America and be remembered alongside other
greats from his region, such as Ricky Hatton, Lennox Lewis, Joe Calzaghe
and "Prince" Naseem Hamed.
“But I want to be a huge name in the United
States," stated Khan, adding: "and become a British fighter that people
remember alongside the likes of Ricky Hatton, Naseem Hamed, Lennox Lewis
and Joe Calzaghe. They all came to the States and left a legacy."
For shits and giggles... "Amir Khan" sounds like "American"
if you say it quick enough.
Also regarding Khan from Today's headlines:
Amir Khan - "My ultimate aim within boxing is..."
