09/05/12 Peterson confirms taking testosterone
Lamont Peterson has now recently confirmed that he had taken the testosterone pellets in October 2011 prior to thier match, his attorney has also confirmed this to the Nevada state athletic commission. It was to make up for the low levels of testosterone in his body. Peterson who is set for a rematch against Amir Khan in 2 weeks had initially denyed taking the substance after the first set of results had come back from the test. This has now caused concern as Peterson has now admitetd to taking the enhancement after second test results again confirmed the drug had been taken. as it has now been confirmed that the banned substance was taken it leaves the fight on a knife edge to weather it will go ahead or not, both camps are doing everything they can to keep the match up alive.
