08/05/12 Khan v peterson in jeapordy and Haye v Chisora set for July 14th

 Peterson fails drugs test

Amir khans rematch with Lamont Peterson is now in doubt of going ahead as the american's random drug test results came back positive for synthetic testoterone.The par are due to fight again on the 19th may so medical specialists are working hard to try and prove the drugs origin. The Peterson camp claims that the Welterweight Champion has never had a positive result back and believe something was wrong with the VADA test results. Medical teams are now working around the clock within the Nevada state rules to get the issue cleared up, both camps agree the fight will still go ahead.

Haye v Chisora

Its official, David Haye and Dereck Chisora will do battle on the 14th july at Upton Park in London. Its a fight that is being sanctioned by the Luxemburg Boxing Federation. Both fighters are without official Boxing licences, Haye had retired and Chisora had his taken away after thier brawl in Munich. Chisora is currently appealing the decision and wont here back untill July, Promoter Frank Warren feels his fighter should still be able to earn money. Its a match up that not only has both fighters excited, but all the British fight fans as well. It will probably gather some intrest from the other side of the pond as both Haye and Chisora are serious Heavyweight Contenders and thats exacltly what the US Boxing fans are looking for right now. Both Haye and Chisora have lost to one of the Klitschko brothers, but both fights had gone the distance and proved that they are more than capable of mixing it up in the Heavyweight division. This match up may be what both fighters need to get themselves back on the map.
