Khan annoyed by fight cancellation

Amir Khan says he is frustrated that he will not get the chance to settle the score with Lamont Peterson now that the WBA and IBF champion has failed a drugs test.

The 25-year-old lost his light-welterweight world titles to his American counterpart in controversial circumstances in Washington DC last year.

Both boxers agreed to random drug testing before their rematch on 19 May in Las Vegas and the fight has now been cancelled because Peterson has tested positive for synthetic testosterone.

Khan hopes to arrange another fight for June or July, possibly against the WBC light-welterweight champion Danny Garcia, and adds that he would still like to face Floyd Mayweather in the future.
