We are hearing word from multiple sources that the World Boxing Association (WBA) will strip Lamont Peterson of his WBA Super Lightweight title that he won on December 10th in DC.
According to Richard Schaefer, CEO of Golden Boy Promotions, the WBA will declare the title vacant because of the recent Peterson drug test situation and make the July 14 title bout between former champ Amir Khan and current WBC titleholder Danny Garcia a unification bout.
There is no official word from the WBA on this situation as of yet. Peterson still holds the IBF version of the title pending a meeting with the International Boxing Federation later this year. Sources tell BATB that barring any surprises, the IBF will allow Peterson to keep that title.
