Peterson says Khan cannot change

Lamont Peterson has said that Amir Khan will fight the same way when they clash in their rematch in Las Vegas on May 19th.

Lamont said, “He’ll do what he always does, he fights the same. He’s either straight forward or straight back. He’s not going to change it. It won’t be any different this time. He’ll hit and move and I’ll stay close and smother him.”

If Peterson had said that Khan could not adjust in a fight then I would agree with him but the changes Freddie Roach made in him since being crushed by Breidis Prescott in 2008 have been apparent, albeit those changes happened over a period of fights rather than one.  Roach is experienced enough to give Khan a much more effective gameplan when given a second chance but it remains to be seen what Khan can do if Peterson solves the next one.
