Lamont Peterson has agreed to a rematch with Amir Khan in Las Vegas in May, the Bolton fighter's camp have confirmed.

Khan, 25, will fight the American for a second time on 19 May at the the Mandalay Bay Hotel, his spokesman revealed.

The WBA last month ordered a rematch after Peterson defeated Khan in controversial circumstances to win the WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles on December 10.
