Khan’s Army | Khan V Peterson | DC Press Conference

Okay so today’s blog post is simple- has nothing to with wedding photography or anything like that!
Today I got to attend and cover the press conference for Khan V’s Peterson at Walter E. Washington Convention Center, DC.
Its simple, how could I ever turn down an opportunity to go and meet some amazing boxers all in one room right?! I just simply couldn’t! {Really the last picture  was worth the wait you’ll see what I mean when you get to end of this post!}
Okay so I’m going to make this a quick one! I get there and of course the Bolton lads gave Amir Khan a very warm and loud welcoming entrance to the Press conference today.. what can I say? they are from Bolton after all – us northerners are loud, funny and just know all about unity. I was moved (in a good way) by the strong sense of brotherhood between these lads, dedicated to what they call “Khan’s Army”
Today the Unified Light-Welterweight Champion of the World Amir Khan, received birthday cake during the press conference. Amir celebrates his 25th birthday – Happy Birthday Amir!
enjoy highlights of today’s press conference:

  1. I’m pretty pumped up for this fight tonight, I’ve been a huge fan of King Khan since his fight with Marcos Maidana. Lamont Peterson is one of the fighters in the upper echelon of boxing, but I wouldn’t call him great. Amir Khan on the other hand, I believe is one spectacular performance away from being there, so this should be a great fight. Working for DISH Network I’d strongly suggest to check out the fight on HBO tonight, channel 300 in beautiful HD. I’d also suggest to check out their HD Free for Life offer, save even more money with their HD package.
