Sports Briefs: Peterson to face Khan in rematch of contested fight
LONDON — After a contested fight, American Lamont Peterson believes he will only receive full credit for beating Amir Khan if he repeats the effort in their upcoming rematch.
Khan lost his WBA and IBF belts in a split-decision loss to Peterson on Dec. 10, but was granted a rematch at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas on May 19 after complaining about the referee’s decision to deduct him two points for pushing.
He also was upset by the presence of an unauthorized man at ringside who was seen distracting an official during the bout in the District.
Khan (26-2, with 18 knockouts) is not the only one feeling a sense of injustice. Claims that Peterson isn’t a legitimate champion because of the perceived shadowy events also have left the 28-year-old feeling aggrieved.
MLB puts expanded replay on back burner
NEW YORK — Major League Baseball says expanded replay will have to wait at least another year.
Baseball had hoped to increase video reviews this season to include trapped balls, fair-or-foul calls down the lines and fan interference all around the ballpark.
The additional replay required the approval of MLB and the unions representing the umpires and the players. MLB executive Rob Manfred told the Associated Press on Tuesday that all three sides weren’t able to come up with an agreement.

With Detroit, Pauley was 0-2 with a 5.95 ERA in 14 games and left off the postseason roster.
