Boxing official threatens Khan with legal action

Mustafa Ameen, the International Boxing Federation official at the centre of the Amir Khan world title fight controversy, threatened legal action against the British star.

Khan lost his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles on a split decision to American opponent Lamont Peterson in Washington on December 10.

But Ameen, an IBF official who was ringside but had no official role at the fight, was accused by Khan of interfering with the judges' scorecards.

"Amir Khan is going to have to apologise," Ameen told Sky Sports News.

"I'm going to tell you that I am already in the process - you are hearing it first - I will litigate this.

"I am already in discussions with some of the most successful legal firms in Britain regarding the slander, the libellous statements that have been made against me by Amir Khan and other individuals in the press and I intend to fully seek a remedy in a legal form, in a court of law.

"I will give Mr Khan an opportunity. Prior to me reaching the point of no return and filing a law suit, he has the opportunity (to apologise)."
