The boxer Amir Khan has alleged an unidentified man ‘interfered’ with ringside officials during a World Title match last month. In a series of tweets, he claims the fight supervisor for the World Boxing Association Michael Welsh can be seen apparently being disturbed by a man in a blue shirt and hat sitting to his left. Amir lost the fight and two light-welterweight titles to Lamont Peterson in Washington DC.
