Mustafa Ameen, the ‘mystery man’ embroiled in the Khan-Peterson controversy, has threatened to sue Amir Khan and his trainer Freddie Roach if the pair do not issue a public apology over statements made about his integrity.
The governing body last week confirmed they wanted Peterson to defend their light-welterweight title against Khan after he defeated the former champ in controversial circumstances in his native Washington on December 10.
The ‘mystery man’ at the centre of the Amir Khan row has defended his actions today telling BBC Sport that he was correcting clear errors made by the fight's scoring supervisor Michael Welsh.
Lamont Peterson’s trainer Barry Hunter has hit out at Amir Khan and his team for not acting like ‘real champions’ and trying to use lawyers to achieve what the former champion couldn’t do in the ring.
The International Boxing Federation has confirmed the ‘mystery man’ accused by Amir Khan of interfering with judges' scorecards in his defeat against Lamont Peterson is not an official of the organisation.
The boxing authority said Mustafa Ameen is neither employed nor a sanctioning official, as had been previously claimed by one of the promoters of the fight.
The 'mystery man' at the centre of the storm surrounding Amir Khan's loss to Lamont Peterson was interrogated by a Team Khan member this week, as he revealed that he will attend a hearing into the fight on January 18.
