Amir Khan Arrested, Allegedly Attacked Two Teens

by David P. Greisman

Welterweight contender Amir Khan has been accused of assaulting two teenagers early Friday morning in the United Kingdom as the teens were headed home from a mosque, according to The Bolton News.

The alleged attack stemmed from one of the teens saying something disrespectful to one of Khan’s friends, the report said.

“Police said the two men were hurt but not seriously injured in the incident,” the newspaper said. “One of the alleged victims is believed to have suffered an injury on his cheek and the other on his leg. The men were known to Amir.”

Khan, 27, became a full-fledged 147-pounder this past May when he outpointed Luis Collazo on the undercard to Floyd Mayweather’s win over Marcos Maidana. That brought the former junior-welterweight titleholder’s record to 29-3 with 19 KOs. The defeats came via first-round knockout to Breidis Prescott in 2008, by a very close and controversial split decision to Lamont Peterson in late 2011, and by a fourth-round stoppage to Danny Garcia in 2012.

Since then, he’s beaten Carlos Molina, struggled in a win over Julio Diaz, and topped Collazo.
