Khan's Ringside Mystery Man Revealed - An IBF Official

According to a report by Sky Sports News, Golden Boy Promotions have revealed the indentity of Amir Khan's "mystery man" - who was spotted ringside during his controversial split decision loss to Lamont Peterson last month. The man is an IBF official.

Khan created a firestorm of controversy on Thursday when he tweeted photos and video of a "mystery man" talking to WBA fight supervisor Michael Welsh as he appears to point out something on a scorecard. Khan showed photos of the man touching score slips and the boxer claimed the individual in question was distracting officials.

Another photo was also being circulated, which showed the "mystery man" standing inside the ring with the Peterson camp, after the fight was over, which created rumors that he was somehow connected to Peterson's team.

Khan lost his IBF and WBA junior welterweight titles to Peterson last month in Washington DC but his team is appealing the decision. Schaefer, per the advice of his lawyers, did not reveal the name and/or position of the IBF official.

Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer told Sky Sports News the man is an IBF official - although he was not assigned to the Khan-Peterson fight which was sanctioned by both governing bodies. Schaefer has called for an immediate rematch or for the fight to be declared a no-contest.

"The right thing to do is declare a no-contest. There's enough controversy to warrant a no-contest decision. In any case, both governing bodies should order a rematch and the fighters can settle things in the ring.

[QUOTE=£-4-£]If the IBF don't sanction a rematch then the WBA can refuse to recognise Peterson as their champion and re-instate Khan as the WBA champion.[/QUOTE] Yeah I thought so, I meant Khan then wouldn't be the unified champion that way. Amir Khan has himself to blame, he didn't fight the ...

So the guy is and IBF official of some sort..yet he was not sanctioned to be ringside, and certainly had no right to be sat where he was and handling the score-cards ect. The whole thing looks very fishy, but even if it turns out this guy had no influence on occurings that night at all..he sh...

[QUOTE=KrisSilver]Guys, I've been calling Khan crying to losing a close fight for weeks now, like many given the immediate out cry. BUT, I challenge anyone to stop making rash comments and watch this video. That footage is of a seriously dodgey nature, with someone not allowed to be even ne...

[QUOTE=lfc19titles]Whats wrong with idiots on here the man was not sanctioned to be even watching the fight at ring side, he lied to get close and then got closer and did something dodgy with the judges which all can see how on earth did the ibf allow an unsanctioned official to break the r...
