Mystery Man Admits He Helped Correct Khan-Peterson Card

'Mystery man' Mustafa Ameen has admitted he did get involved with the scorecards during Amir Khan's controversial defeat by Lamont Peterson on December 10 but claims he was simply helping to correct mistakes.

Ameen's unexplained involvement at ringside recently became the latest in a line of complaints from Englishman Khan following his split decision loss in Washington, which saw the local fighter snatch his WBA and IBF light-welterweight titles.

Ameen had been unidentified at first before being named by promoter Richard Schaefer of Golden Boy. The IBF admitted he was loosely affiliated to them but insisted was not carrying out any official duties on fight night.

Yet Ameen - who denies any wrongdoing - has admitted today he did get involved with WBA supervisor Michael Welsh.

"I noticed one error and a subsequent error. I assisted him in correcting it without touching anything," he told BBC Sport.

"I happened to look down, I believe at the end of the third round, I looked down and I saw Mr Welsh's score," said Ameen.

"I saw, I believe, it could have been nine, nine and nine - which is 27 all day long. There was an error. It might have been 26 or 28 but he was off by a point or two.

"I happened to look down and I said 'Michael, nine times three is 27'. He said 'oh my God' and corrected himself.

"And he said 'I'm not feeling well this evening, thank you very much'."
