As BoxingScene.com previously reported, WBC silver welterweight champion Amir Khan was arrested by police over an incident Friday in which two 19-year-old men were allegedly assaulted.
However, a spokesman for the 27-year-old former WBA and IBF light welterweight champion said he expected the case would be dropped.
Greater Manchester Police said officers were called to a street in Khan’s hometown of Bolton in northwest England at about 1:30am local time on Friday.
Officers “discovered two 19-year-old men had been assaulted. Their injuries are not serious. A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of two ... assaults.” He was taken into custody for questioning.
A spokesman for the Olympic silver medal winner confirmed he had been quizzed by officers but added:
“It was a minor incident and we’re expecting the case to be dropped against Amir,” the spokesman said. “We’re expecting to formally hear that from police on Monday morning.”
