Khan vs Peterson: Mustafa Ameen Admits to Helping Correct Scorecard

"Mystery man" Mustafa Ameen, an IBF associate whose role in the Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson post-fight has been debated and speculated about in the last couple of weeks, says that he didn't do anything wrong, but did correct a card being looked over by WBA supervisor Michael Welsh:

"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'."

Someone needs to get Mustafa Ameen to stop talking to the press, because he's not helping anything. The way he talks is just weird. He "believes" it could have been nine, nine and nine "which is 27 all day long." Then he says maybe that wasn't quite it. But then he says that he said "nine times three is 27." And then the other guy was sick, making Ameen some sort of hero.

You know what I'm saying here? It just comes off poorly. Reads as sketchy and weird. There's an inconsistency to his statement that makes it seem like he's scrambling to put it together or something.

The latest on Khan vs Peterson is the same as yesterday: The WBA has ordered a rematch, but Team Khan withdrew their appeal with the IBF, which was to take place today.
