And now things truly start to get weird. For those who have not been following the Amir Khan post-fight conspiracy here is a little summary of events. It started when Amir Khan was looking at some fight footage and he noticed some strange behavior coming from an unidentified man in a hat. The man was seen talking to the WBA supervisor Michael Welsh and even touching the official scorecard.
Eventually, the mystery man was identified as Mustafa Ameen, a man who has done some work with the IBF but not an IBF official. In order to defend his strange actions, Ameen has told various sources that he spotted a mistake on Welsh's card. Welsh responded by thanking Ameen and telling him that he was not feeling well. The next course of action would be to contact the WBA supervisor to see if he corroborates with Ameen's story. However, no one has been able to contact Welsh. According to Gareth A. Davies of The Telegraph, the vice-president of the WBA Gilbert Mendoza has been trying to talk to the WBA supervisor but has had no luck.
"We are sending a WBA director to visit Michael Welsh at his home as we have been unable to get through to him for the last week. The most we know is that he has personal issues he is dealing with. We have called him several times but we are getting no response from him. We hope that by the end of the weekend we will be able to out a statement explaining this entire situation."
This seems very weird on the surface, but then I thought ‘What would I do if I was Michael Welsh?' If I knew I did something wrong, then I would get the hell out of dodge. However, even if I did nothing wrong and everything checks out I would still not want to deal with the media frenzy. I would probably leave town and let everything settle down for a short period of time, even if I did anything wrong. Iron out all of the details with the WBA once the media circus dies down. If you were Michael Welsh what would you do? Would you talk to the media or would you skip town?
