Police not pursuing assault charges against Amir Khan

Jan Kruger

The police have dropped all charges against Amir Khan stemming from the alleged assault the occurred on July 4th.

Early on July 4th, Great Manchester Police arrested Amir Khan in Bolton on suspicion for assaulting two 19-year-old men. After the incident, Khan's camp released a statement: "This was a minor incident involving a misunderstanding between Amir Khan and two other youths."

According to Sky Sports, the police have dropped all charges and will not be pursuing the matter.

Khan (29-3, 19 KO) last fought on May 3, beating Luis Collazo in Las Vegas on the Mayweather vs Maidana card. Recently, the 27-year-old former junior welterweight titlist has spoken about possibly fighting Manny Pacquiao later this year, and remains a potential front-runner for a fight with Mayweather in May 2015, as he was not available to face Floyd in September due to Ramadan.

The good news is that Khan's career won't be sidelined any further by this story, which has amounted to nothing. Thus ends the riveting saga of Death Wish 6: Amir Khan vs. Two Other Youths.
