Former junior welterweight titleholder and current welterweight contender Amir Khan was arrested and released on bail on suspicion of two assaults, according to a report from Reuters.

"Just before 1.30am on Friday 4 July 2014 police were called following reports of an assault in Bolton," the statement read.

"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 and has been bailed until mid-July pending further enquiries."

Khan downplayed the incident on his Twitter account, and hasn't brought it up again:

Khan, 27, will still have to address this officially later in some capacity, though I have no idea if there's really anything substantial to the charges here. But that's the story of Amir Khan's arrest and bail release. Riveting!
