It has been reported that Mustafa Ameen, the so called Mystery Man involved in the Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson fight, is set to take legal action against Amir Khan following Khan’s allegations that he interfered with the judge’s scorecards during his controversial defeat against Lamont Peterson. Mustafa has demanded that Amir Khan and his team issue a full apology.
Mustafa Ameen claims that the allegations that Amir Khan and the rest of his people made against him were very disturbing and extremely serious. Mustafa stated that, unless he receives a full apology, as well as a retraction, he will be forced to take legal action against Amir Khan and the rest of the people who have tarnished his good name. Ameen is angry that his character has been slandered by, not only Amir Khan but also his trainer Freddie Roach and Golden Boy Promotions.
Team Khan claimed that Mustafa Ameen tampered with the judging score card, after one of the scores for round seven was changed. It originally had the round as 10-8 to Khan, however this could not be possible, as Khan had a point deducted in that round. Amir Khan has withdrawn his appeal to the IBF, while Lamont Peterson has appealed the WBA’s decision to order a rematch.
