No charges against Khan

Police will take no further action after investigating an incident which resulted in the arrest of boxer Amir Khan.

Khan was arrested and questioned in the early hours of Friday morning, 4 July, on suspicion of common assault during an incident involving two youths in his home town of Bolton.

He was bailed, pending further enquiries, but on Monday police confirmed that allegations have been dropped and they will not be pursuing the matter further.

A statement from Khan's camp read: \"This was a minor incident involving a misunderstanding between Amir Khan and two other youths.

On Monday 7th July Amir was notified by the police that the allegations against him had been withdrawn and the matter would not be pursued any further.\"

Khan is hoping to challenge Floyd Mayweather for the unbeaten WBA and WBC titles.

American Mayweather beat Argentinian Marcos Maidana on points in a title fight in Las Vegas in May and on the undercard of the same bill Khan outpointed Luis Collazo.
