Khan alleges judge interference

Khan dethroned

Amir Khan has alleged a mystery man interfered with the judges scoring during his controversial points loss to Lamont Peterson. 

Khan has taken to Twitter to post a series of messages, videos and pictures to back up his claims.

Now this whole thing to me still smacks of desperation from the Khan camp but for once he might actually have a point here.

Everyone knows you’re not meant to interfere with judges during the fight at all and if you see the pictures and video footage of the fight you can clearly see judge Michael Walsh missing parts of the fight due to this mystery man

Hopefully we will get an answer to this whole thing very soon because IF it is true then it is a shocking end for boxing in 2011; a year that had some its fair share of questionable scoring (Murray-Sturm, Macklin-Sturm, Pacquaio-Marquez and Chisora-Helenius).

But view the slideshow and video below and judge for yourselves but please keep this in mind; if the decision had gone in Khan’s favour and Peterson was crying foul would Khan care? Or even consider a rematch?

What does everyone think? Does Khan have a point? Or is he just clutching at straws?
