The 27-year-old boxer was arrested in the early hours of Friday morning after an incident in Russell Street, Heaton, in which two teenagers, both aged 19, were said to be injured.

Amir spent hours in custody before being released on bail.

After being released from custody Amir tweeted: “It's all nonsense. Please don't believe what you read. I'm home with my family and nobody got beat up.”

"Shortly thereafter he was released on police bail pending further enquiries.

“This was a minor incident involving a misunderstanding between Amir Khan and two other youths.

“On Monday, July 7, Amir was notified by the police that the allegations against him had been withdrawn and the matter would not be pursued any further.”
