Amir Khan reinstated as WBA champion ahead of Danny Garcia fight

Posted: July 12, 2012 in Uncategorized

Amir Khan has been reinstated as WBA light-welterweight champion by the governing body.

The news serves as a timely boost for the Botlon boxer ahead of his fight with Danny Garcia in Las Vegas this weekend.

The Bolton boxer lost his WBA and IBF belts in a controversial points defeat to American Lamont Peterson, last December.

Khan was twice docked points for pushing during the contest before Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone, which he claims is for medical reasons, before a scheduled rematch between the pair in May.
