LONDON: British boxer Amir Khan was denied entry into USA where he planned to watch Floyd Mayweather’s rematch with Marcos Maidana from ringside in Las Vegas on Saturday.
The 27-year-old tweeted: “Visa to America was declined after I had it approved a week ago. Was looking forward to the fight. Means I’m still in England.”
He experienced visa problems back in 2010 as well when a proposed training camp in Los Angles had to be relocated to Vancouver. Later Amir disclosed that he was held at L.A customs because he is a muslim.
Earlier this year Amir Khan was arrested on charges of assault in Bolton but the accusations were later withdrawn.
