Bolton boxer Amir Khan is demanding to be reinstated after his opponent Lamont Peterson failed a drugs test. A rematch had been organised after their original, disputed fight in December but this has now been cancelled.
Khan is likely to fight on 30 June for the World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation light-welterweight titles he lost to Peterson in Washington. An opponent has yet to be announced.
