However, a spokesman for the 27-year-old former WBA and IBF light welterweight champion said he expected the case would be dropped.

Greater Manchester Police said officers were called to a street in Amir’s home town of Bolton in northwest England at about 1:30 am (0030 GMT) on Friday.

Officers “discovered two 19-year-old men had been assaulted. Their injuries are not serious. “A 27-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of two... assaults.” He was taken into custody for questioning.

A spokesman for the Olympic silver medallist confirmed he had been quizzed by officers but added: “It was a minor incident and we're expecting the case to be dropped against Amir,” the spokesman said. “We’re expecting to formally hear that from police on Monday morning.”
