British boxer Amir Khan has posted a series of pictures on Twitter showing what he says is an unidentified man ''interfering'' with the WBA fight supervisor during his split-decision loss to American Lamont Peterson in their light-welterweight title bout. Khan appealed the scoring and raised new questions about last month's fight on his Twitter feed, pointing out a man wearing a hat who sits down ringside next to WBA supervisor Michael Welsh during the bout. The man is seen leaning over Welsh several times and appears to pick up a scorecard on at least two occasions. Khan tweeted that the man's behavior is ''strictly against the rules'' and says: ''Who is this guy? And what was he doing?'' The 25-year-old Englishman lost his WBA and IBF titles in the Dec. 11 defeat in Washington after points were deducted on two occasions for pushing.
