AMIR KHAN has enrolled in the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program after missing the initial deadline and being dropped from their rankings.

The WBC gave all their champions and top 15 ranked contenders in every division until October 11 to enrol in the program, and revealed a list of 25 fighters – including Khan – who had missed that date.

However Khan, who sat in the No 1 spot at welterweight but has since been replaced by Andre Berto, today announced he has enrolled in the program in a bid to retain his mandatory challenger status.
