Track great Michael John­son is re­cov­er­ing from a mini stroke last week. The 50-year-old for­mer sprinter said on Twit­ter he “rather sur­pris­ingly” was stricken with a tran­sient is­chemic at­tack. John­son, a four-time Olympic gold medal­ist, wrote that he has been “cleared of any heart is­sues.” ... English wel­ter­weight Amir Khan had to get off the can­vas to con­tinue his come­back with a points win over Sa­muel Var­gas in Birm­ing­ham, Eng­land. In his sec­ond fight since a two-year ab­sence, Khan was knocked down late in the sec­ond round. But the 31-year-old Khan (33-4), a for­mer world su­per light­weight cham­pion, earned a unan­i­mous points vic­tory.
