Hottie of the week: Amir Khan

British professional boxer Amir Iqbal Khan is our macho man with a heart.

Who is he?

British professional boxer Amir Iqbal Khan is our macho man with a heart. We love him for being one of the youngest British world champions ever, winning the WBA Light Welterweight title at age 22 and for his philanthropic works include the National Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children (NSPCC), National Literacy Trust, and Great Ormond Street Hospital. Even though he was born and bred in England he has managed to keep close to his Muslim lineage and is an active supporter of the Muslim Writer’s Awards..

Why he is droolworthy

That chiselled bronze face and too-perfect-to-be-real body are reasons enough. He looks like he just jumped out of Photoshop but we thank our lucky stars that it’s all real there. He was on the cover page of Esquire in a tuxedo, looking like a delectable mix of east and west. He was in the news for knocking out six men who tried to steal his car. We’d say that’s one lucky Range Rover there that had Amir Khan fighting for it. His everyday heroism makes us want to date someone who is as comfortable with knocking people out as he is. Let’s face it — we all fantasise about being the girl men brawl over.

What you didn’t know about him

Whether for  boxing or for his relationship, he is always in the limelight. His recent tweet “Is single life the best life?” sparked fear amongst his fans, who speculated that his relationship with the beautiful Faryal Makhdoom was over. Amir was also accused of romping with two girls and someone even warned Faryal not to marry him, saying: “He is a cheat.” However, this boxer knows how to stick with his woman when the going gets tough. He denied all allegations and moved on with his wedding plans. And eventually his charms won Faryal’s trust as she tweeted: “Life is way too short for stupid fights and arguments. Cherish the moments.” How we wish for that one true love, who would fight the rumour monster for us and make us feel like his Number One.

The verdict
