British boxer Amir Khan landed in Lahore on Friday with his wife and daughter on a three to four day tour of Pakistan.

While talking to the media, he said he has brought his wife and daughter to Pakistan for the very first time and they are really happy to be here.

Amir further said that he has come to Pakistan for only three to four days but will visit the country next month for a longer tour.

Current World Boxing Council Silver Welterweight champion said that he will meet the Pakistani boxers and also share his experiences with them.

The 28-year-old boxer said that he wants to challenge the youth of Pakistan.

He said he will also visit the Aamir Khan boxing academy which is being run under the Punjab Sports Board.

Recently, Amir Khan is trying to get a fight with pound-for-pound unbeaten boxer Floyd Maywearther Jr. Amir is optimistic that the undefeated champion will give him a chance to meet him in the ring soon.


Mubashir | 8 years ago | Reply He came to Pakistan and then go away.........what is this???? You are a Pakistani Champion you should help our youngsters by giving him training but its said that you don't show any intrust in helping your country members....... :(
77A | 8 years ago | Reply One of the most high profile Pakistanis in the Western hemisphere. He gets a lot of hate from some quarters, i can see why, the man is worth in excess of $50 million. Self made. His rivals (Kell Brook) haven't even seen 1/100 of that in the form of a Purse. And Khans ploughing money back into his local community, with his gym(s) and the luxury banqueting venue... great person, and an excellent ambassador for Pakistan and Pakistanis. Lets not forget, his younger brother did represent Pakistan in the commonwealth games after having been rejected by England, and did beat the English guy (Selby) to get a bronze for Pakistan. The love and zeal for greatness for Pakistan may be stronger amongst the likes of Khan (overseas Pakistanis), than even many Pakistanis in Pakistan.
