Amir Khan – His Story So Far

Amir KhanIn a period where British sport has rarely been able to climb to the top of the pile, young Bolton based boxer Amir Khan has come as a breath of fresh air.  Brash, confident, skilful, opinionated and above all a winner, the UK population have taken Khan to their hearts.  But what is the real story about the young boxer from Bolton?

This intriguing insight into Amir Khan’s life shows the highs and lows of his sporting life, his personal life and his standing with both the local and UK wide population.  The program charts his rise up the rankings, from his silver medal in the 2004 Olympic games, to his first professional title – the Commonwealth Lightweight belt, taken from Willie Limond – and his search for that shot at a world title. 

One of the interesting things about Khan is his ability and willingness to bring together the UK Muslim and non-Muslim population, something which he feels very strongly about.  He is already well known for his willingness to help and assist other young fighters who look up to him, even though he is still only 20 years old himself.  Khan is from a very strong and close family background, with a number of his cousins well known in the sporting world.

While best known for his boxing abilities, Amir Khan has also become involved in a number of children’s campaigns in and around the Bolton region, where he is able to use his new found status to highlight child safety and behavioural issues.  He has put himself forward as a role model and many younger children have taken notice of what he has done with his life.

Amir Khan is a young man who has the boxing skills to go to the very top, but a humility which is rarely seen in sportsmen these days.  Ever willing to assist his local community, its seems that the boxer from Bolton has a glittering career ahead of him.
