Amir Khan, the former world light-welterweight champion, has revealed that he was robbed at gunpoint in East London, while he was out with his wife Faryal Makhdoom. The assailants took Khan’s watch, while Faryal was a few steps behind him.

Amir shared the incident on Twitter: “Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in East London, Leyton. I crossed the road with Faryal, luckily she was few steps behind me. 2 men ran to me, he asked for my watch whist having a gun pointed in my face. The main thing is we’re both safe,” he added. 

This is not the first time Amir Khan and Faryal have found themselves in such a situation. In 2018, the couple was attacked by a group of 20 men, armed with metal sticks and other weapons. They were trying to rob his £100k Range Rover. They managed to get away safely.

“I remember the first guy swinging this metal stick at my head but luckily he missed. He tried a second time and I countered him. He was out cold. Then another guy came at me but I was able to tackle him as well,” recalled the boxer.

Earlier this year, Amir lost to his arch-rival Kell Brook in Manchester and hasn’t played a match since then.
