Amir Khan has revealed plans to quit boxing after he turns 28.
Khan, 25, told Esquire magazine, ‘I’m not even at my peak yet. I’m already a two-time world champion, winning it again is not a problem.’
But he added: ‘By 28 I’ll have done everything I want in boxing and I can sit back, chill and get fat.’
Amir got engaged to 20-year-old New York student Faryal Makhdoom last month and says he doesn’t want his kids to become boxers, but would rather seem them become footballers!
‘They can train, but I wouldn’t want them to go into a fight. I don’t know how my parents do it and, actually, my mum can’t do it anymore.
‘My kids can be football players instead.’ he said.
