British Boxer Quotes
I'm born in Britain – but my family were born in Pakistan. When I fight, in the crowd you see Pakistani people and you see British people – they're all mixed together and they support Amir Khan. On my shorts, when I fight, I have the Pakistani flag on one side and on the other side I have the Britain flag – to promote the two countries together.
It's all about discipline - and having an inner calm. That's one of the main driving forces for me when I step into the ring - you can't have a fight and lose your temper.

I did some research to make sure I could still obtain enough protein to fight and, once satisfied that I could, I stopped [eating animal products]. I'll never go back.
