Amir Khan is a well known boxer from Bolton, Lancashire in the UK; he became popular after winning the Olympic silver medal at the 2004 Games held in Athens in the lightweight boxing category. His achievement was all the more creditable as he was only 17 years old at the time; Khan turned professional in 2005 and till date he has fought ten fights and sports an undefeated record winning as many as eight fights by knockout.

Amir Khan is of South Asian origin and of royal lineage, a descendant of the Janjua Rajput clan which was especially noted for its war like nature. According to his father Khan was born gifted from childhood and was a natural fighter with quick reflexes along with an athletic and robust constitution; he was a hyperactive child who was always on the lookout to display his talents and idolized the legendary boxer, Muhammad Ali. He took to boxing at the age of eight starting at the Haliwell Boxing Club before moving on to Bury Amateur Boxing Club and has never looked back since.
