    Default Amir Khan

    While I always thought Amir Khan had the heart of a lion and dazzling talent, I also thought he was a bit of a knob.

    But he went massively up in my estimation when he faced up to the press after being butchered by Brook, and he was funny, gracious and engaging.

    He also was asked about whether he was proud about inspiring Asian sportsmen around the world

    People used to say: ‘We are Muslim, we are Asian, we can’t make it in boxing. We’re not going to be picked.’ It’s an excuse that all Asians use – that we’re never going to be picked.“Look at football, for example. There are no Asian footballers but guess what they all say? ‘We won’t get picked because we’re Asian.’ I think that’s a fucking load of bullshit, really. It’s a load of bollocks. Asians, when we can’t to a certain extent, give up. We don’t have it in us. Our diet is appalling, and when we come up against good English fighters, they are fitter and have a better diet”!

    Say it how you see it Amir
    If God wanted us to be vegetarians, why are animals made of meat ?

    Still think he is a bit of a knob.

    Me too. Knob alert.

    Had most of the tools to be a superstar but a poor chin, and more importantly a limited boxing brain, went against him.

    Made a fucking mint though so what do I know.....

    PRINCE Naseem Hamed has been living up to his royal name after moving in next to the Queen.

    The former World Featherweight Boxing champ was out walking his dog on the Queen’s Long Walk, near his new home in Windsor.

    Naseem, who retired in 2002 aged 28, is now living a lavish lifestyle.

    The boxer is renting a £1.4m townhouse which backs on to Windsor Castle and driving a £120k Corvette Stingray supercar.

    The International Boxing Hall of Fame inductee, now 48, retired with 36 wins to just one loss.

    It’s not the first time he has been spotted around the Berkshire town.


    Last week the Sheffield-born star was spotted out on a shopping trip.

    One onlooker joked: “He was one of the best entertainers in boxing, but he doesn’t look like a featherweight anymore!”

    Another said: “Boxing royalty living next door to proper royalty."
