Amir Khan on Meet the Khans

Viewers of Meet the Khans: Big in Bolton are introduced to 34-year-old Amir, two-time world boxing champion and his 29-year-old New Yorker wife, Faryal.

Being welcomed into the world of the Khan’s is an eye-opener for anyone watching the BBC show as lavish cars, luxury homes and designer clothes are a normality. It doesn’t look to have come easy, though, as Amir said that he had to work hard for everything he’s got growing up in Bolton.

The boxer looks to be pretty transparent about money on the show. He started a wedding hall business and divulged that it was meant to cost him £3.2m but it has actually cost him over £11m to date.

Amir said that his dad suggested the wedding hall idea to keep him busy once he retired. Five years into building it, Amir said the glass alone cost £1.5m. Amir said: “It hurts you knowing how much money has gone to waste. Literally, £5m’s gone missing, I don’t know where it’s gone“.
