Amir Khan says he ’would never allow’ his son to become a boxer: ‘I would never like to see him punched’

Professional boxer Amir Khan has admitted he “would never” allow his newborn son Zaviyar to follow in his footsteps in the future.

The 33 year old father of three exclusively opened up to OK! in a behind the scenes video with wife Faryal Makhdoom about his children’s career choices.

Amir, who is also dad to two daughters Lamaisah and Alayna, revealed he would forbid his son from stepping into the ring, as he has “taken the punches” for his kids.

Speaking in the clip, Amir told us: “As a father, I like to be there for all my kids. I’m going to be very supportive and whatever they want to do I’ll be on their side."

He added: “I’ve been asked by a lot of people would you ever let him go in the boxing ring and fight. Look, I’ve done that for my kids, I’ve taken the punches for them and I would never like to see them punched in the face to be honest with you.

“But, if he wants to box – if Zaviyar says: ‘Look Daddy, I want to go to the boxing gym,’ I cannot stop him I will let him go there and let him pick what he wants to do himself.

“It’s a very tough sport to be in but like I said as a father I like to be there for all my kids. I’m going to be very supportive and whatever they want to do I’ll be on their side.”

Amir, who exclusively told us living in a separate house from his wife has made their relationship “stronger”, shared his pride over having a son.

He told us: “I’m very proud now to have a son, it’s what I’ve always wanted.”

While his wife Faryal added: “Being with the family is the most exciting part of our day.”

Amir then continued: “Having a baby boy was like the icing on the cake, really, it was what I’ve always wanted and it’s completed the family for sure. We’ve got two beautiful girls, now, with a boy, I think that completes my whole family so I’m very happy with that.”

Amir’s wife Faryal gave birth to their third child, a baby boy, in February this year. The professional boxer announced the happy news as he posted a photo of himself holding his newborn son on his Instagram.
