Boxing news: Amir Khan reveals he’s made £60million from boxing career so far

Amir Khan has claimed that he’s made around £60million from his boxing career to date.

The former unified world champion is approaching his 33rd birthday in December and admits his time in the sport is likely winding down.

However, Khan insists this is no disaster for him financially, as he has maximised his earning potential throughout his career.

Khan told World Boxing News: “I’ve seen the mistakes boxers have made when they’re making millions and become broke.

“I never want to be in that position where I ever have to work again or chase money or chase another big fight again.

“Firstly, I’m in a position where in this game of boxing I’ve walked away with about £60million already. I’ve made a lot of money in the game.

“I want to make sure I invest it for my family, for my future. God forbid anything happens to me tomorrow, me or my family is going to be safe.”

Khan will likely look to secure at least one final big payday, potentially against domestic rival Kell Brook, before quitting the sport for good.
