Amir Khan (born December 8, 1986) is a British boxer from Bolton, Greater Manchester, England. He is the IBF inter-continental light welterweight champion and currently ranked #14 in the WBO world lightweight rankings
He went to Devonshire Road Primary School, Smithills High School and Bolton Community College in Bolton. He was a hyperactive child and "a born fighter", according to his father, who encouraged him to take up boxing. His hero is Muhammad Ali.

Khan is a Raja of the Janjua Rajput clan of Pakistan, which has a long and well documented history of warrior kings and a strong martial reputation. He often uses his position as a well-known British Muslim to encourage better relations between British Muslims and the wider community, particularly in his home town of Bolton. He is the younger cousin of cricketer Sajid Mahmood.
Amateur
Khan rose to fame as Britain's sole representative in boxing at the 2004 Athens Olympics, winning a silver medal at the age of 17 in the lightweight boxing category. He was Britain's youngest Olympic boxer since Colin Jones in 1976. He lost in the final to Mario Kindelan, the Cuban who had also beaten him several months earlier in the pre-Olympic match ups in Greece. In 2005 he avenged the two losses by defeating a by-then 34 year old Kindelan in his final amateur fight. This fight was also notable for being the first boxing match ITV had chosen to show live in a decade
Professional
He has incredible hand speed, power, confidence, everything. The kid is going to be a superstar. ”
— Boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard on Amir Khan
Despite declaring after the 2004 Olympics that he would pursue a Gold medal at the 2008 Beijing Olympics, Khan turned professional in 2005, signing with England's leading boxing promoter, Frank Warren. This was fuelled by a row with the English Amateur Boxing Association over the ticketing allocation for his family and friends at the English ABA Finals.

He has won his first twelve professional fights, drawing good reviews in the tabloid press however boxing fans have criticised Khan for repeatedly fighting journeymen from lower weight divisions many with as few as zero knockouts.

Khan fought for the lowly regarded IBF Inter-continental title against French fighter Rachid Drilzane on December 9, 2006, winning a 10 round decision despite the fact titles are usually contested over 12 rounds. Khan experienced the first knockdown of his career, he claimed he got his foot caught in the rope and touched down with his glove, giving the referee no choice but to award his opponent the knock-down. [1] Drilzane had never scored a knockout in his 13 fight career.

Khan has announced his intention to be a World Champion by the time he is 21, by the end of 2007 - comments which have prompted reactions from boxing fans directed towards his promoter to increase the level of his opposition.[citation needed] Khan's life and career to date have already been documented in a book titled Amir Khan: a Boy from Bolton (ISBN 0747587604) and he has even released a DVD of his first nine fights. Also he has been known for reading his prayer before fighting in the ring. On April 7th, he beat Stefy Bull in a three round Technical Knockout in Cardiff.
