Boxing king Amir Khan admits mum still does his laundry


The two-time former world champ revealed how he relies his mother to keep his clothes and kit clean.

Khan has racked up an impressive 29 wins out of 32 fights in his career.

But at the ripe old age of 27, the millionaire fighter unashamedly admits his mother, Falak, still washes his smalls.


Khan married wife Faryal in May last year and the couple have a six-month-old daughter, Lamsya. They live with his parents, brother and sister in an extended house in his native Bolton, while other relatives live just across the street.

The Olympic silver medalist told the Guardian newspaper: We still all eat together most nights, although I’m away a lot, and Mum still does all my washing and keeps my kit in order.”

And Khan also explained he would tuck into a traditional turkey dinner to mark Lamysa’s first Christmas – despite being a Muslim.


"Although we are Muslim, we still celebrate.

"We have a little tree and a turkey dinner with the family.

"It's really important to me that when Lamysa starts school and the other kids talk about what they got for Christmas, she doesn't feel left out.”
