Amir Khan Watch Stolen
The former Olympic silver medalist and world champion is no stranger to being targetted by theft crime, as previously back in 2012 Khan was attacked by an armed gang outside a Birmingham club in 2012 as they tried to steal his £100,000 Range Rover.
Luckily both Amir and his wife appear to have emerged unharmed from the ordeal, with Khan also stating on his Twitter post:
“The main thing is we’re both safe.”Amir Khan – Twitter
In Saturday’s DAZN show between Conor Benn and Chris van Heerden, Khan was spotted ringside, two months after his previous long-anticipated fight ended in a loss against Kell Brook.
Hopefully, the criminals are caught and brought to justice. Anyone who may have information surrounding the robbery can contact the Metropolitan Police.
