When not knocking out rivals in 39 seconds, British boxing star Amir Khan likes to play an entrepreneur, taking boxing and other combat sports to uncharted but exciting waters.
Two years after giving Pakistan its first taste of international boxing, Khan has now announced that he is bringing a team-based boxing league to the old country.
“I’m bringing Super Boxing League [to Pakistan] this year and it will show the next generation of boxers,” Khan said in a video.
“It’s going to be a month-long tournament; it will be really amazing and I’m looking forward to watching the talent of Pakistan. This is going to be big time. I really believe we have a huge amount of talent but no one has ever pointed it. Hopefully, 2018 is going to be a big year for Pakistani boxing.”
