Amir Khan Announces His Retirement From Boxing At 35

 

Amir Khan has brought an end to one of the finest careers in the modern history of British boxing by announcing his retirement at the age of 35.

His decision came almost three months after he was stopped by his great rival Kell Brook and it will be met with relief that he is no longer prepared to take such risks in the ring.
