Amir Khan Says He Regrets Accusing Anthony Joshua Of Sleeping With His Wife

Amir Khan admits he lost a friend in Anthony Joshua after accusing him of sleeping with his wife Faryal Makhdoom.

The boxing legend went on a bizarre Twitter outburst in 2017 in which he labelled his wife as a “golddigger” and accused Joshua of sleeping with her.

Kahn claimed he would divorce Makhdoom, writing: “Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I’m not hurt but another fighter.

I’m making it public. You getting the divorce.” Khan didn’t stop there as he welcomed Joshua to have his “leftovers” before later deleting the tweets.

Five years on from the incident and Khan, who retired from boxing after his loss to Kell Brook in February, told The Overlap that he hasn’t spoken with Joshua since. “I was going through a bit of a mad time myself,” he said.

“I wanted to leave my wife. I had the problem with Anthony Joshua which I felt really bad for because at the end of the day I put him in the firing line for no reason. He was a friend of mine and since then we’ve never spoken, so I lost a good friend through that. The guy did nothing wrong and I kind of stuck it on him.”

Joshua denied the allegations by tweeting a video from Shaggy’s infamous song ‘It Wasn’t Me’. Earlier this year, the two-time heavyweight champion was asked if there was any truth to the rumours, to which Joshua jokingly replied: “Honestly I didn’t. With all the accusations around my name, I wish I did”.

Khan got back with his wife Makhdoom several months after the Twitter spat and insisted he was becoming a “bad person” at the time of his Twitter outburst. “I become too selfish. I started making a lot of mistakes,” he added. “I started turning nasty – becoming a bad person really. It was never me and I was never happy with myself doing all this stuff. ‘I was really upset deep down. I was hurt and I was in a very, very bad position at that time.”
