Amir Khan sacks his dad and uncle from management team after bitter family feud

Amir Khan has sacked his father, uncle and best mate from his management team after a bitter feud involving his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, and the rest of the family.


His manager dad Shah, consultant uncle Taz and lifelong pal Saj Mohammed who worked as his assistant will no longer help manage his career.

The Olympic silver medallist and former world light-welterweight champion has made the decision after a bust-up involving his wife Faryal Makhdoom, who faced criticism from his family members.

Shah has been in his son’s corner throughout his amateur and professional career, famously donning a Union Jack waistcoat at Athens 2004.

The Bolton boxer told Mirror Online: “My dad is not going to be negotiating fights.

“I love my family to bits, but my business is boxing and I’ll have a different team to do that.

“My dad, my mum, I respect them. I want a family relationship with them rather than a business relationship. They’ll be at my next fight, hopefully. I will invite them.

“When you mix the two it can get a bit difficult. That’s why I want to keep them separate.”

Khan was knocked out in his last fight after moving up divisions to face Mexican middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez.

Since then his New York-born wife Faryal has had a very public social media spat with his relatives, and an embarrassing old sex tape leaked in public.

Now Khan wants a comeback fight in the UK in May before a possible long-awaited clash with IBF champ and bitter domestic rival Kell Brook
