Boxer Amir Khan meets top Bollywood actress in Mumbai

MUMBAI: jacqBritish boxer Amir Khan is in Mumbai these days to promote the franchise-based Super Boxing League, and his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, is also accompanying him on the visit.

25-year-old Makhdoom had in a recent interview to Indian media website said that she has fallen in love with Ranveer Singh, after seeing him in Bajirao Mastani.

She had joked that “when Amir is asleep one night, I’ll sneak out go to his house to meet.”

Well, Amir isn’t waiting for his wife to sleep to meet Bollywood beauties. On Wednesday, he was at the DY Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai for the Justin Bieber concert and met up Jacqueline Fernandez.

 

Jacqueline Fernandez is the brand ambassador of Goa Pirates in the Super Fight League (SFL), the world’s leading mixed martial arts (MMA) league. Her brothers Ryan and Warren Fernandez are co-owners of the team.

Along with Jacqueline, SFL’s teams have other movie actors like Ajay Devgn and Tiger Shroff as brand ambassadors.

Amir is among the top-3 boxers in the world in welterweight division and plans on bringing his expertise to India with his new initiative — the Super Boxing League (SBL).

With his promoter Bill Dosanjh — both of whom will co-own the league — Amir hopes to give young Indian boxers a platform.

“We are looking for the next big superstar in India,” Amir said of SBL.

However, with the International Boxing Association (AIBA) and the Boxing Federation of India (BFI) withdrawing support, fighters participating in the tournament would lose their amateur status and eligibility to represent India at the Olympics.

But Amir does not see it as a negative.

“We are giving an opportunity to the fighters at grassroots level. They could be good, medium or bad.

“The Olympics don’t give you an opportunity; you have to be good to go to the Olympics (because only a few fighters qualify).

“Nowadays, there are a lot of fighters who never make it to the Olympics but are still capable of becoming world champions in the professional circuit.
