Pakistan PM Imran Khan To Watch India-Pakistan Boxing Match in Saudi Arabia

British boxer Amir Khan has stated that Pakistan PM Imran Khan will attend his fight against India’s Neeraj Goyat at King Abdullah Sports City in Jeddah on July 12. Amir Khan is a British boxer but originally hails from Pakistan and many netizens have dubbed it as India-Pakistan boxing match.

“The prime minister of Pakistan will be attending which is huge. It would be amazing if we can get the Prime Minister of England as well. I’m a British Pakistani and it’s great to have that backing from Pakistan,” Khan told reporters in London on Thursday.

The former unified world welterweight champion insisted he doesn’t regret agreeing to fight in Saudi Arabia despite concerns over human rights in the country. Amnesty has described the Saudi human rights record as “abysmal”, adding that the nation is in the “grip of a sweeping crackdown against critics of the government”, and urged Khan to travel there with his “eyes firmly open”.

Khan’s pay for the fight is £3 million more than he earned against Crawford and he conceded that was a major consideration in his decision. “They are throwing a lot of money on to the table, and at the end of the day, we are prizefighters. For me, I would be stupid to not take this opportunity,” he said.

“I didn’t get involved in the negotiation side. If they told me to fight on the moon. I’m one of those who will fight wherever. “The offer came on to the desk and we took a look at it. It makes sense for me, especially because I want a quick turnaround between fights.”
