Since Amir’s return from the Athens, he was commonly known as a superstar. According to his agent, Asif Vali, the people’s interest in Amir was phenomenal. Amir has been offered everything, from record deals up to roles in films.But behind every lucrative offer, he does not display even a hint of arrogance and his family still remains their feet on the ground. He is a well-known British Muslim which helps him encourage better relations between British Muslims to wider communities more particularly in his hometown of Bolton.

Khan won the WBA world light welterweight title when he was just 22 years old. This made him the third-youngest champion after Herbie Hide and Naseem Hamed. His record stands at 27 matches fought with 26 victories, 18 via knockout, and 1 loss. So far, Khan is noted as the best Light Welterweight boxer, and noted as the #9 and #10 pound-for-pound best boxer according to Boxrec and Sports Illustrated respectively.
