Amir Khan claims he has healed the rift with his parents after realising “one punch in boxing can change your life”. The family publicly fell out as the gloves came off between his wife, Faryal Makhdoom, and her in-laws.
“We said, ‘Fine, carry on with it’. We’ve taken a step back. ‘But I don’t know why he stopped talking to us. I have no idea. “They say that I’ve robbed him – they’ve turned him against us.”
In 2017 Bolton-born Amir and American Faryal almost split. They reconciled when she revealed she was expecting their second child. Amir also accused her of cheating with Anthony Joshua, which both she and the former world heavyweight champion denied. Faryal fired back saying her husband was “bad around women”.
