British Pakistani Boxer Gets Dream Debut


It took Amir Khan just one minute 39 seconds to underline what we already knew, that he is the most exciting talent to arrive in British boxing for years. Here in an area of the country where the Muslim way of life is woven tightly into the culture, a group of Asian Khan fans carried a huge flag, fusing the colours of Great Britain and Pakistan. “Khan’s Army” wanted it known they were first and foremost sports fans. His victory, he said, was dedicated to everyone affected by the bomb blasts in the capital on July 7.
