Amir Khan: I Embarrassed Myself By Making Joshua Accusation

Former world champion Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) admits he embarrassed himself by making public allegations on social medial that his wife Faryal had cheated on him with IBF, IBO, WBA heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Khan and his wife were fighting with each other, mostly on social media, for several months. Khan was very firm that he was looking for a divorce and wanted to move on with his life.

Less than a week ago the pair reconciled, with Faryal four months pregnant with their second child.

Khan now realizes it was a big mistake to take all of the drama to social media.

“I think if you look at the whole situation, it was all just silly, starting with the texts, then when I accused her of messaging Joshua, it was all just nonsense really from the start. And then when we sat down and thought ‘Look, we’ve got a family’. Also she’s expecting so we have to think for the kids. In life you have to forgive. We have to move forward and move on from things like that," Khan told The Mirror.

“That’s part of life. You always make mistakes and it’s about coming through them and not making them mistakes again. I made a few silly mistakes. I did put my life on social media, I assumed things which were wrong. So I kind of embarrassed myself.”

Khan headed to Australia to be part of a reality show where the boxer will have to survive in the jungle with other contestants.

“I’m still a boxer, I’m training but there’s no fights on. So I thought, ‘I’ve got time to do this show, so why not?’ I’m only going to be away from training and home a few weeks. I’ll use it as a detox at the same time," Khan said.

“Being a father makes you realise in life you’ve got commitments. Everything you’re doing, you’re doing it for your family. It’s definitely going to change me again and make me work hard in my sport. I’ve been out of the ring over a year now so this is only going to give me more motivation to shine again.”

Khan has been out of the ring since May of 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds to challenge Canelo Alvarez for the WBC middleweight title. Khan was knocked out in the sixth round in brutal fashion.

The boy brain has to be like scrambled eggs or something. Falsely accuse a guy with heavy hands and you having the chin of a baby with the soft spot still in the middle just shows this dude is incompetent…
