Amir Khan Looks To Establish Boxing School in Pakistan
Share Click Here To Email Printable version Search BoxingScene Database 

Amir Khan is proposing the idea of establishing a university of fisticuff excellence in Pakistan - the country of his ancestors.

The aim is to discover, nurture and develop boxing talent to elevate the sport to the world level in this "Kings' College."

It will involve Amir visiting Pakistan to see for himself and to plan accordingly. The next step is for the Government of Pakistan to offer a piece of land where the facility can be built.

Another initial stage of this overall development plan is to offer the facilities and services of his gym in Bolton, free for Pakistan's Amateur Boxing Team for their preparations to compete in the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow next year.

Amir extended the same hand of friendship to Pakistan's Boxing Federation in the run up to the London Olympic Games.

There's boxing talent to be found everywhere. You dont have to look any further than Ruslan Provodnikov who is from a remote village in Siberia or Pacquiao/Donaire both from the same rural area in the Philippines.

There's definitely untapped talent in Pakistan, but like everything else, it'll take decades for them to put half decent system together - and even more years for them to get up to speed. The Northern areas, Afghan and Kashmiri borders, have some very raw, tough people. They're raised in extrem...
