Amir Khan Details His Decision To Offer Building To Help NHS in Coronavirus Battle

As BoxingScene.com previously reported, former world champion Amir Khan has offered to lend his 60,000 square foot building in Bolton to the NHS to help them in the fight with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

He believes they can fit as a many as 4,000 beds in the building for those need.

More than 500,000 worldwide have been infected with the COVID-19 virus, more than 21,000 have died.

"So basically I have a 60,000 square foot building which I’m going to make into a mall and also a banqueting hall for weddings and conferences. It’s in the town centre of Bolton. I decided before they start working on the inside, I don’t mind giving that to the NHS to say ‘look, come and use the building’. That way it can help all the victims who have the coronavirus because I see and I’ve read that hospitals are now sending people away," Khan explained to TalkSport. 

"There are a lot of people that need help. There are not enough beds, so I’m happy to give my building. You’ll get around 3,000, 4,000 beds in there that could help. My team is speaking to the local NHS and hopefully we will get a verdict in the next couple of days.

“But it’s gone out there that I’m willing to help. It started on my social media, my Twitter. I decided to send the message out to say I’d like to help and do my little bit. The reason I want to do this is because that way we keep the victims who have the virus in that one building, instead of it spreading out, because it’s easy to spread. Before it gets worse, let me at least help the community as much as I can.”

Khan has been out of the ring since July of 2019, when he stopped late replacement Billy Dibb. He was planning to fight at least two times in 2020, but that scenario could be affected by the pandemic, as all boxing events have been canceled until May.
