Amir Khan Makes Big Donation To Pakistan in Coronavirus Battle

Former world champion Amir Khan has continued his battle against the coronavirus.

The boxer has promised to donate Rs40 million (over $534,000) for the welfare of the poor during the lockdown in Pakistan.

Khan has also offered to use his boxing academy in Islamabad as a quarantine center. He added that the quarantined patients need to be kept separately so the gymnasium in his boxing academy will serve the purpose.

“Amir Khan Foundation will make sure to distribute ration and other necessary things among the poor,” said Khan. “I want to help the government of Pakistan as they assist the patients affected by coronavirus."

BoxingScene.com had previously reported that Khan offered his 60,000 square feet wedding venue for use to Britain’s National Health Service, as there are concerns over bed shortages in the UK.

“I am aware of how difficult it is for the public to get a hospital bed in this tragic time. I am prepared to give my 60,000 square foot 4 story building which is due to be a wedding hall and retail outlet to the NHS to help people affected by the coronavirus,” Khan stated.

Khan (34-5, 21 KOs) has been out of the ring since last July, when he easily stopped late replacement Billy Dib in Jeddah. He planned to fight twice in 2020, but due to the ongoing pandemic his plans are on hold until the situation becomes clearer.
