Khan Offers Use of His Wedding Venue in The Battle Against COVID-19

Former world champion Amir Khan has joined the fight, as many struggle in the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Khan has pledged to give his £5 million wedding venue in Bolton to the NHS to help those affected by COVID-19.

The 33-year-old said he is prepared to offer up the four-story, 60,000 square foot building, as he is “aware of how difficult it is for the public to get a hospital bed at this time”.

Khan was going to turn the building would be turned into a wedding venue, banqueting suite and function hall. The development will incorporate a restaurant and bar, VIP restaurant and roof terrace.

“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 @NHSuk to help people affected by the coronavirus," Khan said.

At least 146 cases of coronavirus have been confirmed in Greater Manchester, with at least 23 deaths.

Khan has been out of the ring since July of 2019, when he easily stopped late replacement Billy Dib. The Bolton boxer has been discussing the idea of fighting in the fall in a stay-busy fight and then going into a major encounter, but now with the coronavirus it's unknown when Khan can finally hit the ring.
