Amir Khan, the two-time World Pro Boxing Champion, has decided to retire from the sport on Friday.
Amir, who won an Olympic silver medal before turning professional, has now ended a 27-year career.
Amir, the former unified welterweight world champion, announced his retirement on Twitter.
“It’s time to hang up my gloves. I feel blessed to have had such an amazing career that has spanned over 27 years,” he wrote.
“I want to say a heartfelt thanks and to the incredible teams I have worked with and to my family, friends and fans for the love and support they have shown me,” he added.
Amir recently fought Kell Brook in February of this year to end a ten-year feud. Khan, on the other hand, was beaten soundly by Brook, who also retired from professional boxing last week.
