Boxer Amir Khan removes his father from management team

SAN FRANCISCO: Boxer Amir Khan has finally decided to take some important steps keeping in view the family feud between his wife Faryal Makhdoom and his parents back at home.

Boxer Amir Khan has decided to remove his father, uncle and best friend from his management team as the former light welterweight champion struggles to keep his family and business separate, in the backdrop of family feuds in the past recent months.

In an interview to a British daily, the former two-division champion stated that he had removed his father Shah as his manager, uncle Taz Khan as his consultant and Saj Mohammad, who was the best man at his wedding and his lifelong best friend, from his management team.

"I have had to grow up and take control of my own life," said Amir Khan. "Dad won't be negotiating my contracts any more but I love them and they have been so good for me. But I've matured now and come to realise it is best to keep the two elements of my life apart," he added.

Amir said that he had resumed speaking to his parents once more after the bitter feud between the boxer's wife Faryal Makhdoom and them. Amir revealed that he would be boxing again in April or May and had invited them to watch him fight.
