Boxer Amir Khan fights off thieves trying to steal his Range Rover
A bunch of thieves picked the wrong car to try to steal.
Boxer Amir Khan and his brother, Haroon, who is also a boxer, beat up the blokes who were trying to steal his expensive SUV.
The brothers were in Birmingham, England, for a gig and returning to their car after a night out on Sunday when they were confronted by at least six thieves.
Here’s how an onlooker described the scene to The Sun:
“They parked their car in front of the Range Rover. At least one had a cosh. One slapped Amir and clipped him on the lip but Amir pulled back and knocked him out cold. Then five of them went for Amir and Haroon — but they stood their ground and these guys got dropped one by one.”
We’ve seen this sort of thing with professional fighters defeating thieves numerous times in the past, and it never gets old.
Khan is 26-3 and set to face Carlos Molina Dec. 15 in Los Angeles. This will be his first fight since he dumped Freddie Roach as his trainer. At least he got in a nice sparring session for practice.
