A flourishing career

Khan began his professional boxing career in 2005 after winning a silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics. He quickly made a name for himself as a lightning-fast, technically skilled fighter with a high knockout rate.

In 2009, he won his first world title, the WBA light-welterweight championship, and successfully defended it several times. Khan suffered his first professional loss in 2011 against Lamont Peterson in a controversial split decision.

He then moved up to the welterweight division, where he faced some of the sport's biggest names, including Canelo Alvarez and there were even plans for fighting Floyd Mayweather Jr., although it never materialized. Despite suffering some tough losses, Khan continued to be a crowd-pleaser and a fierce competitor throughout his career.

In July 2022, Khan announced his retirement from the sport after suffering a defeat against Kell Brook. Khan, who had a successful career as a professional boxer, made the decision to end his career after careful consideration and discussions with his team.

The announcement was met with mixed reactions from fans and fellow boxers, who praised Khan for his achievements in the ring and expressed their sadness at his departure from the sport.

Doping allegations

In April 2023, it was reported that former world champion boxer Amir Khan has been given a two-year ban from the sport. Khan was initially informed of a potential anti-doping violation in 2022, after he was found to have tested positive for a banned substance during an out-of-competition test.

Following a hearing by the National Anti-Doping Panel agency, the decision was made to impose the ban on Khan, who had a professional record of 34 wins and 6 losses.

In response, Khan said:

You can see by my performance against Kell Brook – I lost the fight. If I went in there and knocked Kell Brook out it’s different. If they ban me, they ban me. I am retired anyway.

Monetary achievements

One of the biggest contributors to his earnings was his share of the pay-per-view (PPV) revenue, which was usually around 40% of the total. In fact, it's estimated that Khan earned around $20 million from a single fight, thanks to his share of the PPV revenue.

According to caknowledge.com, Khan has an estimated net worth of £36 million. Khan earned his wealth through his successful career as a professional boxer, with earnings from his fights and endorsement deals contributing significantly to his net worth.
