Former WBA junior welterweight champion Amir Khan made a formal annoucement of his engagement to New York native Faryl Makhdoom last night at a private engagement party in Bolton, England’s Reebok Stadium.
Attended by roughly 1,000 of the couples closest friends and relatives, the couple exchanged rings and took pictures for gathered media.
The 20-year old Makhdoom is still in college but plans to relocated to Khan’s Bolton hometown this year.
Khan is hopeful to get back the ring this spring against Lamont Peterson, who defeated him by split decision last month. While supportive of his career, Makhdoom has vowed never to watch her future husband fight live.
