‘I’m not a celebrity – get me on the BACK pages!’: Amir Khan delighted he’s boxing in Britain again
Amir Khan says he wants to be known as a fighter rather than a celebrity because he is “lost without boxing”.
Former world champion Khan is tired of seeing his personal life plastered all over the celebrity press and wants to return to the back pages.
Despite being in reality’s TV I’m A Celebrity… jungle, the 31-year-old insists he is NOT a celebrity and that boxing is still his life.
Khan, who makes his comeback after almost two years out against Phil Lo Greco at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on Saturday, said: “I’m back to what I do best — boxing.
“I belong on the back pages. I’m not a celebrity. I don’t want to live that life.
“Boxing is where I belong, it puts me on the right life path because without it I’m lost and do silly things. Boxing is my life. I’m 31 and want my last few years to be perfect.
