AMIR Khan’s wedding to bride-to-be Faryal Makhdoom will take place within weeks.

Miss Makhdoom, an American Pakistani student, who lives in New York, revealed the couple’s wedding date to her 52,000 Twitter fans yesterday.

She posted that May 31 this year was the date set for the couple’s New York City wedding.

Boxer Amir, aged 26, pictured, popped the question to his girlfriend in January last year and gave her a £100,000 diamond engagement ring. To celebrate the occasion the couple held a star-studded party at the Reebok Stadium and invited about 1,000 friends, family and sporting celebrities including former boxer Ricky Hatton, Bolton Wanderers’ player Kevin Davies and Amir’s cousin, England cricketer Sajid Mahmood.

The party had a red and white theme and the couple had a seven tier engagement cake. Security at the event was tight. Guests were asked to hand in phones and cameras before entering.
