BOXER Amir Khan has tied the knot with his American bride.

Amir, aged 26, married Faryal Makhdoom, aged 20, at a ceremony in New York last night.

The couple got engaged last year and held a star-studded engagement party in front of 1,000 people at the Reebok Stadium.

They have since had a long-distance relationship, with Faryal being based in New York and Amir in Bolton, but it is thought his new wife will be coming to Bolton to start their life together in Amir’s hometown.

The newlyweds are expected to hold a massive party in Bolton to celebrate their marriage.

Last night, Amir's younger brother Haroon Khan tweeted: "Amazing wedding, a night never to forget. Congrats to my bro @AmirKingKhan and my new sis @FaryalxMakhdoom love you loads."
