Amir Khan has revealed he will never get back in the ring after bouts of injuries from years in the industry.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Amir confessed he was through with boxing, admitting he had made enough money to live his life comfortably with his family and intended to do so.

His interview comes as rumours surfaced that the Bolton legend was ready to fight Floyd Mayweather but Amir is now ready to lay his career to rest.

He told talkSPORT: “I’m done with the sport.

“In the last fight, when I was in camp it’s like I knew I  lost the love for the sport.

“I was training just to get fit, just to give the British fans this fight.

“It wasn’t me even when I was walking to the ring, normally I’d be nervous, I’d be excited but I had nothing.”

Cousin of Amir Khan set to have first fight in Bolton

Amir suffered a crushing defeat in February this year when he fought against Kell Brook in Manchester.

He said: “I wake up now and my back is gone and I’ve always got injuries here and there.

“I’ve done well financially, and I’ve made enough money to live the rest of life happy and see my kids grow up.”

Amir has now thrown his support behind fast growing boxer and cousin Abdul Khan, who fights this weekend in Bolton.

Abdul is often referred to as the next 'King Khan' as he takes over from Amir and follows in his footsteps to join the boxing great in the ring.

After winning on Amir's undercard in Manchester, the same night Amir lost to Kell Brook, his career is off to a promising start with Amir managing him.

The Bolton boxer has recently bought a house in Manchester, giving up the family dream to live in London after his £1000k watch was stolen. 

Khan’s professional boxing record stands at 40 fights of which he has won 34 and lost just six.

Now,  along with wife Faryal and their three children, the family split their time between Manchester and Dubai, where they have also taken up residence.
