A GANG of armed men took an alleged beating when they tried to steal Amir Khan’s £100,000 Range Rover.

At least six men used a 4x4 to block the path of the Bolton boxer and his brother Haroon as they returned to the car between midnight and 1am on Monday in Birmingham.

Amir and Haroon, a soon to be a pro-boxer, reportedly fought back after they were attacked on the way back to the car in Adelaide Street.

A witness to the incident told a national newspaper: “One of the men slapped Amir and clipped him on the lip, but Amir pulled back and knocked him out cold.

“Then five of them went for Amir and Haroon, but they stood their ground and these guys got dropped one by one.”

The pair had travelled to Birmingham from Bolton for a concert at the NIA stadium.

Police confirmed they had been called out following reports of a fight, but said that nobody had come forward.

A spokesman said: “Police were called to Adelaide Street, at about 1.20am on October 8 to a report of a fight taking place.

“Officers arrived within minutes but found no sign of any disorder and received no reports of any offences having been committed.

“Police left the scene a short time later.”

The Khan brothers and family refused to comment on the incident.
