AMIR Khan has revealed his ambitions of getting involved in politics in Pakistan in order to “do his bit”.

Bolton’s former unified world champion held his first boxing show in Islamabad earlier this month with plans to return in December.

Khan compared his possible career move to that of Manny Pacquiao, his former training partner who has moved into politics in the Philippines at the tail end of his ring career. In a series of tweets, the Olympic silver medallist said: “I have been asked numerous times if I would join politics in Pakistan.

“Being a sports man and being an ambassador for the country, I’m honoured to asked if I would take part in politics, in fact I would love to help the country.

“I would love to make Pakistan a better place and be a massive help in many areas.

“Be it sport, education, stopping child labour and many more things.

“We will all leave this world one day, but whilst we still around we all should do our bit.

“I’ve sat with many politicians and army generals agreeing and disagreeing on topics in the country.

“My heart is clean and I would want the best for Pakistan.

“Lets see how things play out. My old stable mate world champion boxer Manny Pacquiao also joined politics in Philippines.

“I have been watching the great work he has done for his country and I know I could do the same for Pakistan.

“It will be a massive decision to make. I one day might consider this.”

Khan then asked his Twitter followers what they thought of his plans to enter to world of politics.

Khan is exploring all his options for the next stage of his career having also recently been announced as president of the World Boxing Council’s Middle East division.

He also continues his charity work with the Amir Khan Foundation.

In terms of in the ring, Khan has not fought since stopping Billy Dib in Saudi Arabia back in July 2019 but has not formally called it a day just yet.

Long-time potential opponent Kell Brook has been confirmed to face Terence Crawford next month, Khan having lost to the American in April 2019.
