Frank Warren Backs Amir Khan

Amir Khan's promoter Frank Warren has come out in defence of the young star following comments made by a deported cleric in today's Sun. " Like any decent person in this country, I am shocked and annoyed by the comments directed at Amir," said Warren. " Amir is the face of modern multi-cultural Britain and, as a premier sportsman, the young generation look up to him as a role model.."

" He likes to keep his religion private and personal but I know that he is extremely proud to be British and represent his country in the boxing ring and he is equally as proud of his Pakistani heritage,"

He added: "Not only has he achieved great success as boxer but he has done so much outside the ring for his local community. Only recently he set up a community centre/boxing gym to help get kids of the streets and focus their energy into sport."

" At the moment Amir is deeply focused on his forthcoming world title eliminator against Martin Kristjansen a week on Saturday and will not let anything distract him from winning that fight."
