Amir Khan was subject of an armed robbery on Monday night in London
On Monday night, British Boxing Legend Amir Khan took too Twitter to reveal he had his luxury watch stolen at gun point in London, with wife Faryal Makhdoom just feet away.
Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in East London, Leyton. I crossed the road with Faryal, luckily she was few steps behind me. 2 men ran to me, he asked for my watch whist having a gun pointed in my face. The main thing is we’re both safe.— Amir Khan (@amirkingkhan) April 18, 2022
Khan opened up to TMZ to document the events of that night, stating that it was the 'first time I had a gun pointed in my face.'
Khan explained his shock, considering the strict UK laws "In the UK, I mean the law is quite strong where hardly anyone, even the police, don't really carry guns, So, it was quite shocking to see a gun pointed at me. And you could see that they were young. They seemed a bit nervous, and he kept saying to me, 'take off your watch.'"
Khan continued by stating: "Someone must've recognized that watch. I was wearing a really expensive watch which is worth like maybe $100,000. I think that news must've traveled a little bit. So, I do think that somehow it was set up. Maybe the news just went to the wrong people, and they knew I had a watch there."
Khan confirmed that an investigation is open: "The last time I spoke to them was obviously after the interview I had and they said that they saw where the car went, and they've got the car in that radius -- they've got the cameras around that car."
Khan went on to question his safety in the English capital: "I don't feel safe. I'm in the city London which is obviously a very well known town and everyone loves London. Now, after I was robbed, you start hearing all the stories or you start reading up on all the robberies that have happened. I mean, it's quite regularly happening," Khan says.
"I need the prime minster, the MP member of Parliament and also the Mayor of London -- what are these people doing?! They need to improve security and maybe get more police forces out or do something about this because it's not a safe place to live."
