Boxing Sensation Amir Khan Comes To Childsplay Clothing

Friday 5 September, 2014
Renowned boxing sensation and champion Amir Khan will be returning to the UK this weekend after taking a well-deserved family holiday to Miami with wife, Faryal Makhdoom Khan 22, and  3 month old daughter, Lamaisah. Amir Khan will be spending quality time with his family whilst in the UK, and we hear shopping is on the top of his list. On the agenda for his short stay is a visit to Childsplay Clothing the UK’s leading retailer of luxury childrenswear. They will be welcoming the former two time world champion, aged 27 with his family on Sunday 7 th September, before the Olympic boxing medallist jets off to the United States. The most sought after labels in the fashion industry such as Armani, Burberry, Dolce & Gabbana, Fendi and Roberto Cavalli are set to make their way into little Lamaisah’s AW14 wardrobe. Established for over 20 years, Childsplay Clothing is globally recognised and is one of the world’s leading retailers of children’s designer clothing. Stocking hundreds of classic designer brands; with fresh labels added to the selection every season.  Childsplay Clothing continues to grow, develop and soar. Khan’s first stop when he hits the States will be Las Vegas to watch the Floyd Mayweather and Marcos Maidana rematch which is taking place the following weekend at the MGM Grand Arena. Everyone is interested in what next is on the cards for Khan and there has been plenty of speculation over the past couple of years regarding potential fights. The most talked about being a super-fight between Khan and the unbeaten Mayweather, widely recognised as ‘pound for pound’ the best fighter in the world. This would delight fans and Mayweather has spurred on hopes by recently stating "If you ask me will the fight happen, then I would say yes”. However with Sheffield boxer Kell Brook recently capturing the IBF World Welterweight title, talk is growing that this could potentially lead to another blockbuster domestic dust-up and daring showdown at Wembley next year following on from the huge success of the Froch v Groves re-match in May earlier this year. More interesting are the thoughts of Khan himself and his opinions on potential future opponents. Khan’s comment - “Mayweather would be a very technical fight, like a game of chess. But I think Manny Pacquiao would be harder. He's much more aggressive and it would be more intense” - suggests that though Mayweather would be an intriguing opponent, Pacquiao would be more challenging. Further comments from  Amir Khan  confirms his eagerness to fight the Filipino - “I’m ready to fight wherever, whether it’s in Vegas, Macau or Dubai”. While Amir khan awaits Mayweather he will be going into training camp with trainer Virgil Hunter in San Francisco to prepare for a fight on 6 th December against an as of yet unnamed opponent.
