Like the famous Beatles’ song says, all you need is love. In a ceremony at Bolton Wanderers’ Reebok Stadium that cost more than 150,000 pounds, 25 year old boxing sensation Amir Khan was engaged to New York native Faryal Makhdoom in the company of 1,000 of their closest friends and family. Guests included boxer Ricky Hatton and Manchester United star Wayne Rooney.
According to the UK Mail Online, the soon to be Mr. Khan says she does not want to watch her soon to be husband fight, and while he was fighting Lamont Peterson in December, she was back in the hotel room ‘praying with his mother.’
Regarding his bride-to-be, Khan said, “A lot of girls back home have said to me, ‘Your girl is beautiful’ — and that’s great because people can be so jealous. But Faryal is so humble. Anybody who meets her is going to fall in love with her. She’s got no edge, she’s just a terrific person.”
Said Ricky Hatton, “He had a bit of bad luck in his last fight but this will be a nice day and we can have a bit of fun.”
Our best wishes, prayers and congratulations go out to the young couple.
