It’s time to hang up my gloves.
I feel blessed to have had such an amazing career that has spanned over 27 years.
I want to say a heartfelt thanks and to the incredible teams I have worked with and to my family, friends and fans for the love and support they have shown me.
I have pledged £50,000 for England, Palestine, Pakistan, Syria, India, Lebanon and Afghanistan
Please donate as much as you can in these last 10 days of Ramadan.
May allah accept all our efforts. Ameen
Such inspiring words from the heavyweight world champion @Tyson_Fury. Humble n respectful, that’s why we love him. He’s been down and boxed his way back to the top, becoming a legend in the sport. Well done champ, enjoy time with the family. 🥊
'It's the first time I've seen a gun in the UK. For someone to have that on the streets, just makes it so unsafe.'
@amirkingkhan and his wife Faryal Makhdoom had a terrifying experience after two thieves stole the boxer’s £72,000 luxury watch at gunpoint.
'I do feel very unsafe walking around London, England because it is very dangerous out there.'
@amirkingkhan blames London Mayor Sadiq Khan for London's crime levels after being robbed at gunpoint and says he feels 'unsafe' in London.
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.
IT’S VERY UPSETTING TO SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING IN PALESTINE, WHO ARE BEING CONSISTENTLY ABUSED & TORMENTED. MY PRAYERS ARE WITH THE PEOPLE OF PALESTINE. THEREFORE I AM PLEDGING £50.000 TOWARDS THE CAUSE & ENCOURAGE EVERYONE TO GET BEHIND THIS CAMPAIGN #PrayforPalestine 🇵�9r
