Pakistani-origin British boxer Amir Khan, who is currently on a tour to Pakistan said on Thursday that he wants to focus on women boxing in the country.
“We are also considering to focus on women boxing in Pakistan and would arrange training for them,” he said while talking to media on his visit to Amir Khan Boxing Academy.
He further told reporters that he wanted Pakistani boxers to come to England and train there with the coaches. But, the visa problems make it difficult. However, he is hopeful to bring foreign boxing coaches in the country to trainer local pugilists here.
“There is a lot of talent in Pakistan. The Amir Khan Boxing Academy has started producing results as the pugilists being trained here have started to show their class in the domestic circuit,” he said.
He further stated he wants to hold a Super Boxing League in Pakistan.
