AMIR KHAN has announced his retirement from boxing aged 35.
The British boxing legend, who won Olympic silver at 17-year’s-old, made confirmed the news on Twitter.
Khan posted: “It’s time to hang up my gloves. I feel blessed to have had such an amazing career that has spanned over 27 anos.
“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.”
Khan accompanied the post with pictures from his greatest nights in the ring.
That included wins over Mexican icon Marco Antonio Barrera, Argentine Marcos Madiana and American Devon Alexander.

He became a household name before even turning professional due to his heroics at the 2004 Athens Games.
Having been Team GB’s ONLY boxing representative, he shot to stardom and soon turned professional.
Despite a shock loss to Breidis Prescott in 2008, Khan stormed to his first world title a year later after just 21 lutas.
He beat Andreas Kotelnik at the age of just 22 and added unified belts only two years later.
Beloved for his fast hands and equally exciting style, Khan took on some of the biggest names in world boxing.
