At 22, Khan clinched the WBA title and remained victorious for three consecutive years. His slew of victories earned him the title ‘King Khan’ by adoring worldwide fans.
In 2015, Khan received an honorary degree in recognition of his contributions to sport and philanthropy.
Khan was appointed President of the WBC Middle East in late 2020, a role which will see Khan extend and develop boxing in the region.
