London, Mar 18 (ANI): Amir Khan has said that his fiance Faryal Makhdoom is "looking forward" to seeing him hang up his gloves.
The boxer got engaged to the 20-year-old New Yorker recently in Bolton.
"I think Faryal and my mum are looking forward to me retiring. They say I have achieved what I set out to do and that is become world champion. So why carry on?" the Sun quoted him as saying.
"But then the thing with fighters is that we get a little bit greedy. I want to become pound-for-pound champion, I want to be the best fighter in the world," he said.
Khan also added that Makhdoom never watches his bouts, as she cannot see him getting hurt.
"Faryal didn't watch the fight against Peterson in December. She stayed at the hotel with my mum but neither of them watched the bout on TV at the time.
"You get cuts and bruises boxing. That goes with my job as a boxer but she didn't want to see me get hurt. But Faryal understands boxing is a big part of me because I have been doing it virtually all my life. She has to accept it," he added.
The Bolton boxer joked that he doesn't think she is worried about him losing his good looks because "they went a long time ago!"
He has shown his wife-to-be around Bolton and insists it will remain his Lancashire hometown.
"I am not moving to the United States. I would not want to spend all my time there," he said.
"Faryal will have to get used to Bolton, she can understand my accent now!
"I know she would not want to be away from her family all the time so I expect we will be doing a lot of to-ing and fro-ing between here and New York because she doesn't want to be away from her family and friends... She likes Bolton anyway," he added. (ANI)
