Amir Khan has revealed he had his watch stolen off him at gun point while out in London with his wife Faryal Makhdoom.
The former light-welterweight world champion said he was out in Leyton, east London, when two men confronted him with the weapon demanding his watch.
Khan added that neither he nor his wife were harmed in the incident.
He tweeted: “Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in east London, Leyton.
“I crossed the road with Faryal, luckily she was a 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.”
The couple have been married since 2013 and have three children together.
In a 2018 interview, Khan opened up on a similarly terrifying incident where he fought off an armed gang trying to steal his £ 100,000 Range Rover in 2012.

“It was really scary because I knew my life was on the line,” he told The Sun at the time.
“When you are in a situation like that you have to react quickly or you are going to get hurt. There were about 20 guys, all with metal bars.
“I remember the first guy swinging this metal stick at my head but luckily he missed. He tried a second time and I countered him. He was out cold.
“Then another guy came at me but I was able to tackle him as well.
“Then the three of us [Amir, his boxer brother Haroon and another man] drove off as fast as we could.
“People might say I was a coward for running away but I am happy I did, because I am still here. Those guys were big and out to hurt me. ”
Khan was last in the ring in February, where he suffered defeat to long-time rival Kell Brook.
Khan suggested this would be final act as a professional boxer, however, it’s since been suggested the Bolton-born fighter could return to action in the future.
