World Light-Welterweight boxing champion Amir Khan has expreesed his fears that he could be kidnapped in Pakistan while on a visit to his family in that country.

Khan rose to fame as Britain’s only boxing representative at the 2004 Athens Olympics, winning a silver medal at the age of 17 in the lightweight boxing category.

“Amir is determined to visit Pakistan over the summer to see where his family originates from, the Daily Star quoted a close associate of Khan as saying.

The 23-year-old boxer fears he could be targeted for a huge ransom. A source close to him also expressed his deep concern about terrorist groups like Taliban could see it as a major coup to have Khan as a prisoner.

“It would give their cause worldwide coverage because Khan is also very popular in the USA”, he added.

Khan won the WBA World Light-Welterweight World Championship title by defeating Andreas Kotelnik in a unanimous decision over twelve rounds on July 2009. He is also the former Commonwealth lightweight champion, WBO Intercontinental lightweight champion, and WBA International lightweight champion.

Khan/Malignaggi by Chamber of Fear.
16 May, 2010
He virtually walked over Paulie Malignaggi, earning a technical knockout in the 11th round.

Any doubts about Khan being an A-level talent were allayed after a couple of rounds’ display of Khan’s considerable power, hand speed, work rate and beyond-his-years poise. He is now rightly considered a top-level fighter and would be a tough nut to crack for anyone in the 140-pound class.

Referee Steve Smoger had to step in and stop the one-sided fight after seeing Malignaggi being pounded by Khan round after round. The loss effectively ends Malignaggi’s dream of a showdown with Manny Pacquiao.

Afterward, Khan (23-1, 17 KOs) said he’d like to get ‘er done at 140 and deal with Tim Bradley, the WBO crown-holder, or Devon Alexander, who has the WBC and IBF belts.

Khan’s trainer, Freddie Roach, said he’d very much like the WBA junior welterweight champion to meet Argentine Marcos Maidana (28-1, 27 KOs). “Amir wouldn’t lose a round,” Freddie said.

Malignaggi (27-4) said that going into the match he was confident about taking on Khan but eventually Khan came out to be the better man. “I’ve fought two elite fighters, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan,” Malignaggi said. “From here, I’m not sure where I go. I’ll sit down with my team. I don’t want to be a punching bag.”

In  the first round, Khan fought with controlled aggression instilled in him by coach Roach  since the Brit was KO’d in one round by unknown Breidis Prescott two years ago. Khan’s superior power was visible from the first round itself.

In the second round, Khan one-two snapped the New Yorker’s head back. Khan both led, with a long jab, and countered, with crisp left hooks, in a solid round for the champ. Malignaggi’s weapon, his speed was also nothing compared to Khan’s hand speed.

After fighting with great heart for 10 rounds against a more powerful opponent, taking punch after punch, Malignaggi begged the doctor for more time but the referee eventually decided in the 11th round that he was no longer in a condition to fight.
