Boxer Amir Khan on Thursday said he would bring international coaches to Pakistan to train the young boxers here.

Talking to media during his visit to Amir Khan Boxing Academy at Pakistan Sports Complex in Islamabad, he said he was grateful to the government for providing a place to him for the academy.

“There is a lot of talent in Pakistan. The Amir Khan Boxing Academy has started producing results as the pugilists being trained here have started to show their class in the domestic circuit,” he said.

He said due to some visa issues boxers from Pakistan remained unable to learn at his boxing facility in the UK, therefore he decided to bring international coaches to polish skills of aspiring boxers in Pakistan.

“We are also considering to focus on women boxing in Pakistan and would arrange training for them,” he said.

Responding to a question, he said his father was in the UK due to some personal commitments.

“A big complex is being set up in Sohawa, while an Orphanage Home is also being built for orphans,” he said. He added that he also wanted to stage a Super Boxing League in Pakistan.
