Amir Khan win against Zab Judah

Khan was born and raised in Bolton, England, in a British Pakistani family. His family originated from Matore, Kahuta in Rawalpindi, Punjab, Pakistan. As well as speaking English, Khan also speaks Punjabi and Urdu. His first cousin is the English cricketer Sajid Mahmood. Khan is a practicing Muslim.
Currently, Khan is rated as the best boxer in the Light Welterweight division, above Timothy Bradley; who holds the other two major titles in the division. After the 2005 Kashmir earthquake, Khan went to Pakistan and handed out food parcels to children in a camp.
In the immediate aftermath of his thrilling weekend win over Zab Judah, Amir Khan made public his ambition to one day be regarded as the best 'pound-for-pound' fighter on the planet. His friend and Wild Card gym mate Manny Pacquiao is universally regarded as the current 'P4P' king, but Khan did his long-term prospects no harm at all after a truly masterful display at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas.
High aims
"My aim is to move up the pound-for-pound rankings and one day be pound-for-pound champion. I want to be the best fighter in the world," a clearly elated Khan beamed afterwards.
