The 34-year-old, nicknamed the ‘King’ first began boxing at the age of 11 and qualified for the 2004 summer Olympics by finishing in first place at the 1st AIBA European 2004 Olympic Qualifying tournament.

He went on to win the silver medal at the age of 17 in the lightweight boxing category.

Khan has switched between various weight categories throughout his career, starting out in the lightweight category before moving through to light-welterweight, Welterweight and middleweight.

Khan and Bell will fight their match-up in the welterweight category, where they both remain Britain’s top boxers in the category.

The pair were dragged apart by security after ferociously arguing at the press conference on Monday 29 November 2021.

After the press conference, Khan argued that their rivalry was because of “What I’ve done in the sport. The name I’ve got. You can see how bitter he is.

My celebrity status? That comes because of what I’ve achieved in the sport of boxing. It’s not because of other things.

“I’ve put on great performances, won world titles, made a name for myself in America. It all comes from boxing.

“How can you hate on that?”

“It’s personal. It’s not made up. We dislike each other.

“I haven’t lost anything. I might be 35 but Terence Crawford is 34, so is Shawn Porter, and they just had an epic fight, Crawford is one of the best pound-for-pound.

“I’ve still got the power, still got the timing, the experience.

“It will be one of my best performances. It’s about bragging rights. Imagine - whoever loses has to live with for the rest of their lives. I will put myself through hell in training.

“I looked into his eyes - he knows that I’m coming. He never wanted this fight but he’s been backed into a corner. I’ve wanted it for years.”
