Amir Khan is a British Pakistani boxer whom we have seen performing his best in rights and has been a world champion in his career. He became famous after he won a medal in the 2004 Olympics and then had fights with all the heavy weights of the game in his career. Pakistanis have supported Amir’s career a lot and he has received a lot of love from them even after his retirement which he announced last year.
Amir Khan has taken retirement from the world of boxing but the athlete has now been banned from the sport for two years as he was positive on an anti-doping test during his last fight with Kell Brook.
Amir was found positive for taking ostarine, a substance which has similar effects as testosterone. Amir has thus been banned from boxing from April 2022 to April 2024.
The athlete has, however, clarified that he had taken the substance well before the fight and in a very small amount and thus it had no effect on his fight. He also said that he is retired and has no plans to make a comeback thus a ban is not really understandable. He said while talking to Sky Sports:
“I’ve never cheated. But I’ve got a two-year ban now, which is quite strange and funny because I’m already retired anyway. There’s no comeback planned at all. But I’ve never cheated and I never will. That’s just not something I would do.”
