The autobiography of boxing's biggest rising star. Amir Khan is a hard-working, 21st-century hero: a standard bearer for his Pakistani heritage, his Lancashire upbringing and the future of British boxing. At just 17 he won silver at the 2004 Olympics in Athens and when he turned professional in 2005 he won his first fight in 109 seconds. Tickets to his fights sell out in hours and he is watched by millions on prime-time television. But his feet are still firmly on the ground ? he lives at home with his parents in Bolton, fasts in the holy month of Ramadan and can sometimes be spotted helping out at his uncle and auntie?s curry house. Here he tells his story: of a boy from Bolton who just happens to be a world-class boxer.
