At age 17, Amir Khan became Britain?s youngest Olympic boxer since 1976 when he won silver at the 2004 Olympics in Athens. He turned professional in 2005 and has remained unbeaten ever since, with tickets to his fights sell out in hours. He has also emerged as the poster boy for British multiculturalism and an important role model for Asian youngsters. This hard-hitting autobiography tells the story of a boy who Don King has compared to Sugar Ray Robinson, but who still lives at his parent?s home with his sister and two younger brothers.?Amir remains religious?he continues to fast in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan even when he has a major fight the next day?as well as down to earth, as he can sometimes be spotted helping out on the register at his uncle and aunt?s curry?restaurant if they are having a busy night.
