A Boy from Bolton Summary

A Boy from Bolton: My Story by Amir Khan

Seventeen-year-old 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, winning his first pro fight last summer in 109 seconds, and has remained unbeaten ever since. His fights are now regularly shown on ITV, who are scheduling boxing again for the first time in ten years. Tickets to his fights sell out in hours and he commands a TV audience of six or seven million viewers for every fight. Emerging as the posterboy for British multiculturalism and an important role model for Asian youngsters, Amir is loved in the press from the Observer Food Monthly to Nuts magazine. A Boy from Bolton, Amir's autobiography, will tell the story of a boy who Don King has compared to Sugar Ray Robinson, but who still lives at his mum and dad's semi-detached in Bolton with his sister and two kid brothers. A boy who fasts in the Islamic holy month of Ramadan, even when he has a major fight the next day, and can sometimes be spotted helping out on the till at Moods Fast Food, his uncle and auntie's curry house in Bolton, if they're having a busy night Ghostwritten by Kevin Garside, sports reporter for the Telegraph and the Mirror.
