Faryal and Khan have been married since 2013 and have three children together. It is not the first time the Bolton-born fighter has been subjected to such a terrifying order. In 2018, he revealed how he had had to fight off an armed gang trying to steal his £100k Range Rover six years earlier.
“It was really scary because I knew my life was on the line,” he said at the time. “When you are in a situation like that you have to react quickly or you are going to get hurt. There were about 20 guys, all with metal bars.
“I remember the first guy swinging this metal stick at my head but luckily he missed. He tried a second time and I countered him. He was out cold. Then another guy came at me but I was able to tackle him as well.
“Then the three of us [Amir, his boxer brother Haroon and another man] drove off as fast as we could. People might say I was a coward for running away but I am happy I did, because I am still here. Those guys were big and out to hurt me.”
