The Bolton boxer proudly shared the clip – but the haters soon jumped on it
AMIR KHAN launched an X-rated attack on a fan after a cringe moment that saw him present rapper Eminem with a limited edition luxury watch.
The incident occurred ahead of the WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury’s crossover boxing bout with UFC legend Francis Ngannou in Saudi Arabia tonight – with Paddy Power offering mega odds of 30/1 on the Gypsy King winning.

Both stars are in the Middle East and they came face-to-face on Thursday for what has been billed as the Battle of the Baddest.
Icons from all over the world have flown in for the bout, with Cristiano Ronaldo leading the list of big names for an A-list bash last night.
Legendary rap artist Eminem, who was also involved in an awkward situation with Ngannou, and former British boxer Khan were both in attendance at the dinner in Riyadh.
However, while Eminem was tucking into his food, Khan took his opportunity to present the American with a unique gift.
In a video posted onto his Instagram, the 36-year-old puts a limited edition WBC Championship title style watch around the wrist of the confused-looking Slim Shady.
His followers instantly jumped into the comments, with one scathing fan saying: “Eminem is worth more than you he don’t need your charity you sell out.”
And that remark appeared to hit a sore point with Khan as he responded by telling the individual to “shut the f*** up”.
Khan said: “Bro stfu. He’s a boxing fan and complimented the WBC watch only fighters got gifted today. So I gave him mine.”
Following that gesture, Khan and Eminem looked a lot more relaxed as they posed together for a photo, which also accompanied the video on his Instagram.
Khan suffered a devastating loss to Kell Brook in February 2022 before retiring, but he was then hit with a two-year ban in April for failing a drugs test after that fight.
That ban was backdated to the date of his provisional suspension due to him not fighting since – which means he could compete again from April 2024.
And he told the Daily Mail that he is targeting a potential money-spinning comeback against the legendary Manny Pacquiao.
Khan said: “We are in talks. We’ve spoken a few times and that fight could happen.
“There’s a lot of interest in that fight between Manny Pacquiao and myself.
“Manny is in town so this is where me and him will have a sit down. If it happens (the fight) here or somewhere else it would be great.”
