LAHORE – British boxer Amir Khan arrived in Pakistan to watch the 3rd T20 international between Pakistan and Sri Lanka in Lahore here on Sunday.

“Pakistan is a safe country for sports, I have come here to support our team,” Khan said while speaking to media at the Allama Iqbal International Airport.

He said he was glad that international cricket is back in Pakistan. “I want international players to come here to promote cricket because Pakistani youth love sports”.

The 31-year old boxer last fought a professional bout in May 2017 in which he was knocked out by Mexico’s Canelo Alvarez.

He underwent a surgery on his hand to overcome an injury which he was reportedly carrying for years.
