Countdown to Athens
Around the Academy:

Amir can eat fatty foods because he burns it off so easily!


Amir Khan


To get ready for Athens I went to Cyprus for a training camp for 10 days.

Then I went to France for an international training camp followed by Sheffield's Institute of Sport.

So I've been away from home quite a bit training and sparring with different boxers from around the country.

To prepare mentally before a fight, I go through my best couple of fights on video and refresh myself on different tactics.

To relax I go to the pictures, chill out, go out with my mates.

I like fish and chips and all the fatty foods you can eat.

One of the keys for me is to eat fatty foods because I burn it off.

I think that's why I'm so good because I burn all that energy off.

I like curry and naans and any takeaway food.

I'm a fairly big eater!
