The Bash Before the Big Bash

British Boxer Amir Khan is used to being the centre of attention, but last weekend he married Faryal Makhdoom at New York’s Waldorf Astoria hotel, in what has been described as a “sumptuous wedding.” The event is said to have cost over GBP1 Million.

The happy couple then flew to Manchester for another celebration where the 4,000 guests attending were asked to sign agreements stating that they would not take photographs or reveal any details of the event as he has signed an exclusive deal with Hello magazine.

He is due to climb back into the ring in December and up a weight to take on IBF Champion Devon Alexander before a possible crack at Floyd Mayweather. Hopefully the purse from these fights will more than adequately cover the cost of his nuptials.

While the fact that he managed to attract 4,000 to the celebrations in Manchester have many small sporting organisations extremely envious as they struggle to attract such numbers on a weekly basis. Pre-match celebrity weddings may well be on the agenda in coming months!
