BIRMINGHAM: Boxing legend Amir Khan is to celebrate his 31st birthday with a knockout party at a city shisha lounge.
The Bolton-born former world champion recently flew back from Australia after finishing fifth in this year’s I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out of Here! competition.
But he will be driven south from his Greater Manchester home to spend this evening (Saturday 16) at Digbeth’s Argeela Lounge & Grill.
Having turned 31 on December 8, Amir will celebrate his birthday in Birmingham with US-born wife Faryal Makhdoom who is four months pregnant with their second child.
In recent months the pair were said to be on the brink of a divorce, but Amir announced before he flew to Australia they were back together.
After first jetting to Dubai, Amir returned home to see Faryal and their two-year-old daughter, Lamaisah, who presented him with a brand new iPhone X.
Amir is not the first leading light to want to celebrate his birthday in the city.
