MANCHESTER: Former world champion Amir Khan was attacked and chased through the streets during what was described as a terrifying road rage incident after being chased through the streets by a group of men.
Khan was driving through his hometown of Bolton when the incident took place. He was called the local police after his Range Rover may have cut off another vehicle while making a wrong turn while driving.
When the incident happened, the paper notes that several men jumped out of the car and one swung a punch at Amir during the confrontation in Bolton, Gtr Manchester.
Amir, 30, called cops following the incident, which was apparently prompted by him making a wrong turn, but no arrests have been made.
A Greater Manchester Police spokeswoman said to “We were called to reports of road rage incident/assault. It appears the person driving has made a wrong turn and this has angered the person behind them and there’s been an altercation. The driver of the first car was punched. There were no arrests. Anyone with information should contact us.”
This is not the first time where Khan had a snafu over his Range Rover.
Back in 2012, a six man gang tried to steal the car from the boxer after following him out from a night spot. Amir and his younger brother Haroon Khan, fought the men off on the streets of Birmingham.
In July 2016, Khan was caught speeding twice in one night – advising officers that he was trying to get away from a crazed fan trying to chase down his vehicle.
Khan has been out of the ring since May 2016, when he moved up to a catch-weight of 155-pounds and was knocked out in six rounds by then WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
