ISLAMABAD – British boxer Aamir Khan has expressed his desire to be the part of the first-ever Pakistan Premier League (PSL). “Yes, I am seriously thinking to get involved in this cricketing event and I also start discussing it with my parents and other family members,” Aamir revealed this while talking to The Nation on Friday. “I want to see international cricket back in Pakistan and it will be a great honour for me to be a part of such event that can help reviving international sports in the country of my parents and I am the son of this soil too. I will definitely buy a team having great players,” Pakistani-origin British boxer vowed. To a query, Aamir said that he was eagerly waiting for his fight against Danny Garcia. “I’d love the rematch against Garcia because I know deep down I’m a better fighter than him. I made a mistake in that fight and I paid a very heavy price for that. But I know I can beat him and especially with the help of my new trainer Virgil Hunter and being based in San Francisco, I’ll knock Danny Garcia out. We want the rematch - any time, anywhere - but I don’t think Garcia will agree to fight me again in the near future as he is fully aware of the fact that I am in better shape and ready to face him at any given place.” Aamir said new trainer had improved his boxing skills and he would hopefully continue with him till the end of his professional career. “I have planned my retirement after I turn 30.” He said he was in Pakistan for shopping of his wedding. “I will tie the knot with Faryal Makhdoom in New York on May 31 this year while I will host the Walima in UK on June 9.” “I hope Faryal will start learning the recipes of Asian foods before the marriage,” Aamir said. When this scribe asked Aamir at what age did he start taking interest in boxing, he replied: “Since my childhood, I was very impatient child. My dad took me to a gym when I was 11 and he wanted me to control my emotions and he thought boxing is best way to control my nerves.” On another query regarding defending the title, Aamir said: “Definitely, winning title is easier than retaining the top position and to sustain the pressure, it is very difficult but I have that hunger and desire to maintain supremacy.” “I love spending time in training and there is hardly any day when I don’t train. It is now become a habit of mine to go through tough training and I can’t live without doing this. Whenever I enter the ring, I am very positive and focus on my main aim to win the bout. When I enter into a competition, my mother remains locked at the hotel room and told my father to call her when the fight is over my father always remains at my side and he is a source of great inspiration to me,” Aamir concluded. –MOHSIN ALI
