Boxer Amir Khan Gears Up For First MMA Venture
Olympic silver medalist and two time world boxing champion Amir Khan is making a move into the sport of MMA.
He won’t be fighting, yet, but instead is now the co-owner of the MMA promotion Super Fight League. SFL was started in 2012 and is still going strong, with over 41 events to its name.
According to boxingscene.com:
Khan will join a new, blue-chip ownership and management team dedicated to expanding the former India-based Super Fight League’s footprint in The U.S., beginning with a television distribution agreement that the company expects to announce soon.
“Under the management of our new team of veterans from both the MMA and media industries, Super Fight League will unveil a new platform as well as an unprecedented new format for MMA competition in 2016,” said Khan. “And, in doing so, will provide a potentially career-changing opportunity to hundreds of professional athletes in this great sport.”
