Former world champion, Amir Khan was robbed of his £72,000 luxury watch at gunpoint by two thugs while out with his wife in East London last night.
The 35-year-old boxer has claimed that a gun was pointed in his face as his assailants stole his Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph before speeding off in a car in Leyton at around 9.15pm.
The former boxing world champion took to Twitter to share details of the incident, noting that he and his wife were both unharmed.
Khan said: ‘Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in East London, Leyton.
Hours before the incident, Khan was pictured with a fan while shopping in Oxford Street wearing his flashy watch, which is worth around £72,000 and is studded with 719 diamonds.
An eyewitness told The Sun that Khan was visibly shaken by the ordeal, adding: ‘They were not hanging around. They got straight into the car and fled.
‘Amir had enjoyed a lovely evening with his wife and had been shopping earlier in the day. It raises real fears he was a deliberate target. It’s extremely serious. He was left absolutely terrified.’
