He said: “Just had my watch taken off me at gun point in East London, Leyton. I crossed the road with Faryal, luckily she was few steps behind me.

“Two men ran to me, he asked for my watch whilst having a gun pointed in my face. The main thing is we’re both safe.”

Khan was allegedly confronted by the men after leaving a restaurant in Leyton with his wife. Sharing the footage, Khan’s wife said: “Footage of last night’s armed robbery.

“Two men coming out the car… they knew exactly what time we walked out. Seems like a set up to me, considering we didn’t even post where we were.

“It makes me sick to my stomach to know someone sitting in the restaurant was probably the one plotting this.” Hours before the robbery, Khan was pictured wearing the watch whilst he posed for a photo with a fan inside a JD Sports shop.

An eyewitness at the scene told The Sun that Khan was shaken up by the incident, stating: “They [the robbers] 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.'”

A spokesperson from the Metropolitan Police confirmed that a search had been conducted in the area Khan claimed to have been robbed, but they are yet to make any arrests. An official investigation into the incident has been launched.

Amir has also paid tribute to a talented teenage boxer after he was tragically killed in a car crash over the Easter weekend. The former unified light-welterweight world champion described him as a ‘big loss’ to the sport.

Ali Tazeem, 18, suffered fatal injuries following a crash in Wolverhampton in the early hours of this morning. Heartbreaking tributes were issued with many believing he was “a superstar in the making.”

The 35-year-old boxer Khan visited Ali’s loved ones in the West Midlands on Sunday, April 17. He posted on his Facebook and Twitter pages: “Went to show my respect for the loss of my dear friend Tee’s son, Ali Tazeem. Rip champ, a big loss for in the British Asian boxing community.”
