On Saturday 15th August, Leicester will be treated to something very special when former two time world champion, Amir Khan, will be in town for an exclusive Q&A evening at Leicester City Football Club.

Amir Khan, born in 1986 in Bolton, Manchester, is now Britain’s highest-profile boxer racking up an impressive professional fight career including becoming the Light Welterweight Champion of the World in July 2009. Khan says about his visit to Leicester; “I’m really looking forward to visiting the multi-cultural city in August to share the stories of my boxing career in a room full of boxing and sports fans”. And Khan has no plans of stopping as talks continue for him to fight the undefeated world champion, Floyd Mayweather.

We have K Kong Events to thank for putting on this special evening after hosting many successful events over the past few years which has seen Leicester greeted by the likes of Mike Tyson, Vinnie Jones and Paul Merson, to name a few.

Shane Whitfield, Founder and Managing Director of K Kong Events says; ‘Amir Khan is an incredible sportsman and boxing champion with many stories to tell and so I’m excited that we’ve been able to get him to come to Leicester for an exclusive Q&A with our guests.’

The evening will be hosted in the Walkers Hall at Leicester City Football Club, which is expected to sell-out fast. Tables of 12 are available from £650 or individual tickets are £65 per person, with the opportunity to meet the man himself. To book your place, visit or
