British boxer, Amir Khan has accused his wife Faryal Makhdoom of having a relationship with the reigning world heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua after their recent break-up, which Khan announced via social media on Friday afternoon.
The former Light-welterweight World Champion, Khan posted a series of accusations on Twitter while in Dubai, and posted a picture of a separate conversation with his wife.
Khan wrote: “Faryal moved on quick. Always mentioned to me how much she wanted to be with another guy, from all people another boxer.
“Lol moved up in the weight classes lol. Trust me I ain’t the jealous type. No need to send me pictures of the men you’re talking to.
“Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I’m not hurt but another fighter. I’m making it public. You getting the divorce.”
So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best.

Faryal responded with her own claims against him that included accusations that he has cheated on her in the past, with the 26-year-old defending herself and calling her husband “bad company, [a] bad role model and always around women.”
She wrote: “@amirkingkhan I’m not sure if it’s your family tweeting for you. But I’m not the one who been in the papers for cheating.
“I’m sure you left your family because they robbed you? Not because of me. Stop making false things up.
“Accusing other boxers just because your boxing career is finished. Man up Amir.
“After all these years. I’ve always defended a cheat, always stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m called a gold digger?
“It’s like I’m a single mother while he’s out messing around. And he has the nerve to blast me like that? The amount of evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point in my life. I’ll just let it go.
“@amirkingkhan p.s I’m not the one who’s been in the papers for cheating.
“I’m not the one who’s been in the papers every month, Cheater!
“You have actually lost it. where do u make this stuff up from? And maybe your boxing career is finished because you’re an adulterer.
“At the end of the day I can hold my head high knowing I’ve given this marriage my 100% while Amir clearly hasn’t. Bad company, bad role model, always around women, alcohol and then he calls himself a Muslim and runs a charity.”
Faryal Makhdoom ended the conversations as Khan did not reply to the responses and apologising to her followers claiming that her husband was making the accusations up because “he just needs some attention as boxing hasn’t been going well.”.
After the war of words appeared to end, Joshua took to Twitter to make light of the situation, posting a video of the song ‘It Wasn’t Me’ by Shaggy.
