“It’s simple…when you look good you feel good.”
Amir Khan, 24, is the reigning WBA world light-welterweight champion and 2004 Olympic silver medalist. Humble and family orientated, away from the cameras he is regarded as boxing’s next superstar. A proud fan of his hometown club Bolton Wanderers, Amir is often a regular at the Reebok stadium where he cheers his team on. After his successful title defence in Las Vegas last December against the hard-hitting Marcos Maidana, ‘King’ Khan is now aiming to unify his division should he overcome the undefeated Irishman Paul McCloskey on April 16 at the M.E.N Arena.
As a sportsman you obviously take care of your body. How do you take care of your face?
I obviously train regularly. Aside from that my main focus is concentrating on not being hit in the face during a fight.
Do you have a grooming routine?
No, I don’t have a routine as much. After a fight I will clean up with a long hot bath followed by a shower. I shave once a week at least, and again if there is a special occasion.
What are your favourite products?
I use Clinique For Men skin products and Dax Wax on my hair. They both do the job.
Do you have a signature aftershave?
I really like Comme des Garcons.
What does being well groomed mean to you?
It’s simple isn’t it. When you look good, you feel good.
