Unfortunately for Khan, things have taken yet another drastic turn for the worse, with the fighter having had a gun held to his face while out in public with his wife, with the assailants making off with his £72k watch.

As is written in the report by The Sun, Khan was understood to be crossing the road in East London when he was approached by two men. They pointed a gun in his face and snatched his Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph watch.

Khan and his wife both made it through the ordeal unharmed, which is the most important thing, but they were understandably shaken up. We can only hope that those responsible are caught and punished by the authorities.
