Boxer Amir Khan Gifts His WBC Watch to Eminem in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia
Both Khan and Eminem presently find themselves in the heart of the Middle East, attending the much-anticipated “Battle of the Baddest” event. This grand occasion showcases the crossover bout between WBC heavyweight champion Tyson Fury and UFC icon Francis Ngannou. The star-studded affair has drawn luminaries from around the world, with none other than Cristiano Ronaldo leading the roster of distinguished guests at the exclusive pre-game gathering.
Spotting Marshall from a distance, the Bolton native couldn't contain his excitement as he announced Eminem's presence.
Khan was pleasantly surprised to discover Eminem's deep knowledge and appreciation for the sport of boxing, remarking:"Guys, look, we have the main man here. Eminem’s in the house! What’s going on, brother? I didn’t know you were that much of a boxing fan, bro. You know your boxing, bro!"
