Khan focussed for Lawton test


Star turns down Vogue shoot for training

AMIR KHAN is so focussed on next month’s bout with Stoke hardman Scott Lawton he turned down a high profile fashion photo shoot with supermodel Naomi Campbell.

The Commonwealth Lightweight Champion was due to take part in a double-page spread for fashion magazine Vogue alongside Naomi Campbell but was forced to decline in favour of his training schedule for the October 6 fight in Nottingham.

“Naomi is one of the world’s most photographed women, and it would have been fantastic to meet her,” said the unbeaten 20-year-old star.

“But unfortunately the photo shoot was too close to my fight with Lawton, and my boxing training will always come first but I’m really grateful they gave me the opportunity.”

“It’s easy to get distracted, and while it’s amazing to get asked to do so many different things, when I’ve got a fight coming up, there’s only one thing I think about and that’s training and winning.

“Perhaps we can team up some other time – or if she’d like to come to the Nottingham show, I’ll make sure she gets the best seats in the house!”

Khan is keen to prove his critics wrong after he was criticised for the way he left himself open to a multitude of shots during his last bout against Scottish champion Willie Limond.
