30k Shorts Will Go Towards Peshawar Disaster
Bolton’s Amir Khan has said that he will be donating his boxing shorts, worth £30,000, to the disaster relief in Peshawar.
The donated money will go towards rebuilding the army school where 141 children and staff were killed by the Taliban.
The 28-year-old-Boxer had worn the shorts, which have a waistband made from 24-carat gold threading, in his points win against Devon Alexander.
“It was just very sad to see innocent kids being killed,” said Khan.
“I want to donate the shorts for the Peshawar cause, rebuild a school and strengthen security around the area.”
“We are very lucky in England,” Khan told BBC Radio 5 live. “We have good security and I will be able to send my little girl to school and know she will be fine, but in Pakistan you cannot do that.
“They send the kids outside the house and do not know if they are going to come back. It’s very sad to know that.
