A scare and a total damage of 87,000 euros. Walking through the streets of Leyton, east London, the former world boxing champion had his watch stolen after being robbed by two armed men on Sunday, April 17.

Walking through the British capital with his wife Faryal Makhdoom this Sunday, Amir Khan was the victim of an assault at gunpoint.

The scene, filmed by video surveillance cameras and broadcast on social networks, showed the two attackers getting out of the car, before robbing the former boxing silver medalist at the 2004 Athens Olympics and taking him with his watch, whose estimated value is 87,000 euros.

My watch was just taken at gunpoint in East London, Leyton. I crossed the street with Faryal, luckily she was a few steps behind me. 2 men ran up to me, he asked me for my watch while pointing a gun at my face. The main thing is that we are both safe, “explained the unfortunate on Twitter on Monday.

A watch with 719 diamonds

Hoping to get his valuable item back, the 35-year-old athlete posted precise information about the watch, including its serial number and price, on his Instagram account.

Amir Khan revealed the exact model of the latter, namely a Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph encrusted with 719 diamonds, worth exactly £72,000, or almost €87,000.

This story came a day before current F1 world championship leader Charles Leclerc’s watch was stolen during a selfie in Italy on Monday.
