Khan Offers His Wedding Venue To Help Those Affected By COVID-19

All over the world, people are doing whatever they can to combat the coronavirus. From law enforcement to hospitals to supermarkets, the world is watching heroes make sacrifices for the greater good. Athletes are also joining in, including boxer Amir Khan.

A former WBA and IBF Light-Welterweight Champion, Khan (34-5) is offering his 60,000 square foot wedding venue in Bolton, estimated at about £5 million, to help the National Health Service and those affected by the virus. The venue was meant for his wedding and a retail outlet.

In a tweet, Khan stated the following:

“I am aware of how difficult it is for the public to get a hospital bed in this tragic time. I am prepared to give my 60,000 square foot 4 story building which is due to be a wedding hall and retail outlet to the @NHSuk to help people affected by the coronavirus. Pls keep safe.”

This is not the first time Khan has done something for the people worried about the coronavirus. He has been posting workout videos on social media along with advice for those around the world. Khan hasn’t fought since July 2019, beating Billy Dib via TKO in Saudi Arabia. He ended up winning the WBC Intercontinental Welterweight Title as a result.

According to the latest from Business Insider, the United Kingdom had over 8,077 cases of the coronavirus, with over 422 deaths. There are over 100 cases in Manchester.
