In order to provide exposure to local talent and promote boxing in Pakistan, the British-Pakistan Boxer Amir Khan has recently announced to launch a boxing league in the country.

The boxer revealed that “Super Boxing League – Pakistan” will be held in December with franchised-based teams participating in the league.

“There will be eight teams and each team will comprise eight boxers,” Amir stated.

The teams include: Multan Thunders, Faisalabad Falcons, Islamabad Kings, Peshawar Warriors, Lahore Giants, Quetta Stars, Sialkot United and Karachi Devils.

Amir, who held a similar event in India, is hopeful that the event will prove to be beneficial for country’s boxers.

“The league in India was big, big hit, we had so many celebrities [who participated in the event] there,” he said.

“In Pakistan, each team will have a celebrity face from any field singing, acting or [others]. This has never been done before. We tried this in India and it was very successful, this is my own company and I have brought this to Pakistan,” he added.
