Amir Khan gifts Eminem expensive watch before responding to fan who criticised the gesture

Amir Khan gifts Eminem expensive watch before responding to fan who criticised the gesture

Eminem received a generous gift from ex-boxer Amir Khan in the form of an expensive watch, and Khan hit back at a fan who criticised him.

Amir Khan and Eminem were both present at a dinner event on Friday night on the eve of the Fury vs Ngannou bout in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

The ex-boxer and the rapper were not the only stars at the event, with other guests such as Royce da 5’9″, Oleksandr Usyk, and one of the fighters in Francis Ngannou.

Khan, best known for being Britain's youngest boxing Olympic medalist and for holding the unified light-welterweight world championships between for three years between 2009-2012, was filmed gifting Eminem what looked like an expensive watch at the event.

The ex-professsional boxer posted a photo of him and Eminem on Instagram, where he got a hate comment from a fan, who said: 'Eminem is worth more than you he don't need your charity you sell out'

To which Khan responded: 'Bro stfu. He's a boxing fan and complimented the WBC watch only for fighters got gifted today. So I gave him mine. Move.'

Eminem is a man of little emotions in public, so it was hard to tell how happy he was to receive the watch, though Amir Khan filmed the 51-year-old saying that he was a big boxing fan on his Instagram story.

The star-studded dinner was held on the eve of the Tyson Fury vs Francis Ngannou boxing match, which is set to take place on Saturday night in Riyadh, the capital of Saudi Arabia.

Fury will look to prolong his unbeaten boxing record, having won 33 of his 34 bouts, drawing just one, the infamous first match vs Deontay Wilder.

Ngannou will be making his boxing debut on Saturday night, having made the switch over from MMA, with the Cameroonian winning 17 of his 20 fights, losing just three.

Fury looks to be the strong favouorite for this match-up, but Ngannou is sure to give the 'Gypsy King' a run for his money.
