Amir Khan Has Surgery On Secret Hand Issue

Amir Khan Has Surgery On Secret Hand Issue

Amir Khan has been keeping quite the secret. The former world champion has gone on record claiming that he's been suffering from a broken hand for the last 13 years of his fighting career.

As a result of the hand condition, it's apparently prevented him from delivering a full power right hand. In order to fix the issue he's undergone surgery to rearrange his hands while it'll take approximately three months to be fully healed, the Bolton-native can't wait to lace up a pair of gloves.

Speaking to The Sun he addressed his injury; "I kept the news of my hand injury quiet from everyone. I had to because I didn't want any of my opponents to know about it."

His desire to become world champion, which he experienced 2009 and then again in 2011, was the reason he delayed the surgery. "I know people might question why I didn't get the operation sooner but I couldn't - I was too set on chasing my dream to become world champion and I was in big fights."

Though, after his brutal knock-out to 'Canelo' he knew it was time to undergo the surgery, and he believes he'll be better than ever; "I am going to go into fights now knowing I have power in this hand and it is alright. That in itself is a massive confidence boost. I'm really excited to get in the ring and punch somebody in the face"
