Amir Khan slams selectors for allowing 'Delhi CWG success' brother to box for Pak

British boxing ace Amir Khan has slammed Englands boxing selectors after his brother Haroon Khan guaranteed himself a medal at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.


London, Oct 11: British boxing ace Amir Khan has slammed England's boxing selectors after his brother Haroon Khan guaranteed himself a medal at the Delhi Commonwealth Games.

Haroon was forced to fight for Pakistan after being snubbed by the country of his birth.

He is now guaranteed a medal after beating Wales' Andrew Selby to reach the flyweight division semi-finals.

"I hope the England selectors wake up and realize they are not doing their job right. Where is all the Lottery funding being spent? This is the reason young fighters like Haroon are walking away," The Sun quoted Khan, as saying.The Pakistan team doesn't even have a physio or nutritionist due to costs. Haroon had no Lottery funding, no training camps or international experience. What he has achieved is all down to raw talent," he added.

Earlier, Haroon had said that his aim was to win a medal at the Games in Delhi and prove the selectors wrong.

"Proving the selectors wrong feels better than having the medal round my neck. My aim was to get a medal. The English flyweight did not get it and I did. I wanted to get a medal to prove to the Amateur Boxing Association I'm good enough to get in the British squad and I've done that," Haroon had said.

"I've made my dad proud and I'm going to make him more proud," he added.

The 19-year-old further said that he would not be following in his brother's footsteps by competing for Britain at the 2012 London Olympics.

"If it is going to be 2012, I'll definitely fight for Pakistan," Haroon said.
