By Vivek Chaudhary For Mailonline. Amir Khan has not spoken to his parents for the past six months as a bitter feud that once tore the family apart resurfaces, MailOnline can reveal.
In an exclusive interview, Amir's father Shah Khan blamed his son's wife Faryal Makhdoom Khan and her mother for the latest fall out, accusing them of trying to control his life and drive a wedge between him and his family.
Speaking from his home in Bolton, Shah said: 'Amir's wife and mother-in-law have teamed up, per cent. They're in his head, both of them.
They want to control everything about Amir. They're running the show. They want to run everything in his life. We said fine, carry on with it.
We've taken a step back. I have no idea. They keep pumping his head with 'oh they've Khan family ripped you off.
They say that I've robbed him. They've turned him against us. Amir's parents told MailOnline that the boxer's wife Faryal pictured and her mother a controlling their son and have taken him away from them.
Amir and his father were once close but the boxer sacked him as his manager in February in a move that Shah said had publicly humiliated him during his feud with the star's wife Faryal.
Amir said he was divorcing Faryal pictured in after she fell out with his parents - but the couple called off their separation after she revealed she was pregnant with their second child.
Shah revealed that the current spat stemmed from last November when Amir went to Saudi Arabia with his wife to perform Umrah, the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.
While there, Amir exchanged some social media messages with his youngest sister Mariyah which, Shah claims, 'were not nice. He added: 'I couldn't see Amir sending those messages but they did come from his phone, so I wanted to know if he'd sent them.
I thought when he gets back, I'll ask him, face to face but we've not faced each other since then. The Khan family publicly fell out in and amid a scathing war of words between Faryal and her in laws which was widely played out in the media.
She accused them of bullying and violence while they branded her 'evil' and labelled her a bad mother.
The dispute prompted Amir to announce that he was divorcing his wife but they reunited after she revealed that she was pregnant with their second child.
The couple have two children Lamisah, aged five and one-year old Alayna. Shah and Falak pictured revealed that the current spat stemmed from last November when Amir went to Saudi Arabia with his wife to perform Umrah, the Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca.
The boxer's parents pictured with Amir and his brother Haroon on a private jet said the row began when Amir exchanged social media messages with his youngest sister Mariyah which, Shah claims, 'were not nice.
Shah said: 'I thought it was all sorted. Faryal came into my office, apologised and said, 'I was wrong. We put things behind us and moved on.
But I look back now and think it was all a load of bull. We thought what's happened has happened, you move on and hopefully you never make the same mistake again.
Despite burying the hatchet following their high profile fall out, Shah said: 'Deep down, I don't think she Faryal ever liked me.
Shah protested: 'That really annoyed me. I'd like him Amir to tell me what's the family saying to you? The family has been doing its own thing for the past six months.
We've not even spoken to the guy so what the hell is his problem. The family's not saying anything to him.
Shah revealed that he was forced to speak out this time following recent media reports suggesting that Bolton-based Amir was moving to London with Faryal and their two children to get away from his family and 'save his marriage.
Shah maintained that he is still seething from an incident late last November after his wife Falak pictured was rushed to hospital with an anxiety attack following a heated telephone conversation with Faryal's mother, Kausar Zia.
They don't want any of us around him. It's up to him, if that's what they want, fine, be happy. I've no problem with it. It annoys you, upsets you, but fine.

Retrieved 24 March On 2 February , Khan was scheduled to fight Martin Kristjansen , but illness forced the Dane to withdraw. Instead, Khan had to defend his Commonwealth title against late replacement Gairy St.
Clair at the ExCel Arena , London. It was his first fight to last all twelve rounds and he won via a unanimous decision, with shutout scores of — from all three judges.
On 5 April , Khan beat Kristjansen, dropping him three times in the seventh round to force a technical knockout TKO stoppage. Following the victory, Khan was made number one contender for the WBO lightweight title.
Following the fight, Khan split from his trainer Oliver Harrison, the trainer for all of his previous 17 professional contests. The break-up was blamed on Harrison's concerns that Khan's public engagements were interfering with his fight preparations.
Khan knocked Gomez down twice in the fight, once in the opening round, and once in the fifth before the referee waved the fight off, giving Khan the victory via TKO.
Still, Khan himself was hurt at various times during the fight, and was himself dropped in the second round. Despite Khan's eagerness at a world title shot, his promoter, Frank Warren , insisted that "He needs more schooling".
Following the Gomez fight, Jorge Rubio was installed as Khan's new trainer. Rubio had previously coached Richar Abril , who had recently lost a close decision to Prescott.
Prescott had a prolific knock-out record of 17 KOs in 19 contests, yet Khan was a huge favourite. In the first round, Prescott came out fast and landed good shots; a stiff jab jerked Khan's head back and foreshadowed what was to come.
Prescott landed a left hook on Khan's temple, dizzying his senses. Instead of holding, Khan tried to fire back, but was hit to the head by a left hook, right hook combination that sent him crashing to the canvas.
Although Khan managed to return to his feet, Prescott forced the stoppage with another left that put Khan down again. The bout was officially called off at 55 seconds.
Following the defeat, Rubio was sacked and was replaced by Freddie Roach. Khan knocked Fagan down twice in the first round and Fagan's corner threw in the towel after he was knocked down again in the second.
Following the fight, it emerged that Fagan had suffered a fractured fibula during the first knockdown. In early , it was announced that Khan would fight former seven-time and three-weight world champion Marco Antonio Barrera.
The fight was stopped towards the end of the fifth round due to Barrera suffering a cut in the first round, which resulted from a clash of heads.
With Barrera deemed in no position to fight on by the ringside doctor, the fight then went to the scorecards, on all three of which Khan was ahead 50—44, and 50—45 twice.
Frank Warren was sufficiently impressed with Khan's performance to vow to land a world title fight for him before the end of the year.
There was a lot on his shoulders, but I always felt he could rise to the big occasion. I'd like to see him get a belt round his waist by the end of this year.
Khan also commented on the fight, saying:. I felt so completely easy, catching him with jabs. I felt like I was on a better level than him.
The jabbing and patience — I felt so strong. You could see the difference. I had to take some shots in that match. I made some mistakes in the past and I'm not going to make them again.
Khan Said, "This is the best news that I could have received. To fight for the world title in only my 22nd fight and at the age of just 22 is fantastic.
Frank has done a great job getting the world title fight for me in Britain and now I have to go out win it. Kotelnik rallied in the closing rounds but could not land a decisive punch on Khan in spite of his best efforts.
After the fight, Khan said, "It's the best feeling ever. I want to thank Freddie Roach and my team for making this happen. I'm a world champion and I'm going to enjoy it.
I'm still young and I've got big things to come. Salita was knocked down three times, the first time just 10 seconds into the fight.
It was the first loss of Salita's career. In front of a crowd of 4,, in a one-sided fight, Khan retained his title after referee Steve Smoger halted the fight at 1 minute 25 seconds of round eleven.
In the aftermath Malignaggi admitted he lost to the better man, saying, "I've fought two elite fighters, Miguel Cotto and Amir Khan.
From here, I'm not sure where I go. I'll sit down with my team. I don't want to be a punching bag. Immediately after the fight, Khan stated he wanted to fight Marcos Maidana next, and that he would not be leaving the light-welterweight division until he had unified the various belts, suggesting that the way to do this would be for him to fight Maidana, and then go on to face the winner of a Devon Alexander vs.
Timothy Bradley match. Maidana 29—1, 27 KOs , after failing to challenge undefeated WBO light-welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, postponed the fight to 19 June due to a back injury.
Maidana went on to win by UD. One of his possible opponents was lightweight champion Juan Manuel Marquez.
Marquez decided not to move up in weight and stayed at lightweight. Maidana then stated his intention to fight Khan: "Stop looking for possible opponents for next Khan 11 December in England.
Stop looking for lightweight boxers and face the real pounders. I'll go to Khan's home soil to take the other portion of the WBA title that belongs to me.
Khan successfully defended his title for the third time against Maidana. Khan knocked Maidana down with a combination of two body shots in the first round.
Maidana was saved by the bell but regained composure and continued to battle on. Khan dominated the scoring until tiring around round seven.
Maidana rallied and midway through round ten stunned Khan with a heavy right hand. Maidana followed up with a series of uppercuts and right hands.
Khan then rallied to win rounds eleven and twelve to solidify a UD win. The scores were — twice, and — Khan was open to a rematch. On 4 February , Khan announced a deal had been signed to defend his WBA title against European champion Paul McCloskey in his next fight, who was unbeaten in 22 fights and was ranked world number Another tactical few rounds followed, with Khan the main aggressor.
In the decisive sixth, a five-punch combination from Khan staggered McCloskey and moments later the pair went toe-to-toe before McCloskey reeled away and noticed blood coming from around his left eye.
Khan had some trouble with the awkward and resilient southpaw , who was difficult to hit cleanly, but he was both too quick and too busy for McCloskey, winning all six rounds on all three cards.
Mikkel Kessler , which sold 50, buys,  thus the Khan—McCloskey fight sold about , buys. Khan was unhappy that a fight with Bradley could not be made.
He said, "Bradley was the guy I wanted to fight but he chickened out. All four rounds were taken by Khan.
Ultimately in the fifth round Judah was taken down with a right uppercut to the body, in which at first commentators believed it was a low blow, since Judah was showing signs of agonising pain, but when it was seen from a different camera angle, it was right on the belt, leading to an 18th knockout KO for Khan in his career so far.
Khan later rejected claims for the low blow saying, "He went down. It was above the belt. Zab's a great fighter.
I respect him a lot. But it was nowhere near below [the belt]. It was a great shot. Following the Judah victory, Khan began chasing a big money fight with top pound for pound fighter Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Mayweather seemed uninterested, and instead said that Khan should fight the Mayweather Promotions prospect Jessie Vargas , an option that Khan dismissed.
The fight would take place on 10 December in Peterson's home town of Washington, D. Washington Convention Center. In front of a near sell out crowd of 8,, Peterson defeated Khan by split decision SD in controversial fashion.
Khan was docked a point in rounds seven and twelve by referee Joe Cooper for pushing, although illegal pushing is not usually met with such harsh consequences.
Peterson was dropped to the canvas twice, although the first time was counted as a slip instead of a legitimate knockdown.
Both fighters boxed well and two judges scored it — to Peterson, with the other — to Khan. Deadspin described it as a robbery.
I was the cleaner fighter; he was so wild. The referee wasn't giving me a chance. I heard the referee give me a warning [for pushing], but there was nothing I could do.
He kept coming in with his head. There hasn't been [HBO] boxing in D. Khan appealed the decision to the sanctioning bodies, citing the poor refereeing, and the presence of a "mystery man" at ringside who could have interfered with the scoring.
A rematch was due to take place in May, but in the run up to the fight, Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone. The Nevada Athletic Commission denied Peterson a licence to box, and the fight was cancelled.
Khan hit the canvas and was clearly hurt, on unsteady legs, for the remaining seconds of the round. Referee Kenny Bayless stopped the fight despite Khan assuring him he could continue.
After the fight, Khan said, "It wasn't my night. I was coming in with my hands down and Danny took advantage of that. He countered very well against me.
It was hoped that the new coach could improve Khan's defensive skills. Molina would be moving up in weight for his first twelve-round fight. Khan pushed Molina onto the back foot and landed a sharp right hand that cut Molina over the left eye.
Khan was stiffened by a right hook in the second before steadying the ship and resuming control of the contest. With Molina's cut deteriorating badly and taking plenty of punishment, referee Jack Reiss suggested his corner pull him out at the end of the ninth, however Molina was sent out for more, despite it being abundantly clear that he did not have the ability to do Khan much damage.
Khan started to let his hands go more in round ten, after which his corner finally decided it had seen enough. The fight took place at the Motorpoint Arena in Sheffield.
Khan managed to hold on throughout the fight to go onto win by UD. The scorecards read —, —, and — I went down.
I kept moving to recompose myself. That's what happens. There are little things to work on when we go back in the gym.
Khan was too fast and too disciplined for Collazo, flooring him in the fourth round and twice in the tenth. The judges scored the fight —, and — twice in Khan's favour.
Collazo hit Khan with a low blow while Khan was holding his head down. Collazo's failed approach resulted in a mismatch on the scorecards.
Collazo fought with his hands down most of the night, unafraid of Khan, believing Khan had no power and he would eventually knock him out.
In the post-fight interview in the ring, Khan credited his twelve months of boxing training with Virgil Hunter for his success.
Khan looked to fight one more time in , targeting Devon Alexander or Robert Guerrero. In front of 7, in attendance, Khan produced a dominant performance to secure a unanimous points victory over Alexander.
All three judges scored heavily in Khan's favour, —, — and — Alexander followed Khan around the ring throughout but was unable to land more than one punch at a time as Khan met him in his tracks with hard combinations.
After his victory Khan reiterated his desire to fight Floyd Mayweather. He was brilliant. I wouldn't have fought him. He is hitting his peak just now.
He looked incredible. Algieri fought a far better fight than he did against Manny Pacquiao, throwing more punches and landing some power shots.
Following the victory, Khan was now 5—0 against New York opponents. Mayweather is a champion, so let's make it happen.
That total came from 13, tickets sold, far short of a sellout. Andre Berto. Pacquiao was initially in negotiations to fight Jeff Horn in Australia, but held a poll asking the fans who he should fight next.
Khan won the poll, thus setting up the fight. It's dead. What is wrong with you, mate? Khan knocked Lo Greco out in 39 seconds of round one, setting a new record for himself.
The first knockdown occurred after just 15 seconds when Khan landed a right hand to the head. Lo Greco appeared hurt, but managed to beat the 10 count.
When the action resumed, Khan quickly moved on Lo Greco, putting him against the ropes with a flurry of punches until he dropped once more. Referee Victor Loughlin called a halt to the fight immediately.
Khan said, "The weight is an issue with Kell, I'm a lbs fighter. I will fight and beat Kell Brook and the world knows it. At an official press conference on 28 June, it was announced that Khan would return to Arena Birmingham for the first time since , against Colombian Samuel Vargas 29—3—2, 14 KOs , who has been a five-fight unbeaten run since November Speaking of the fight, Khan said, "One of my aims this year was to be as active as possible, so I'm very happy to get back in the ring again so soon against Samuel Vargas.
Vargas is a tough and well-schooled fighter, who has shared the ring with some top welterweights including Danny Garcia and Errol Spence Jr.
At first attempt Khan weighed He then took off his socks and weighed Khan then took off his shorts, stripping completely naked and made the lbs limit.
The fight took place on 8 September , Khan won the fight by UD, with scores of —, — and — Vargas dropped Khan once in round three.
Khan fought well in round five in landing a lot of fast combinations to the head of Vargas, who suffered a nose injury.
