Brit Muslim boxer involved in hammer attack horrorJanuary 1st, 2009 - 9:35 pm ICT by ANI
London, Jan.1 (ANI): British Muslim boxer Amir Khan has been left reeling after a hammer-wielding maniac smashed up his 50,000-pound car. According to The Sun, a stranger confronted Amir, 22, in the street when he was picking up a takeaway from a restaurant.
Khan, carving out an explosive professional career after winning an Olympic silver medal, tried to ignore him.
But the boxer and his pals were stunned when the man returned with a hammer and laid into his white Range Rover Sport caving in the rear windscreen and two side windows.
Last night an onlooker said: It was really weird. This guy went up to Amir in the street and started staring at him.
Then he said: So, you think youre a boxer what are you going to do?
There was a bit of scuffling between him and Amirs mates, and then another guy stepped in and broke it up.
But a few moments later the bloke who had been eyeballing Amir returned with a hammer and ran towards the Range Rover. Then he suddenly started smashing the windows. It was like this fella was crazy. But there was no way anyone was going to try and stop him because he was swinging this hammer about. It all happened so fast. Then this bloke just ran off.
Amir and his friends were left totally shocked.
Amir took the car for repairs to a dealer near his home in Bolton, Greater Manchester. (ANI)
