“Mans like Joshua can have my left overs!” (sic) was the final tweet in a series of claims that the British boxer made, adding that he had to leave his family as well as friends to be with Faryal, who eventually cheated on him.
Amir, who is in Dubai currently, took to Twitter to claim that his wife Faryal cheated on him and confirmed that the pair has separated. “So me and the wife Faryal have agreed to split. I’m currently in Dubai. Wish her all the best,” he wrote.

Amir also shared a photo of a chat box, alleging that his wife moved on quickly.
Amir went on to add:
Lol moved up in the weight classes lol. Trust me I ain't the jealous type. No need to send me pictures of the men your talking to #disgusted— Amir Khan (@amirkingkhan) August 4, 2017
He claimed that he had to leave his family and friends for Faryal.
Left my family and friends for this Faryal. I'm not hurt but another fighter. I'm making it public. You getting the divorce #Golddigger— Amir Khan (@amirkingkhan) August 4, 2017
He was particularly nasty towards Joshua, for whom he tweeted:

According to stuff.co.nz, the first impression of the series of tweets suggested that Amir’s account was hacked, but the boxer made it official by saying, “It is real. Obviously, me and Faryal have both decided to move on — well, I’ve decided to walk away. Nothing has been hacked.”
On her part, Faryal too posted a series of tweets, but deleted them later on. She claimed Amir was a cheat and he was seeking attention since he has not had much success in the ring of late. “After all these years. I’ve always defending a cheat, always stuck around for him, always had his back. And I’m called a gold digger?” (sic), she said.
“The amount of evidence I have on you. It can destroy you. But since I loved you at one point in my life. I’ll just let it go,” Faryal added.
Joshua brushed aside the claims made by Amir and tweeted thinking that the boxer’s account was hacked. He claimed he has never even met Faryal.
Bantz aside, I hope you guys can resolve your situation or this is a hack as we have never even met! Plus I like my women BBW #ItWasntMe— Anthony Joshua (@anthonyfjoshua) August 4, 2017
Faryal later retweeted a tweet on allegations involving Joshua and wrote, “You have actually lost it. Wtf. where do u make this stuff up from?” (sic).
This is not the first time Amir and Faryal were involved in dirty exchanges on Twitter. Last year, Faryal had claimed Amir’s family had issues with her clothing as well as her faith.
