Tyson Fury has waded into the Amir Khan row by tweeting that his divorce from his wife is ‘total bull’.
The 30-year-old British star confirmed he had broken up with Faryal Makhdoom on Snapchat on August 4, but now fellow boxing champ Tyson has rubbished suggestions that she cheated.
Tyson was born into a family of Irish Traveller heritage, and also said in his tweet that Asians are like Travellers and would never be unfaithful.
The tweet comes after Amir was captured cosying up with his “girl” Gulbahor Becknazar in the back of a taxi before the pair took to the dancefloor at a nightclub during his visit to Dubai.
Gulbahor shared the video clips of her evening out with the star on her Instagram Story, which lasts on the photo-sharing site for 24 hours.
Last week, Amir confirmed he’d called time on his relationship with his wife, saying: ‘Hey guys, hope you’re well. Yeah so everything you saw on social media today, it is real. Obviously me and Faryal have both decided to move on – well, I’ve decided to walk away… nothing’s been hacked and obviously it’s just a tough time we both have to go through.
‘We have to both move forward because it’s not healthy for any of us and I’m just not happy with the way I get treated by her and everything else. So look, I wish her every best for the future and I’m in Dubai at the moment and I’m doing some training and stuff but I don’t want you guys to worry.
‘I am staying strong and I just want to say a big thank you for all your support but yeah. What’s done is done. Everything I posted on social media today was true.’
But his estranged wife hit back, saying: ‘I’m not sure if it’s your family tweeting for you. But I’m not the one who been in the papers for cheating.
She went on: “I’m sure you left your family because they robbed you? Not because of me. Stop making false things up.
‘Accusing other boxers just because your boxing career is finished. Man up amir. (sic)’
