He added, “I would love to make pakistan a better place and be a massive help in many areas. Being sport, education, stopping child labouring and many more things. We will all leave this world one day, but whilst we still around we all should do our bit.”

Amir Khan went on to write on his facebook post about politics, “Ive sat with many politicians and army generals agreeing and disagreeing on topics in the country. My heart is clean and I would want the best for Pakistan. Lets see how things play out. My old stable mate world champion boxer manny pacquiao also joined politics.”

In the end, he wrote, “in Philipines, I have been watching the great work Manny Pacquiao has done for his country and I know I could do the same for pakistan. It will be a massive decision to make. I one day might consider this. I like to ask my followers what they think about this?”

But right after two days this time taking to Twitter he shared that he declined the offer.
