Khan is also CEO of Khan Promotions and charitable organisation the Amir Khan Foundation.

His request added: “Amir is a sports man - therefore we are looking for sponsorship endorsements, TV shows, news interviews etc.

“The payment structure would work as is - money for commercial/ sponsorships TEAM KHAN would give them 20% on deals and NO Retainer. We look forward to hear from you.”

Khan has previously worked with Tangerine PR in Manchester in 2013.
