- Amir Khan tells fan to ‘stfu’ after they hit out over his interaction with Eminem
- Khan was seen in an awkward video giving the rapper with an exclusive watch
- Both the rapper and boxer where in Saudi Arabia ahead of Tyson Fury fight
Khan and the multi-million-pound music mogul were both attending a dinner in Saudi Arabia ahead of Tyson Fury‘s fight with Francis Ngannou on Saturday night, and whilst Eminem was enjoying his cuisine, Khan saw an opportunity to give the 51-year-old the unique gift.
Posting the video to his Instagram page, Khan is seen putting a limited edition WBC Championship title style watch around the wrist of a confused-looking Eminem.
The clip prompted a number of comments on Khan’s page, including one that slated the 36-year-old for interacting with the rapper by posting: ‘Eminem is worth more than you he don’t need your charity you sell out.’
The harsh words saw Khan hit out at the comment, where he slammed the post by telling them to ‘shut the f**k up’ and then explained how Eminem had complimented the Brit boxer’s watch, and so Khan had given it to him as a gift.

The exchange led to ridicule online, but Khan hit back by telling a fan to ‘shut the f**k up’
Khan said: ‘Bro stfu. He’s a boxing fan and complimented the WBC watch only fighters got gifted today. So I gave him mine.’
After the awkward-looking exchange between the boxer and the rapper, the pair did pose for a more relaxed picture – the one that Khan lead his Instagram post with.
Khan is in town to watch the showdown between Fury and UFC star Ngannou, but has also been speaking about a possible comeback of his own next year.
The former light-heavyweight champion hasn’t stepped in the ring since his loss to Kell Brook in February 2022, and actually announced his retirement from boxing in May last year.

The Brit boxer has been talking about a return to the ring to face Manny Pacquiao next year
However, in an exclusive interview with Mail Sport, Khan opened the door on a return to the ring and targeted a fight against one of the sport’s biggest legends.
You’ve been hearing rumours Manny Pacquiao is in town.’ Khan said. ‘We are in talks. We’ve spoken a few times and that fight could happen. There’s a lot of interest in that fight between Manny Pacquiao and myself.
‘Manny is in town so this is where me and him will have a sit down. If it happens (the fight) here or somewhere else it would be great.’
Khan was handed a two-year ban from all sports back in April for failing a drugs test after his fight with Brook two years ago.
That ban has since been backdated to the date of his provisional suspension because he hasn’t fought since his loss to Brock – meaning it will expire in April 2024, allowing a fight with Pacquiao to take place.
