British boxing champion Amir Khan is currently holidaying in Dubai.

The former unified light-welterweight world champion is in the emirate to celebrate his wife Faryal Makhdoom’s birthday.

The pair touched down in the city over the weekend after Khan revealed his plans to hold a “big celebration” for Makhdoom in Dubai on Instagram.

True to his word, the couple spent Monday celebrating on a yacht, with the Dubai skyline as a backdrop.

Joined by friends including Dubai entrepreneur and founder of OJ Lifestyle, Omar Jackson, Khan and Makhdoom celebrated with an extravagant chocolate fudge cake made by Sadia’s Kitchen, as well as a special food delivery from Cove Beach, brought to the yacht by speedboat.

The couple also dined at Dubai Marina’s Marbaiya Restaurant and Cafe during their visit, where the boxer was welcomed with a huge image of himself projected on to the venue’s big screens.

Khan also shared a picture with his 1.3 million followers of himself relaxing in front of the Burj Al Arab at Jumeirah Al Naseem.

British-Pakistani Khan is a two-time world champion in boxing and in 2004, at the age of 17, became Britain’s youngest boxing Olympic medallist.

He and Makhdoom, a Pakistani-American businesswoman who hails from Staten Island, New York, have been married since 2013. The pair share three children.
