Inside Lines: Amir's brother 'Baby Khan' is set to box for Pakistan in 2012

After Amir Khan's decision to decamp to the United States as boxing's new Golden Boy, Britain may lose his younger brother, Haroon, who, after being omitted from the GB squads being groomed for the London Olympics, is believed to be in negotiations to box for Pakistan in 2012. An outstanding 18-year-old amateur bantamweight who captained Young England, he was tipped by WBA light-welter champion Amir to emulate him and win an Olympic medal, but if he does it seems it could be in the colours of the country where their father Shah was born. After being overlooked for both the 21-strong GB podium and 11-man development squads named recently by performance director Rob McCracken, I understand that Haroon, who like Amir was born and brought up in Bolton, and Shah have been in discussion about the possibility of him boxing for Pakistan in 2012. This was the route Amir himself threatened to take when it seemed he was not going to be picked by the Amateur Boxing Association for the 2004 Athens Games because he was considered too young. The Khans are disappointed that Haroon, aka Harry, whose shorts are emblazoned "Baby Khan" and who has won most of his 70-odd bouts as well as several junior titles, has not been picked for either squad, in which there is considerable strength in depth at his weight. But McCracken says: "This is not a closed shop and if someone performs well in competition and shows they have the ability and dedication to make the grade they can force their way in."
