Amir Khan may end his glittering career — but he’s firing another Bolton banger into the fighting game.
The talented teen has the same thick northern accents and realistic charm as his famous mentor.
Abdul has begun his professional career with Humphrey Harrison, the brother of Amir’s first suitable trainer.
And the 34-year-old former lightweight champion believes that Covid KO’s disciples are ready to shine after a long time of amateur boxing.
Amir said: “Abdul is a very special talent and I am very much looking forward to seeing him join the ranks of professionals.
“I’ve followed his career since his first amateur fight about seven years ago, and his potential excites me.
“The uncertainty of amateur boxing during the blockage is so great that I recommended Abdul Turn Pro.

“When I see him fight, it’s like seeing myself at that age, and there’s a special journey.”
Amir enjoyed the highest highs — and some of the toughest lows, from brutal knockouts to the dark side of fame.
Still, Abdul revealed:
“I loved it growing, especially Amir and David Haye.
“When the idea of becoming a professional began to take seriously, he gave me a lot of advice and guidance.
“I was watching Amir and he was very exciting. There was no boring fight to win or lose.
I’m really confident in Amir at the Battle of Brooke
“His my favorite fight is Marcos Maidana, where he showed such a heart and proved that he could fight fighters and defeat him in his own game.”
Amir took Abdul to Dubai for several training sessions and desert runs in August, and he went to Pad with a quick veteran.
He is currently training in Colorado as discussions continue in a December grudge match with Shefield hero Brooke, 35.
Abdul is confident that his mentor’s final dance will be successful after struggling to keep pace with his three fathers.
And his dream is to fight rival prospects from Brooke’s brilliant Ingle Jim and make the showdown a serious family issue.
The super bantamweight said: “I’m really confident in Amir at the Battle of Brooke. I’m a good runner and he outperforms me despite being older and heavier.
“I think Amir’s speed is always there, but I was surprised how fast he was still.
“People would think I’m prejudiced, but I really think he can stop Brooke.
“I was too young to go to the battle of Amir, so it would be great to get to the undercard of the first battle I could participate in.”
