At 19 Amir has already become a hero. Transcending age, race, and colour he is an iconic performer who first won the hearts of the British public winning a silver medal at the 2004 Athens Olympics Games. We see that amazing performance and join Amir in his re-march with the legendary Cuban Mario Kindelan, followed by his move into the professional ranks. In Amir's first seven pro fights he sold out venues in Bolton, Cardiff, Glasgow, Nottingham, London and Belfast, and enthralled the crowds with his brilliant performances. With hard-hitting fight action, revealing footage and interviews from inside the Khan camp, Amir Khan: A Work In Progress gives a real insight into what it takes to be the best in the toughest sport of all, and just why Amir has become a British icon.
