BOXING superstar Amir Khan is building the UK’s first wedding mall in his hometown of Bolton, Greater Manchester, it was announced on Thursday (14).

The 32-year-old has spent £5million refurbishing the venue, which will be a one-stop destination for all wedding needs. The mall will also include a rooftop shisha bar and a number of restaurants, a spokesperson for Khan said.

“Amir is finishing off the wedding hall and we are hoping to have it all complete by August 2020,” the spokesperson added.
