British boxer Amir Khan has disclosed that he regrets accusing two-time heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua of having an affair with his wife, Faryal Makhdoom.

The lightweight champion back in 2017 accused AJ of infidelity.

Anthony Joshua denied the allegations and the claims resulted in a feud between the two British boxers.

In a recent interview with former Manchester United legend Gary Neville via his Overlap podcast show, the Lightweight champion expressed regret at the allegation he levelled against the former heavyweight champion some five years ago.

Khan admitted that the allegations were unfounded, and he lost a good friend in Anthony Joshua through that.

"I had the problem with Anthony Joshua which I feel really bad for because at the end of the day I put him in the firing line for no reason," he confessed.

"I mean he was a friend of mine and since then we’ve never spoken. So, I lost a good friend through that as well.

Khan and Makhdoom are still married, the couple celebrated their 9th marriage anniversary earlier this year.
