Larry King: Are you training?


Amir Khan: I am training, yeah, I’ve started. I’ve just come off the month of Ramadan, so I’m now getting back into the gym because the fast was so long, you can’t eat or drink anything, I couldn’t really train because in Ramadan you’re not allowed to eat or drink anything so...They were literally for 18 hours long in the UK, and then you have 4, 5 hours off to eat. In that 4, 5 hours you can only eat once.
