TEAM KHAN is a fly-on-the-wall documentary about British superstar boxer Amir Khan. Outside of the ring Amir must grapple with the significance of family, fame, and religion, as he grows from being boxing’s golden child into a professional fighter. As an amateur, he won a silver medal in the lightweight division at the 2004 Olympics, becoming Britain’s youngest boxing Olympic medalist at the age of 17. He turned professional at 19, and within four years became a world champion at light-welterweight. He was boxing’s rising star, a UK phenomenon who had made the leap to the big pond of US boxing. He was the man to beat, until he was beat, and beat again. He has recently returned to the ring, winning his last two fights. He’s confident he can become a world champion once again.
