Many athletes are known for their strapping style off the field, but within the arena even the most hedonistic players usually keep it simple. British boxer Amir Khan is looking to change the game however, by donning what might be the most expensive shorts in sporting history for his upcoming match against Devon Alexander at the MGM Grand Garden in Las Vegas. Made of white nappa leather with a croc trim, the shorts feature a waistband crafted with 24 carat gold thread and are supposedly worth anything between £20,000 and £30,000 that’s a max value of over $47,000! Sophie Whittam the designer behind Fight Label the company that made the shorts, stated that they might well be the most expensive shorts ever made.
This won’t be the first time that Khan has sported luxe threads for a fight, for a recent media workout he wore shorts bedazzled with nothing short of 1000 swarovski crystals and created from what Whittam called, “Versace material.” But sparkly shorts aren’t the only thing on Khan’s mind, he recently stated that he wants to win the fight so that he can gain a name for himself overseas and make his baby daughter proud. Isn’t that sweet?
