Amir and Faryal spoke about their relationship

I was in England, he was in Dubai, he thought he was a bit cool in Dubai doing some tweets." Amir added: "Going through the hand injury that I had, not being in the boxing ring, being away from my family, going through a lot of stuff in my life, I think the best place for me is to be in the boxing ring. When I was away from that, it took me all over the place. I lost that focus and that structure. Not being in the gym, not training, when you have all that downtime you have all that energy in your body."
