Mayweather replied: ‘What’s going on Amir? We are in Dubai.

Grinning from ear to ear, Amir said, “We’re in Dubai doing this thing.”

‘Absolutely. Nothing but love,’ Mayweather added.

Mayweather will compete in an exhibition bout against undefeated fighter Don Moore this weekend as part of the Global Titans Fight series.

The highly anticipated face-off will take place on the helipad of the luxurious Burj Al Arab hotel.

Speaking at a recent press conference, Mayweather said: “It will be a great event. Great turnout and I’m just glad you know.

“I’ve been here so many times so I can travel the world and people embrace me with open arms, from Africa to Japan to Brazil.”

The outing comes after Amir had his £72,000 diamond-encrusted watch stolen at gunpoint in east London last month.

The Olympic silver medalist and his wife Faryal Makhdoom, 30, were crossing the road in Leyton when two thugs rushed in and pointed a gun at his face while demanding the Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph.

Amir put the watch back on and the thieves rushed into a car, but the incident shook them both. The boxer said late last month he felt “very unsafe” in London “because it’s very dangerous”.

He blamed Sadiq Khan for the scare, telling MailOnline the Mayor of London has failed to tackle crime in the capital and must ‘pull his finger off’.

Amir also told ITV’s Good Morning Britain: “You know, even after this happened, I was still in London for another two days, and I was walking around and I was very scared.”

“I’m thinking, ‘I don’t have any watch on me now, God forbid someone running into me in the alleys. And honestly, I don’t feel safe walking around London…England…because it’s very dangerous.

Violent crime is on the rise under Sadiq Khan in London, according to official figures released by the Mayor’s Office for Policing and Crime in January.

This data revealed that there were 233,965 ‘violence against the person’ offenses recorded by the Metropolitan Police in 2021 – up 6.1% or 13,358 from 220,607 in 2020.

Amir has decided not to move to London, which was the family’s original plan, and instead they will continue to live in his hometown.

He said: “London is no longer a place I want to live. Our plan to move there is not realized. We will continue to live in our home in Bolton and spend time in Dubai.

Shocking: Amir and Faryal recently appeared on ITV’s Good Morning Britain today to talk about the ordeal
