Amir and Faryal tied the knot at the grand Waldorf Astoria hotel in New York City, after a week-long elaborate Muslim ceremony.

"I've lived the young life, I've done everything I've wanted to do," the boxer told HELLO! "Now is the right time to settle down and start my own family."
"I've got to look after Faryal, so I won't be going out as much partying with my friends.
