Boxing fans ruin Amir Khan after his first tweet on I'm A Celebrity, Get Me Out Of Here

It's been a strange few years for Amir Khan.

It seems a lifetime ago that the Bolton-born fighter was lighting up the Olympics as a fresh-faced 17-year-old bringing home a silver medal for Great Britain.

13 years later, Khan finds himself as a contestant on ITV's reality show 'I'm a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here'.

And yet, he was only calling out Floyd Mayweather a few months ago, arguably the greatest boxer of all-time.

Khan has also been dealing with serious marital problems in the past few months and back in August, he announced that he and his wife, Faryal, had split.

During that period of time, he also wrongly accused Anthony Joshua of having an affair with her. However, in the past few days, the pair have confirmed that their marriage is back on.

Khan posted his first tweet about appearing on I'm a Celeb on Sunday evening and the boxing community sure had a lot to say.

Now, it's almost certain that Khan wasn't the one who actually posted the tweet as the show is recorded 24 hours in advance and the former world champion would have already been participating in the show.

However, that didn't stop some ruthless comments coming his way. Take a look at some of the replies below:

Khan has been looking to secure a big box office fight in recent years and both of Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao have been fighters that the 30-year-old has chased.

However, after losing via knockout to Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez, Khan's stock is hardly at its highest.

A domestic showdown with Kell Brook has long been speculated too, but Khan appears to want too much money to take on the former IBF welterweight champion of the world.

It's worth mentioning at this point that despite all of the criticism coming Khan's way, David Haye did take part in the same show and ended up making a comeback to the ring.

He's on course to face Tony Bellew for the second time before the close of 2017 in what will surely be a big money, all-British showdown.

Khan could do with some of those himself.
