    • Prince Naseem: To be honest, Amir Khan is a different weight to me and I think he is going to get bigger – but there is one thing that I have always stuck to and I always will do; I will never fight another Muslim. I might spar with him or teach him a few tricks but – even if there was a billion dollars on the line – I would never get in the ring with another Muslim. It is against my principles.
