''I'm turning pro'' says Amir Khan's brother Haroon

For years he's been Amir Khan's biggest fan - now comes the chance to step from his shadow.

Amir's 20-year-old little brother Haroon Khan is ready to join boxing's elite by turning professional.

And Amir says he will be in his sibling's corner as his promoter.

It's been more than eight years since Granada Reports first unearthed Amir's sporting sibling, when Haroon joked that one day he would fight his brother.

He was snubbed by Team GB for the 2010 Commonealth Games, but went on to win Commonwealth bronze with Pakistan - after defeating the man the GB selectors chose in front of him.

And Haroon's revealed one of his biggest battles was winning over his mum to the fact that another of her sons was becoming a professional boxer.

For the record, the Khans box at different weights - Haroon at flyweight, Amir at Light Welterweight - so it's highly unlikely they could ever fight each other.

But the verbal battle over who's best will last a lifetime.
