He joked: "I had to get in there and tie the knot quickly, before I got beaten up in too many fights and lose my looks."

Khan, who beat rival Julio Diaz in the ring just weeks ago, went on: "I've lived the young life, I've done everything I've wanted to do. 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. I don't want that any more - I want to do the family thing."

The boxer - pictured with his new bride wearing elaborately stitched red and gold robes - told the magazine: "I think I'll change as a person when I'm married and it'll be a big plus for me, I'll be able to be more focused on my job too."

The new Mrs Khan also spoke of her joy, and about her forthcoming move to Bolton in the feature, spread across 16 pages.

"I'm so happy to be with the man I love and to spend the rest of my life with him - it's a new chapter in my life," she said.

The full interview appears in the new edition of Hello! magazine, which is out now.
