They married in front of 400 people at the grand Waldorf Astoria hotel, in a ceremony that reportedly cost $1 million, according to the New York Post.

With a second celebration planned in the UK in a week's time, it marks the beginning of a new chapter for the sportsman, who stated that it was the right time to settle down and start a family.

Khan, who beat rival Julio Diaz just a month before his big day, also joked that he wanted to marry with his face reasonably intact: 'I had to get in there and tie the knot quickly, before I got beaten up in too many fights and lose my looks.'
