We’ll discuss his Olympics performance, the move to professional boxing, his relationship with the public, and what it’s like to perform at the highest level in the world of boxing,” said McHardy about his upcoming talk with Khan.
“It’s going to be a full warts-and-all look of his life inside and outside the ring, and should prove to be a fascinating evening and conversation with the man himself,” McHardy added.
