When he was just 9 years old he remembers watching boxing legend Muhammad Ali light the Olympic flame at the Atlanta Games, and Khan says he's honored to be involved with the torch this time around. He said, "It is an honor for me to hold the torch, especially in the streets where I was growing up. Not many boxers get the chance to do this and I am one of the few."
