BOXING: Khan in plea for financial leeway.

Olympichero Amir Khan has called on the Amateur Boxing Association to assist in his dream of claiming gold in Beijing in four years' time.

Khan has turned down many offers to turn professional since his stunning performance in Athens at the age of just 17.

His team want assurances from ABA officials that the governing body's strict rules on commercial ventures will not impinge on Khan's aim to stay financially secure while he trains for China.

Khan said: ``I've got a good family supporting me. I'll get a clip round my ear if I get too big-headed. ''
