The boxer and his wife of four years recently had an acrimonious split and although she recently announced she is pregnant with her husband's baby, Amir says he is going ahead with a divorce.

Speaking in a new Snapchat video, he said: "So me and Faryal are not together. I have filed for a divorce.

"I hear that she has just announced that she is pregnant. She didn't tell me. I had to read it on social media.

"I'm always going to be there for my kids [if] we're not married. We're not together but my kids are everything to me.

"I don't know if it's true that she is pregnant or not, time will tell, but in the meantime I'm there for Lamaisah. She's everything to me.

"If there is another kid then I am going to be there to show my support and be there for Faryal, but we both think it's not healthy to be together.

"It's not healthy for the kids. I don't want my children to see us fighting. We are officially not together."

Amir and Faryal, 26, already have a three-year-old daughter called Lamaisah together but she is reportedly prepared to raise their unborn baby without the support of Amir.

A source said: "Faryal's announcement came as a shock to everyone involved but she doesn't want anything more from Amir now.

"They're back on speaking terms, trying to keep everything civil for the sake of their daughter and extended families, but the relationship is finished."
