Man who 'helped armed gang steal £72k watch from Amir Khan' claims he didn't ... trends now
An alleged robber accused of helping steal a £72,000 diamond-encrusted watch from former world boxing champion Amir Khan said he was 'shocked' when he found out about the theft.
Mr Khan, 36, was targeted for his bespoke rose gold Franck Muller Vanguard Chronograph as he dined with wife Faryal, 31, and friend Omar Khalid at the Sahara Grill in Leyton.
An armed robber ran at Khan and yelled at him to 'take off the watch' on April 18 last year.
Jurors have heard the 'gunman' Dante Campbell, 21, along with Ahmed Bana, 25, have admitted conspiracy to rob and possession of an imitation firearm.
CCTV footage previously played to jurors showed the moment Mr Khan was robbed

Amin and Mohammed were said to be 'spotters' who sat at a table a few feet away from Mr Khan, his wife and Mr Khalid in the eatery.
But Mohammed has told the court he did not 'personally know who Amir Khan was.'
He said that he found out who he was when people started taking selfies with him.
