Khan entered the packed venue to the refrain “Here Comes the Champ” and stopped to greet well-wishers and pose for photographs with fans on the way to his table. He then stood up on a riser beside his table raising his hands in triumph to the thunderous applause of the crowd.
Dressed in designer jeans and a form-fitting blue polo shirt, a relaxed Khan did not look like someone who had just knocked out Zab Judah in one of the most anticipated title fights of the year.
International R&B superstar, Jay Sean, known for his smash hits “Down” and “Do You Remember” and for being the UK’s biggest YouTube artist, helped lead the club in toasting the champion. Jay Sean was dressed in white. Looking elegant in a silk shirt and slacks, Andrew Bynum of the Los Angeles Lakers basketball team was enjoying the scene and also toasting the champion. The group enjoyed Belvedere Vodka, Veuve Clicquot Champagne and Rockstar energy drinks.
Also at Club Nikki was Marshawn Lynch of the Seattle Seahawks football team. Lynch was with a large group of friends. Dressed in jeans and a short sleeve shirt, Lynch enjoyed Hennessy cognac.
