Boxing sensation Amir Khan will take part in a new Channel 4 series where he will try to help six troubled young men whose violent and antisocial behaviour is spiraling out of control.

The Commonwealth lightweight champion will star in a three-part series entitled ‘Amir Khan’s Angry Young Men’, to be aired on August 21.

Amir explained why he wanted to make this series: “I just wanted to give them a chance, in a way; those six angry young men. They’ve had a tough life, and they wanted to change their lives around. Boxing is the toughest sport out there, and it’s going to give them discipline and help them to control their lives better.”

Amir will use the discipline required in boxing to help them turn their lives around in just four weeks.
