Billy Joe Saunders won’t rule out starring in his own Amir Khan-esque reality TV show after his clash with Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez. But so focused has the Hatfield hitman been on the biggest night of his fighting life that he refused to entertain the idea of a fly-on-the-wall documentary leading up to Saturday’s clash. “ITV actually approached me to do something out here,” said Saunders, who has found himself in hot water with boxing’s authorities through the years over some of his antics that have been caught on camera. “They wanted to film me here in Las Vegas, building up to the fight, and then carry on back at home. “It was a lot of money they offered me as well but I didn’t need the distraction. “If I am not having my kids around as a nice distraction then how can I have a load of strangers with cameras? “I would rather have my kids distracting me, rather than a load of strangers with a camera in my face. “Maybe afterwards, maybe so, but let’s get this fight out … [Read more...] about Billy Joe Saunders open to Amir Khan-style reality show after Canelo Alvarez blockbuster
Becoming parents wasn’t easy for me and Steve. We had to overcome infertility, but through IVF and adoption we were lucky to realise our dream of having a family. While pregnant with my son Zac I read a few parenting books, most of which focused on how to physically look after a baby – sleeping and feeding issues. But in those early years, my parenting style towards Zac and my daughter Amara mainly drew on how I was raised. I look back and feel guilty about all the times I shouted at the kids, when I didn’t have time to play with them and was impatient that they weren’t quick enough at learning, getting ready or even eating.

And after a year with such unprecedented challenges, never has it been more crucial to understand how to give your children the very best start in life. That means not only attending to … [Read more...] about Saira Khan reveals how Kate Silverton helped her be better mum and let kids flourish

Fishmongers' Hall terrorist Usman Khan claimed he was "rebuked" by extremist preacher Abu Hamza for calling non-believers "dirty", an inquest jury has heard. Khan claimed he told Hamza he had "mellowed and lost his edge", Khan's theological mentor said. The mentor, referred to at the inquest as TM, said the story came up at his first meeting with Khan. In handwritten notes from 18 April 2019, four months after Khan's release from Whitemoor Category A prison, TM wrote that Khan told him Hamza "rebuked me" for referring to non-believers as "dirty kuffar [infidels]". The notes added, quoting Khan: "I was young, angry, brash. He had changed. I lost some respect for him then but now see he had reviewed and realised he had regrets about his previous behaviour."
