Amir Khan's Angry Young Men

Olympic silver medalist Amir Khan defies stereotypes. Not many British Muslims are celebrated as heroes but the televised fights of this 20-year-old boxer command audiences of millions.

Now he has decided to give something back. Over four intensive weeks, Amir and his team take six young men with a history of violent behaviour, and use the discipline of boxing to try to channel their aggression and turn their lives around. Amir Khan also introduces the men to the values of his family and faith, to give them a sense of right and wrong. It's an opportunity none of them can afford to miss. This is their last chance to get off the track that leads to prison or death on the streets.

Broadcasting Station: Channel 4
