Former Boxing world champion Amir Khan has launched ‘Ring the Changes’ – an initiative aimed at addressing youth crime in London.

Operated in partnership with online financial trading broker ThinkMarkets, the programme will support initiatives to help young children get off the streets using financial education and the power of boxing.

Khan will work with ThinkMarkets to secure employment in the City for 100 young people from disadvantaged families by 2022 and is planning to collaborate with an amateur boxing club to provide inspirational talks and fundraising activities to support its members.

The boxer said the initiative has been partly set up in response to what has been one of the most violent year's in London's history, with more than 100 young people murdered in the capital during 2018.

“ThinkMarkets have ambitious plans to address youth crime and together I am confident that we can make a real difference through our ‘Ring the Changes’ initiative.

“I faced challenges as a young man and I’ve been fortunate that boxing has given me opportunities and a support network that has helped me throughout my life.

"Not everyone is as fortunate as I have been and alongside my boxing career, I want to do some good in the world, helping young people.

“As a sportsman in the public eye, young people may be more inclined to listen to me than to people they don’t know and if I can pass on any guidance or help with opportunities that change even just one person’s life for the better, I will be very proud.”
