It may not surprise you to know that Muhammad Ali was a huge influence on my career. I used to watch every Ali fight and documentary I could lay my hands on. Not only was he a phenomenal boxer, he is a moral person who has always stood up for what he believes in. Last week I launched a campaign for the great man to receive an Honorary Knighthood and the reception to the idea has been incredible. The petition is aiming for 25,000 signatures and in less than a week we've managed to get over 18,000. I'm very confident that soon we'll be able to reach the 100,000 that it requires to be discussed in Parliament.
