Join My Campaign to Get Muhammad Ali's Greatness Inside and Outside the Ring Recognised With an Honourary Knighthood

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.

I think of this adrenaline rush as my friend when I am speaking, because it provides me with the energy boost to give a performance. The way I see it, adrenaline enables my brain to be fractionally ahead of my mouth, so I'm preparing the next sentence before I get to it.

Hardly Worth a Rumble - Mayweather v Pacquiao

Jack Banister | Posted 04.05.2016 | UK Universities & Education
Jack Banister

Boxing is sport in its rawest, most primitive form - two men, in a cage, trying to beat each into next Christmas, until one of them falls down and can't get up. It is a mind numbingly simple equation. Mayweather v Pacquiao didn't offer us much more than that brutality. It's a sign of how boxing has fallen.

His legendary athleticism was spawned from a training schedule that would frighten most people to death: his long early morning runs were merely gentle precursors to the day's activities. He didn't even consider it part of the training, merely an add on.

Those who didn't like Ali dismissed him as all mouth. Many who write off Obama make a similar point. All he can do is talk, they will say, great at campaigning but not at leading. They're wrong. Never have Barack Obama's gifts as a communicator been as needed by America as they are right now.
