True, few young lads i coach heard the story after he beat Khan maybe cos of it being on Sky etc. So even if it's a few his story got to it could of changed there outlook on there life. He'd of been type of guy i'd of brought over to do workshops with kids to try stop them going into crime. His story hasn't changed but it's tarnished it.
