Jon Thaxton, former English professional lightweight boxer who held European and British lightweight boxing titles in a 17-year career, recalled Britain’s youngest Olympic boxing medallist, Amir Khan, also in the 2004 Athens Olympics.
He said: “When Khan won the silver in the Olympics that was so good to see, a 17-year-old kid - I never thought we’d end up becoming rivals though.
