Amazing! Amir Khan Reveals Daughters Were Reason He Didn't Retire After Canelo KO

Before each training session at Virgil Hunter’s gym overlooking San Francisco Bay, Amir Khan makes the same call home.

He FaceTimes his eldest daughter, four-year-old Lamaisha, to see how she is and to chat about her day at school.

Lamaisha and her 10-month-old sister Alayna are Khan’s inspiration and he says without them he would have quit as he struggled with his hand injury after his sickening KO by Canelo Alvarez.

But his desire for them to see him in the ring drove him on and he wants them to remember him in huge contests like his April 20 showdown with Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden.

“I would have retired two years ago, but what motivated me was having children because I want them to know what their daddy is,” said Khan, who is back with Hunter for the first time since his illness.

“It’s given me a new freshness.

“But I thought of Lamaisha and I want her to remember something better than me getting knocked out by Canelo. I want her to remember a good time, not just hear about it.

“I want her to taste the thrill too. I want her to see me going to a big fight, seeing her at the hotel, giving her a little hug. I want her to remember all this when she grows up.”

Lamaisha is back home in Bolton being looked after by Khan’s family, while Alayna is with him and his wife Faryal in California.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
