Bilal Kelvin Fawaz defends his title - and immigration status

A London based boxing champion, at the heart of a long running immigration row, is set to defend his title this weekend whilst continuing his fight to remain in the UK.

Bilal Kelvin Fawaz has represented England in his sport, but has never had a valid immigration status, since being trafficked from Nigeria as a child.

He is hoping to hold on to his Queensbury British title at the Troxy on Saturday evening.
