Meet the ‘badass’ hijab boxing coach helping women

Latest news

    An amateur boxing coach who became the first in the UK to wear a hijab is hoping to inspire more women to get involved in sport.

    Zahra Butt, 39, also incorporates life-coaching into her boxing classes.

    The mother-of-three, from Nottingham, took up the sport after being diagnosed with post-natal depression.

    Zahra, who is the only coach to qualify with the Amateur Boxing Association (ABA) to wear the traditional Muslim headscarf, holds one-to-one coaching sessions, including for women who have been victims of domestic abuse.
