One of Britain’s most renowned boxing trainers, the Irishman trained four world champions including Johnny Nelson and Naseem Hamed. Ingle died peacefully in the city’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital at 7.40am this morning. A former professional boxer himself, he set up a boxing club in Wincobank to help young people in the local community and the gym became a breeding ground for some of Britain’s most successful boxers.

He trained Prince Naseem Hamed from childhood and Herol ‘Bomber’ Graham, regarded as Britain’s best boxer never to win a world title, was also a product of the gym.

“A good friend. A good father figure… AND THE BEST TRAINER IN THE WORLD”

“A person’s worth is measured by the worth of what he values – Marcus Aurelius… BRENDAN INGLE MBE RIP”

Born in Dublin in 1940, he was awarded an MBE in 1998 and also has an honorary doctorate from Sheffield Hallam University.

The gym is now run by sons Dominic and John Ingle and continues to produce quality fighters such as Kell Brook and Billy Joe Saunders.
