BRENDAN INGLE, one of Britain’s most renowned trainers, has passed away. He was 77 years old.

He set up a boxing club in Wincobank, Sheffield for young people in the community. The gym would become an institution in British boxing. He developed his own unique training methods and in the process produced some of Britain’s most successful boxers.

He guided Naseem Hamed from childhood to the heights of a career which saw him become one of the most famous boxers in the UK. Herol Graham, regarded as Britain’s best boxer never to win a world title, was a product of his gym as was cruiserweight world champion Johnny Nelson and many more.
