"Bob used to meet champions on level terms and you had the feeling that secretly he believed he could beat you." - Sammy McCarthy


Bob has worked for many years as a boxing trainer, his most recent success story being Crawford Ashley. But during the 'Fifties and 'Sixties he was a boxing legend in his own llifetime, not as a fighter but as a sparring partner. In fact Bob Paget sparred with everybody, from Terry Spinks and Sammy McCarthy to Terry Downes, Dave Charnley and Henry Cooper. Most recently he has worked as activities organiser and fundraiser for the Freddie Mills club and Angels with Dirty Faces charity events.
