    Default Most celebrated boxing coach of all time.

    I believe that behind every great boxer is a great and talented coach.We should also have a list of great boxing coaches. I wonder who is the most most talented (best) coach of all time? Name your pick.

    The egendary John Walsh, University of Wisconsin, boxing coach, won 8 NCAA team championships and 38 individual titles from 1933 to 1960. He was acclaimed a true genius back then. I used to travel to Madison from Northern Illinois to watch his fighters train so I could pick up pointers as an amature in Chicago.

    wow. you really know something about boxing. Not many "boxing enthusiasts" can readily pinpoint a good boxing coach. All they know are the boxers. cc from me.

    For me, I think people like Eddie Futch, Chappie Blackburn and maybe Emmanuel Stewart are up there?

    Charley Goldman also did a sterling job on Marciano, considering what he had to start with.

    Do trainers really deserve credit, they can help a fighter but ultimately it is the fighter that makes the name of the trainer, and trainers now can pick and choose their fighters like consultants and get fame and fortune for comming in 2 weeks before a fight.

    A fighter is nothing without training, il swear by that. But i dont agree with this switching of trainers every fight, it jus doesn't seem nurturing to start with a new coach every time.

    The reality is that in front of every great trainer is a least one great fighter and it is the fighters that make the great trainers stand out.

    I'd agree to some extent (an example Dan Birmingham.) But then there's the trainers like Enzo Calzaghe who has a stable of home grown champs, like Joe C, Enzo Mac, Bradley Price, Gavin Rees n a heap of young guys he's all trained himself, so id say its more of a symbiotic relationship than u see it...Trainers need Fighters, Fighters need trainers

    People give Cus D'Mato a ton of credit...a little too much for my taste
