Brendan Ingle MBE & Dean Francis


The British Boxing Board of Control are deeply saddened by the passing of two well respected men of our Sport.

Brendan Ingle MBE was a great influence to many young people throughout Boxing and his community and will always be remembered not only for his achievements in Boxing but for his timeless work for charities and the good of the people.

Dean was a great Champion, who unfortunately through injury didn’t reach, what many believed his true status as a World Champion. His achievements, however, were many and he is a great loss not only to the Sport but to all who knew him.

The British Boxing Board of Control extends its condolences to the Ingle and Francis families at this difficult time.
