Undisputedly, one of the best boxers of his generation, Barry McGuigan was an entertainer in the ring and a leader outside of it. 

As an amateur, McGuigan won a multitude of titles and at the tender age of 17 he took the gold medal at the1978 Commonwealth Games and as a professional he won the British, European and World titles.

On June, 8th 1985, in front of a crowd of over 27,000 and a television audience of over twenty million, McGuigan achieved his dream and became Featherweight Champion of the World by defeating Eusebio Pedroza.

He was later awarded BBC Sports Personality of the Year, and voted into the World and International Boxing Hall of Fame.

Now retired, Barry remains closely entwined with boxing. He is a mentor and manager to a stable of fighters, with a focus on identifying young talent, building a support team and developing their abilities to not only become best in class but also responsible roles models in society. He is also founder of the Professional Boxing Association.

McGuigan’s heritage and incredible career during the most difficult of circumstances make him a renowned and much sought after speaker.
