Unsung Hero – Adrian Fleming

Each Friday we pay homage to a boxing ‘unsung hero’. The lifeblood of the sport - the men and women who have contributed so much and asked for so little, who have saved lives and transformed futures.

This week we turn our attention to Adrian Fleming, head coach at Leigh ABC in Greater Manchester. The club continues to be a great success, working with thousands of young people of all abilities, from novice to elite.

Leigh ABC boasts more than 80 ABA titlists along with countless internationals and those that have gone on to careers in the professional ranks including Isaac Lowe, Marcus Morrison and Jack Catterall.

The club also works tirelessly in the community to encourage young people to get off the streets and into a safe and healthy environment.

Nominating Adrian, Timperley ABC head coach Mark Davidson said: “He’s been in the coaching game for decades, he’s had numerous champions and has done so much. He’s helped so many kids - boys and girls.

“He’s turned so many lives around and is a great coach. Adrian is certainly an unsung hero.”

Along with his club commitments, Adrian is highly regarded on the international scene and is part of the England coaching set-up.
