Johnny Nelson has led the tributes to Brendan Ingle after the revered boxing trainer's death at the age of 77.

Nelson was one of four world champion boxers, along with Naseem Hamed, Junior Witter and Clinton Woods, who was trained by Ingle at the Wincobank Gym in Sheffield. 

In an Instagram post on Friday, Nelson wrote: "On this 1 occasion I am using social media to inform People a good good man has left this earth today. A good friend. A good father figure.. AND THE BEST TRAINER IN THE WORLD."

Referencing a famous quote attributed to Roman emperor Marcus Aurelius - 'a person's worth is measured by the worth of what he values' - Nelson added: "This is who I class as a true legend BRENDAN INGLE MBE RIP."

Ingle's sons, Dominic and John, continue to train fighters at the Wincobank Gym, including the likes of Kell Brook and Billy Joe Saunders.

Former lightweight world champion Anthony Crolla wrote on Twitter: "Just seen the sad news about Brendan Ingle. What he created at the Wincobank gym with his sons and others is a very special piece in British Boxing history. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. #rip."
