Default Robert McCracken

I need to do some research on Robert McCracken for someone. I know about his own professional career and that he's Carl Froch's trainer.

But does anyone know who else he's trained and anything else about his boxing backgroundf?

McCracken went as far as European LM champ, & at one time had a tremendous unbeaten run.. Over 30 fights, I think.. He was eventually derailed by Howard Eastman at Middle, who he went on to train.. Not sure if this is still the case, or whether Eastman is still active.. It's fair to say that McCracken spent a few years as a top European class fighter.. He had a massive local following, from his home city of Birmingham UK, who would often 'kick off' at some of his fights.. McCracken himself, has always been a gentleman, & by all accounts, is now doing well as a trainer, but I'd imagine someone like Froch does his own kind of training lol..

Thanks. Sounds like he is doing well as a trainer and coach under Hennessey sports. Mick Hennessey is looking at signing an amateur who is sponsored by someone i know so i guess McCracken is part of the deal to maybe train him. Just read him and Richie Woodhall are trainers for the next Team GB at the 2012 Olympics.

That's a bit of a pisser. Maybe he had to turn to boxing because his brothers were such cunts.

I like Rob McCracken though, he cracked me up in the Taylor fight: 'Do me a favour, don't throw that silly hook again.'

Froch threw it again and got nailed again in the next round.

'You see, what happened there don't you. You done it again didn't you.'

It reminds of the time my girlfriend continues to moan at me about doing the washing-up, and saying 'I keep telling you, but you never learn.'

classic ****.

There was another instance when Froch got nailed again, and McCracken was silent like a disappointed parent, and Froch actually started speaking first.

McCracken was another great thing about a great fight, if I was a fighter, I'd want him as my trainer.
