Paul Sykes, a BOXER, was regarded as one of the toughest inmates in Britain.

Sykes’ passing occurred in 2022, yet despite that, Brits are still enthralled by his crazy lifestyle. What is known about Paul Sykes is as follows:

Sykes was raised as an only child on a council estate in Wakefield, Yorkshire, where he was born on May 23, 1946.

He started boxing when he was 7 years old and immediately displayed talent.

His father, Walter, started teaching him how to box when he was a small child, although Sykes claimed afterwards that this had a bad impact on him.

When I was seven years old, I was learning how to box on Tuesday, Thursday, and Sunday morning. He said: “How can your dad love you if he allows this to happen to you three or four times a week?”

Sykes’ mum, Betty, also hinted that Walter was partly at fault for her son’s aggression.

“I’ve been used to brutality with my husband – perhaps that’s why Paul thinks he’s got to use force because his dad’s always used force,” she explained.

During the 1970s and 1980s, Sykes was regarded as one of the UK’s most challenging inmates.

At the age of 17, he was sentenced to prison for the first time. Over the next two years, he received 22 additional convictions.

Sykes was imprisoned for a total of 18 different prison terms as a result of multiple violent assaults.

In his 60 years of life, Sykes served 26 years in prison.

Although Sykes had “a wonderful warm cell” and “all the literature he could read,” he claimed that prison was “easier than being at home.”

How did Paul Sykes die?

Sykes died from pneumonia and liver cirrhosis in March 2007 at the age of 60.
