    Paul Wheel - The World Champion Of Champions

    Hey there guys,

    I dont know that much about / MMA /UFC, etc,

    I just wanted to know how many of you know / rate - Paul Wheel.

    He runs the Dojo Gym in Swansea.

    He is good mates and has trained alongside former World Champion boxer Enzo Maccarinelli.

    Apparantly Wheel claims he started training in martial arts from just 3 years old - a amazing early age.

    Looks like it all paid off though.........

    As - in 1996 - he was crowned - The World Champion Of World Champions

    However I searched for info on him on google - and found very little information.

    Could not find his record.

    Could not find who he beat to become World Champion of Champions.

    Was this guy really the Number 1 fighter out of all of the world back in the 1990's ?

    Surely for a fighter who had such a lofty status - I thought info would be easier to come by.

    So what do you make of this former fighter - this is the link to the only info I could get of the guy...................

    Welcome to Bullshido.

    Now, we will start small:

    Please post a link to where Mr. Wheel makes some of these claims you are attributing to him.

    Thank you

    Edit, OK, you put up a link to his instructor Bio referring to "Paul has competed at many levels winning world champion of champions in 1994"

    So, next question, have you trained with Mr. Wheel or do you train at another school?

    I dont train in martial arts.

    I am more into boxing.

    But I am from Swansea- and didnt realise that there was a martial artist who was once World Champion of all Champions from Swansea.

    But I was interested if you could confirm if Mr Wheel was indeed number 1 in the world back in the 1990's

    and who did he beat to win such a high honour belt ?

    his gym offers boxing as well

    Have you had any interaction with anyone from that gym, before?

    But I was interested if you could confirm if Mr Wheel was indeed number 1 in the world back in the 1990's

    have you tried contacting him and asking, what with you being in the same town and all?

    Really the best place to start if you can't find any reference online of him winning his claimed titles would be the "Contact Us" page on their school's website.

    WPTDojo@hotmail.co.uk
    That's the school's e-mail address. You can send them a message in a tone that would be of you wanting to inquire about their school and credentials.

    Or better yet, you can call them.
    07515605435
    Is their listed telephone number.

    But if you want the best means of finding out information and learning about how legitimate they are, seeing as you live in the same town as them you could stop by the gym and inquire about some trial classes. While doing that you can strike conversation with Mr. Wheel face to face, which will be a much more easy way of getting all the information you desire.

    I did some basic google-fu and the only references I found to his champion status are from his own website(s). There was also a boxing forum that talked about this a little bit, and they mentioned that they should take up their claims with Bullshido:
    http://www.eastsideboxing.com/forum/...=248877&page=2

    So FLINT ISLAND, are you White Tiger on that forum?

    To me, it looks like Paul Wheel is making fraudulent claims. He has no record on Sherdog (which doesn't mean much since his thing is muay thai, not MMA). You'd think a world champion (or even better, a world champion of champions) would have some governing body list it on an easily found website, and he doesn't mention any organization that he fought in, which I believe is pretty standard.

    He lists that he's certified with the British Boxing Board of Control, so that should be easy enough to check. I'll send them a little email.
