I have known Paul Vaden for over fifteen years. When you first meet Paul you realize he is a humble, modest and
respectful man who is easy to talk with and who is as interested in learning about you, as you are in learning about him…I have yet to come across a person who knows Paul who doesn’t think as highly about him as I do.

Japan's Women's Basketball National Team Head Coach
"Never underestimate the heart of a champion”…. Paul Vaden is a champion. I knew that before I met him over 20 years ago. What I’ve learned since then, is that being a World Champion boxer is just a small part of the man I know. Paul’s positive contribution to society after retiring from boxing is what stands out to me. He is tireless. From running charities, speaking to large groups of school kids, inspiring current athletes, or just being there for a friend, Paul’s message, passion and compassion resonates and positively affects everyone he meets.
Director of Athletics at UC San Diego
Paul’s presentation to our UC San Diego Student – Athletes was very inspirational and motivating as we get ready to take on the challenge of moving to Division 1. When Paul addressed the major challenges that he overcame in his career and life, it really emphasized his resiliency which resonated with my athletes because we talk about that often.
Paul is an amazing person and a great friend. His honest stories make him a very inspirational speaker who can easily catch anyone's attention. His life story is fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone to meet him!
