Between then and 1850 he was largely undefeated in the boxing ring, and gained a reputation not only for his courageousness but for his foul tactics and uncontrollable temper.[1] It was William Thompson of Nottingham who spoilt his clean record in 1850 in Mildenhall, Suffolk.[3] In 1851 a fight against Harry Poulson in Belper ended in a riot when both men were jailed. Both served ten months hard labour.[3] Three years later Paddock challenged both Harry Broome and Bill Perry to a Heavyweight Championship of England bout but both turned it down. Paddock then claimed himself as the Heavyweight Champion of England by default,[3] though this wasn't generally recognised until 1856 following fifty one rounds in the ring against Harry Broome in Manningtree.[4] However his victory was short lived; he lost the title later the same year to Bill Perry.[1] He attempted to regain the title twice but never actually managed it.[3] Paddock's last fight took place in 1860.[3] He died of heart disease on 30 June 1863 in Marylebone.[1][5] A book on Paddock's fighting life is currently being penned by Tom Podmore, a freelance boxing writer from Redditch.
