John Conteh (b. 1951) is a British former boxer who was world light-heavyweight boxing champion. He started boxing at age 10 at the Kirkby club that was a training ground for some of the best amateur boxers, Joey Singleton, Tucker Hetherington and Stuart Morton were only a few. At 19, he won the middleweight gold medal at the 1970 British Commonwealth Games. In 1973, Conteh was one of the celebrities featured dressed in prison gear on the cover of the Wings album Band on the Run. He won the WBC Light Heavyweight crown in October 1974 by defeating Jorge Ahumada and held the title until 1977. He retired from professional boxing in 1980. His professional record is 34 wins, 1 draw, and 4 losses. Conteh is now an after-dinner speaker and speaks at venues all across the country.
