About Paul Talbott
Talbott is a family man, with a passion and drive to be armwrestling's most successful Lightweight turned Middleweight. Talbott’s single mother raised him. They didn’t have much, but they had everything they needed to get by. He used everyone’s negativity to drive him in all his accomplishments in life and in the sport. He explains, “I’m not unique. I’m just a small-town guy trying to make it in this world and make my family proud.”
Paul found his first in tournament in Eastern VA online and decided to go with encouragement from his wife. He crushed the competition and placed 1st in the tournament. After winning in Eastern VA he decided to drive from Ohio to Marylyn to compete as an amateur, but to his surprise got thrown in with the pros. Despite his amateur status, he won the Left Hand professional category and has never looked back. Paul has now been competing as a professional for 8 years after only competing once as an amateur.
Talbots is married with three children.
