Norman (Nobby) Nobbs, (born 1948 or 1949), is a boxing manager and trainer in Aston, Birmingham, England. Nobbs's stable contains many of the most prolific tomato cans in England, and is referred to and by Nobbs himself as "Losers Unlimited."

Nobbs briefly tried to box as a kid, before finding out that he was not any good. By his early 20s, he began training boxers. One of the most notable fighters he has worked with is British journeyman Peter Buckley.

Towards the end of 2007, Nobbs lost his gym in Birmingham, and appears to have drifted away from the sport.
