Details: Product Description The inspirational memoir of the Canadian boxer who fought some of the greatest heavyweights in history, including Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier, but lost everything outside the ring From a tough Toronto childhood as the only son of immigrant parents, through a twenty-three-year career that earned him induction into the World Boxing Hall of Fame, to the public tragedies that decimated his family long after the cheering stopped, George Chuvalo tells his life story as only he can. Chuvalo traded punches with several all-time greats—Joe Frazier, George Foreman and, most famously, Muhammad Ali (twice)—yet in nearly one hundred bouts, he was never knocked down. But his biggest fight came after he hung up his gloves, when drugs and suicide devastated his family. Chuvalo is both a top-flight boxing memoir and a poignant, hard-hitting story of coping with unimaginable loss. About the Author GEORGE CHUVALO was the reigning Canadian heavyweight boxing champion for twenty-one years, from 1958 until 1979. Ranked among the world's top 10 boxers for much of his career, Chuvalo faced many of the best fighters of the last century: Muhammad Ali, George Foreman, Floyd Patterson, Ernie Terrell, Joe Frazier, Jerry Quarry and many others. He is a member of Canada's Sports Hall of Fame, and in 1997 he was inducted into the World Boxing Hall of Fame in Los Angeles. Today, Chuvalo speaks to students, parents and other groups about how drugs devastated his family. He lives north of Toronto with his wife, Joanne.
