The Story of George Chuvalo, Canada's Greatest Boxer

by Richard Brignall

The story of George Chuvalo - Canada's greatest boxer.

George Chuvalo only wanted one thing: to become a boxer. When Chuvalo stepped into the ring, he was fearless. In ninety-three professional fights between 1956 and 1979, boxing everyone from George Foreman to Muhammad Ali, he was never once knocked out. But this heavyweight boxing legend never had it easy. After losing many loved ones to drugs, Chuvalo has also become a role model out of the ring by speaking out and fighting against addiction.
