Biographical Info

The greatest Canadian Heavyweight of all-time, George Chuvalo is still standing despite deep personal tragedy. He fought all of the world’s greatest fighters of his era – Ali, Foreman, Frazier — and was NEVER knocked down. After going toe-to-toe with Chuvalo, Ali remarked that he was “the toughest man I ever fought.” Chuvalo finished with a record of 73 wins (64 KOs), 18 losses and 2 draws. However, Chuvalo paid a terrible price – he lost two sons to drug addiction, as well as another son and his wife to drugs. Chuvalo now speaks around the globe on the dangers of drugs and drug addiction. For his work, he was awarded the Order of Canada in 1998. (Cdn. Sports HOF ’90)
