From the Publisher

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.

Light rubbing at the corners of the dustjacket; price intact; no interior markings. Said Mike Holmes, "He's the nicest, toughest guy I've ever met. He's got a heart of gold-all he cares about is other people." And Derek Sanderson, "A lot of us have faced personal challenges through the course of our lives. I've certainly had my share. But George Chuvalo has truly shown what a battler he is. Losing a wife and three sons is not something anyone should have to go through."
