Chuck Bodak Update

Thank You Michele for your continuing up dates on truly a boxing icon Chuck Bodak.

Here is my favorite picture of him that I took ten years ago, October 1997.

Chuck Bodak

Chuck Bodak, born in Gary Indiana, started boxing at the young age of 13, and later at the age of 20 became a coach & instructor.

Through the years he worked with many kids in boxing in the Gary and Chicago area, before he became what he is known as today – one of the best ever cutmen in boxing history.

He has worked in the corners (just to name a few) for Jimmy Ellis, Bob Foster, Albert Davila, Thomas Hearns and Oscar De La Hoya.

May our sincerest prayers go out to Chuck Bodak for a speedy recovery!
