Boxing Legend George Chuvalo Joins the Fight Against Bullying:
Thanks to everyone that came out and packed the house at the Texas Gate on April 19 to support the "Keep it in the Ring II" 2016 Kick Off with George Chuvalo. George is seen here holding the heavy bag for a young aspiring boxer at Rival Gym in Cochrane as part of our kick off week.
Walking into the ring to fight Muhammed Ali, it would have been easy to be intimidated. But for Canadian boxing legend George Chuvalo, who went the distance with the champ at Maple Leaf Gardens 50 years ago,standing up for himself was always part of his makeup. And he’s hoping to instill that same will in youngsters battling against bullies. Ali, already proclaimed “The Greatest” and considered one of the most intimidating fighters who ever lived, was sent to hospital nursing some brutally battered ribs.
