“GODFATHER” OF CUTMEN-CHUCK BODAK SUFFERS STROKE
02 September, 2007 by Pedro Fernandez


”LIVING LEGEND” BODAK NOW 94-YEARS YOUNG

Anaheim, CA- If you were to ask me about people that didn’t get a fair shake in boxing, Chuck Bodak, cutman extraordinaire would be on the list. In this multi-million dollar business that masquerades as a sport, boxing is a world that screws, if not shuns the honest people that have the “nerve” to speak their mind. Now 94-years old, Chuck Bodak has spoken his mind on more than one subject and more than one occasion. As of Sunday afternoon, Chuck was in good spirits after suffering a “mild” stroke this weekend. According to those that have been in contact with the living legend, Chuck is suffering post stroke from some “slight paralysis.”

CHUCK TRAINED ALI FOR FOUR YEARS TOO!

Besides being a cutman for Oscar De La Hoya, Evander Holyfield, Jorge Paez, Julio Cesar Chavez and Genaro Hernandez, Chuck trained Muhammad Ali, back when he was Cassius Clay for the last four years of an amateur run that culminated with an Olympic championship in 1960. Never one to boast or brag, Bodak is a published author who penned a book on boxing in the 1960s, and a man with an abundance of character and class. We wish him a fully and speedy recovery!

A true boxing character. I had the pleasure of meeting him a few times while he was with Delahoya. We talked boxing and he was really cool. I wish him the best

Chuck Bodak is a jewel. He worked my fighter Keith McKnight's corner twice at the Great Western Forum in the 90's. McKnight had severe problems with his left hand. Chuck molded a plastice cast for him to wear while training. For Free! We love you Chuck.
