George Chuvalo was the undisputed Heavyweight Champion of Canada for 21 years and ranked in the international Top 10 of heavyweight professional boxers. He is a Canadian Sports Hall of Fame member (inducted 1990) and travels nationwide to speak about drugs and how they have impacted his life.

The Oakville native has established the Donovan Bailey Fund, which is committed to the advancement and financial assistance of Canada’s most talented athletes.
