(FEB 8) Legendary cutman and Hall of
famer Chuck Bodak passed away yesterday morning at the age of 92. I had
the pleasure of meeting Chuck at the Johnny Tapia mainliner fight at the
MGM Hotel, in Las Vegas, Nevada, in October of 2000.

Chuck worked with the best
of them in the sport that included Oscar De La Hoya, Rocky Marciano,
Muhammad Ali…and more.
Chuck will be missed by all in boxing. He was a great man, with a unique
sense of humor and kindness towards others. He will be remembered for
his true and long standing dedication to the sport.
