George Chuvalo only wanted one thing: to become a boxer. When Chuvalo stepped into the ring, he was fearless. In ninety-three professional fights between 1956 and 1979, boxing everyone from George Foreman to Muhammad Ali, he was never once knocked out. But this heavyweight boxing legend never had it easy. After losing many loved ones to drugs, Chuvalo has also become a role model out of the ring by speaking out and fighting against addiction.


[Fry Reading Level - 4.8

"An inspirational tale of a real, down to earth Canadian."

- Eva Wilson Resource Links

"For anyone with an interest in boxing, Fearless has many interesting details contained in text boxes imbedded within the story."

- Suzanne Pierson Canadian Review of Materials

Recordbooks are non-fiction stories that help reluctant readers understand history and social issues through the lens of the true story of a sports hero. Showing the process of social change on issues like racism, diversity and conflict, these books engage and provide historical context by telling the often-heroic story of how an athlete or a team worked to change attitudes around them.
