Chuck Walker

Postby Hissner » 23 Jun 2006, 11:24

Does anyone have pro record of 1976 Olympic representative Chuck Walker?

He was an amatuer champion from Mesa, AZ. After turning pro eventually moved to Houston, TX. under management of Abercrombe.

Only half a dozen of his fights are shown on Box Rec. He had to have over 20 bouts.

Yeah, this site only has him listed as having had nine pro fights, but I know that he had more because I followed his career back in late 70s through the mid 80s.
While boxrec only gives him credit for having had one bout before facing & losing to veteran Darryl Penn via KO by 4, I distincly recall him as being 3-0 going into that fight. With all three victories being via 10 round decision wins over failly solid journeymen opponents.
Obviously, Walker was given a bit of special attention because of his electing to jump right from the amatuers into full 10 round fights. Something rarely done, especially here in the States.
But, then came to upset loss to Penn whom, if I recall correctly, dropped Chuck three times in the fourth round of their bout, followed by a retirement that lasted a couple-few years. After which he hooked up with Abercrombe & her Houston Boxing Association.
I'm not sure how many fights he had while with them, but the record doesn't appear to be missing anything. The last fight that I'm aware of him having was that D10 with "Bigfoot" Martin who at the time actually was a reasonably touted supermiddleweight - lt. heavy prospect. This being before he discovered his appetite & went on to become the journeyman's journeyman of heavyweight opponents.
