Charles "Chuck" Walker was the 156-pound representative for the United States at the 1976 Montreal Olympic Games. He was headquartered out of Mesa, Arizona, for all of his amateur career, and the first four bouts of his pro career. Walker then moved to Cut n Shoot, Texas, to resume boxing after a five-year layoff with new trainer, Henry Harris. During the last several months of 1986 and the first few of 1987, Walker was rated in the top ten in most ratings organizations--some as a super-middleweight and others as a light-heavyweight.

After quitting boxing, Walker worked as a professional tap dancer. And as of 2006, he is a film director and producer in Conroe, Texas.
