Clyde Gray was a perennial contender in the Welterweight divsion for much of the 1970s. He challenged unsuccessfully for versions of the World Welterweight title three times: vs. Jose Napoles (L 15), Angel Espada (L 15), and Pipino Cuevas (KO by 2). Gray held the Canadian and British Commonwealth Titles during his career. He was also the brother of Light Heavyweight boxer Stewart Gray. Following his 1977 loss to Ray Chavez Guerrero, Gray was crowned the Canadian Professional Boxing Council welterweight champion. The CPBC rejected Guerrero as a legitimate Canadian champion because he was born in Venezuela.
