George Kochan was a ranking contender in the middleweight and light-heavyweight divisions from August 1943 until April 1946.

A portion of the linked career record is courtesy of Dan Cuoco and the International Boxing Research Organization, Journal #78, Page 111.

The following undated 1941 fights are listed in Kochan's record in various editions of The Ring Record Book, for instance in the 1948 edition, page 287. The two supposed Pittsburgh fights were not reported in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, and the status of all of them should be regarded as doubtful until if and when actual newspaper reports can be located.
