Bob Cleroux, also known as Robert Cleroux, was the Y.M.H.A. Montreal 1956 Golden Gloves Heavyweight Champion. He was never stopped in his pro career. He made a comeback in 1968 and won 9 straight, including an upset over Cleveland Williams. However, Cleroux "blew" a title bout with Jimmy Ellis when he lost an upset 10-round decision to Billy Joiner. Cleroux was stripped of his Canadian heavyweight title in February of 1963 for failing to meet George Chuvalo as stipulated by contract.
