Bodzianowski Passes Away


Craig Bodzianowski, the only leg amputee to challenge for a world title, has died at his home in Illinois, USA over the weekend at the age of 52.

 

Bodzianowski, who lost on points to Robert Daniels for the WBA cruiserweight title in July 1990, lost his right leg in a motorcycle accident in 1984, two years after he had turned professional at the age of 21.

 

Bodzianowski won his first 13 bouts before the accident and continued to fight after being fitted with a prosthetic leg.

 

After losing to Daniels he won another seven bouts before retiring in December 1973 with a record of 31-4-1, including 23 knockouts.

 

He was never stopped in his career and all his defeats were against top-class opponents.

 

He reportedly died in his sleep
