Gary Summerhays - Boxer

Gary would have an interesting pro journey after his amateur day
with a Canadian amateur title in 1969, then turn pro in 1970 and
compete until 1983.

An important victory in 1972 was a win over Stewart Gray and in 1973
Gary would win the Canadian light-heavyweight tiutle with a win over
Al Sparks.  

The next big victory was over Commonwealth light-heavyweight
champion Tony Mundine in Australia.  And in the closing fights
of his journey, Gary Summerhays would have a couple of bouts
with popular Eddie Melo.
