Excerpt: Duane Bobick (born 24 August 1950 in Little Falls, Minnesota) is a former boxer from the United States, who became world amateur heavyweight champion in 1971, and also won the gold medal at the 1971 Pan American Games. He fought for the United States at the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich, West Germany. Bobick's younger brother Rodney Bobick was also a heavyweight boxer, though less successful, and died in a single car crash in 1977. Six foot, three inches tall and 215 pounds in his prime, Bobick was part of a boxing family and grew up with the sport in the 1960s. A good puncher who developed well early by virtue of countless hours in the gym and ring, Bobick had an outstanding amateur career that included a win over Cuba's famous Teofilo Stevenson at the 1971 Pan American Games. Bobick added another future champion to his list when he beat Larry Holmes to be named to the 1972 U.S. Olympic boxing team for the Munich Olympics. But lurking on Bobick's amateur record was a devastating second round KO loss at the hands of future heavyweight contender Ron Lyle. Bobick was unconscious in the ring for close to 10minutes after the knockout. It was a loss that forewarned Bobick's career long difficulties with big punching heavyweights. Bobick was touted as a rising star at this early stage, and may have been overconfident as he met Stevenson again during the 1972 Olympic games. An alternative view was presented by ABC's boxing commentator Howard Cosell who worried aloud pre-bell that Stevenson's route to the quarterfinals had been much easier than Bobick's. The fight was even after two rounds with Stevenson getting the edge in round one and Bobick rallying in round two. In the third round, Bobick fell victim to a nemesis that would bedevil him for the rest of his boxing career; the overhand right. Stunned, floored and eventually defenseless, Bobick was mercilessly pounded by the Cuban champion until the bout was stopped. The stunning loss was Bobick's last bout as an amateur.
