Józef Grudzień had a great career in boxing as the winner of two Olympic medals (gold in Tokyo 1964, silver in Mexico City 1968), coach and member of the Polish Olympic Committee, but at heart he remained an amateur in the noblest sense of the term, never seduced by the glitz and money of Big Sport.
