Honoring Corky Gonzales

March 20, 2012 by The Sawaya Law Firm

The Sawaya Law Firm sponsored Boxing Night and a dedication to Rudolfo Corky Gonzales at the Denver Athletic Club on March 16, 2012. On that same day Corky was inducted… into the Golden Gloves Hall of Fame!

In his day, Corky was rated number three in the world in his weight class. He was a phenomenal fighter in the ring and also fought for the rights of the people. Many people considered Corky a guiding light to escape poverty and oppression. John Nunez, who was part of the Denver Athletic Club boxing night, was a boxing student of Corky Gonzales, and considered Corky his mentor/teacher. John gave us this treasured photo of him with the boxing legend. Corky was the central leader of chicano civil rights in Colorado. His legacy is still one of the driving forces in Colorado civil rights. The Sawaya Law Firm was proud to dedicate the boxing evening to this great Colorado man.
