Biography

Jan SZCZEPANSKI

Jan Szczepański was a Olympic gold medalist as a lightweight at the 1972 München Games and also won the 1971 European Championship, beating Romanian Vasile Antoniu in Madrid. He was Polish amateur champion in 1961-63, but at the end of that year he was arrested for alcohol and drug abuse. In 1968 he made a boxing comeback, celebrating his greatest moments in Madrid and München, and winning national titles again in 1969-71. In 1973 Szczepański retired and worked as a boxing coach, occasionally participating as an actor in Polish films.
