George Bochetto

George Bochetto, a nationally renowned trial Lawyer and the former Pennsylvania State Boxing Commissioner has had an affinity for boxing since the days of his youth.

In addition to his nationwide litigation practice, Bochetto has been a lifelong member of the athletic community and was appointed Pennsylvania’s State Boxing Commissioner in 1995, serving until 2002, during which he completely revamped the regulation of boxing in Pennsylvania.

While attending college, Bochetto sat in his dorm room, alone, and listened to the historic Ali vs. Foreman fight, the Rumble in the Jungle on the radio. Bochetto was held on the edge of his seat as he learned how, with hard work and determination, anything was possible.

His passion for the sport of boxing and the incredible legacy of Muhammad Ali, fueled his desire to see this cultural icon celebrated.

It was in 2015 that Bochetto first became involved with the Muhammad Ali Childhood Home project, and has been steadfast in his determination to restore the home into a Museum for visitors around to the world to experience the living history that is the childhood home of Muhammad Ali.
