Jeff Fenech (born May 28, 1964) in Sydney, Australia, is a former boxer, to whom many Australians refer to as the greatest boxing champion to ever come out of that country-continent. Fenech is considered by many to be a national sports hero in Australia. In retirement Fenech has kept busy and now he is the owner of a sports clothing brand that carries his name in Australia. In addition, he was inducted in 2002 into the International Boxing Hall Of Fame in Canastota, New York. Fenech retired with a record of 27 wins, 3 losses and 1 draw, with 20 wins by knockout.
